    Hello to all at the Puritan Board!

    I have decided to take the plunge and sign up as a member. I look forward to edifying interactions, and I hope to learn a lot from other folk in the Reformed family. I hope this is a place to do both. I sometimes feel a bit of a lone wolf in my immediate context when it comes to the Reformed faith, so I am grateful for brothers and sisters further afield.

    I live in the South West of England, and I am a husband and a new dad (7 month old son), which takes up a lot of my time, but I consider myself greatly blessed by the Lord.

    Looking forward to getting to know you.

    Soli Deo Gloria

    Hello, Tim!

    Weirdly, there is a little village called Pennsylvania near where I live...think I'd rather visit the one you're from, though!

    Nice to hear from you.

    Very interesting! I just looked it up and it looks like that village was named after my state! Normally around us, we have are towns named after European places. I live in New Oxford with East Berlin and Hanover are right around the corner. :)

    Greetings, Matt. Nice to see you on PB. For the benefit of everyone else, Matt and I are friends (and were fellow congregants) from back when he was studying in Belfast.

    Oh that's pretty cool. Yeah, I'd imagine it would be that way round, coming from the old world to the new world. Interesting that Pennsylania is named the other way around, though; never really thought about it before!

    Hello Matt!

    I've also just recently joined the Puritan Board from (also very soggy) Sussex. Nice to know there are PB people relatively close by in real life!

    @ReformedBrit, I also live in Pennsylvania. To add to the city names from England, I grew up near the city of York (in Pennsylvania). It has a White rose drop, and another city, Lancaster, has a Red rose drop.

    We are very original.

    A Lancaster and a York?! Who decided that the history between those places needed to be exported!

    The Berbers are an ethnic group from North Africa, it's probable that Augustine was one. It seems to a joke based on your profile picture.

    Also, hello from a fellow UK person.

    Lancaster and York county here in SC are the same, and most of the original settlers came from Pennsylvania via the Great Wagon Road. But enough about that.

    Welcome!

    Well, if we want to confuse things further, Pennsylvania has a Lancaster city and Lancaster county AND a York city and York county.

    Greetings from Pittsburgh, named after one of your Prime Ministers! It's also pretty soggy, but at least we have an hour to two more daylight down here at this time of year! :)

    I've actually been to Lacock before, which is pretty close to you. That was also one of the most pleasant field trip locations on that semester abroad!
