Calvary Presbyterian Church Alexandria, VA
Many years ago, to become a member of our Presbyterian church, we attended confirmation classes. The classes involved memorizing the Westminster Shorter Catechism. The two questions and answers I managed to memorize have come back to me from time to time. They grounded me and focused me on what is important in life. I ran across this blog from Ray Ortlund today. He relates a similar story to mine from Selected Shorter Writings of Benjamin B. Warfield (Phillipsburg, 1970). Click here to read.
In my sorting I found pages taken from different Calvary publications picturing and noting the work in which the people of the church were involved. I have also included a letter from Mrs. Treadwell exclaiming how easy it was to have my dad visit them because of his laid back personality.

Dave was involved with at least four different committees
