Moody - Ewing Place Church Glasgow (1875)



Dr Stalker gave an account of a meeting held in Ewing Place Church, known from its results as the Hundred and One Night. "The large church was packed from floor to ceiling. After Dr Wilson's address, five students of the New College spoke in succession—Henry Drummond, James Brown, Frank Gordon, James Miller, and James Stalker. At this point, Mr Moody, who had been at another meeting, came in accompanied by Principal Cairns, who delivered a brief address. Seeing how deep the impression was, Mr Moody ordered the front seats to be cleared and then invited those who wished to decide for Christ to come forward and occupy the vacant pews. Thereupon from every part of the building a stream began to flow along the passages until a hundred and one young men took their places in front; and Mr Moody proceeded to deal with them solemnly and tenderly." On the following evening the number who took their stand was even larger. The work continued for many months.
