John Macdonald - Revival (1832)

About the year 1832, when the cholera outbreak had struck terror to the heart of the citizens, Dr MacDonald assisted at a communion in the East Church. On the Monday he preached from these words, "Having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, He hath shed forth this which ye now see and hear." It was a masterly and complete defence of the revival. "The preacher was unusually calm until the end of his discourse, then he was on fire, summing up and relating in quick succession the movement he had witnessed and the part he had taken in it, and manifesting the effect of the revival on Easter Ross.
