Electrical Work at Morrison Park


Restoration work is continuing at Morrison Park, to provide much needed electric service.  This service will provide electricity to the Morrison Library Cabin as well as the restroom facility. The work being done will also provide service for future projects such as a new tabernacle, and more outdoor lighting. With adequate weather the first phase of this work should be done within a few weeks. We are very excited to be moving forward with the restoration as we have promised, and  are very excited and grateful these things can be done. Thanks again to all those who have contributed to this project. We still need your support and value your prayers. God Bless, Gary Bewley

Photo of James Morrison, father of Henry Clay Morrison


We are very excited! Nancy Richey just discovered a photo someone placed on Ancestry, purported  to be the photo of James Morrison, the father of Henry Clay Morrison. The photo seems to be period, and to bear a convincing resemblance to the son. James Morrison died around 1861, leaving young Henry Clay, an orphan at the age of four. Morrison was raised in his grandfather's home across the road from present day Morrison Park Holiness Camp Meeting grounds near Glasgow Kentucky. We are very excited to see this long sought after photo.

Heartfelt Salvation, including Henry Clay Morrison, now on line to read and share.

Heartfelt Salvation, The True Salvation, is a fresh and candid look at scripture and testimonies that teach the truth about what Salvation really is. Heartfelt Salvation reminds us of the heavenly promises, assurances and joys from the Spirit of God, clearly shed upon those that belong to Him. This book also takes a hard, and critical look at the practices and deceptions that have longed plagued Christian Churches, that sadly, we believe have led many a trusting soul to eternal doom. Rev. Henry Clay Morrison is prominently featured in the book, with much credence given to his conversion, and testimony, which bears witness to all scriptural truth. Heartfelt Salvation rallies other Christians and true believing Churches to stand up and be heard against the false practices and deceptive teachings, so prominent in the world today.
A proof copy is now on line, and can be accessed at heartfeltsalvation.wordpress.com

The Loss of A True Angel of Morrison Park, Mr. Carl Jackson

                                                     
     A true Angel of Morrison Park has died in Louisville Kentucky. Mr. Jackson has been the greatest sponsor and contributor of the restoration effort at the Morrison Park Holiness Camp Meeting in Glasgow Kentucky. Carl was a nephew of Reverend J. L. Piercy, one of the earliest evangelist and supporters of the Morrison Park Camp Meeting. Piercy went around the world in 1909 with his dearest friend Reverend Henry Clay Morrison, the park's founder.
     Mr. Jackson loved Morrison Park, and was so very excited about the restoration which began in December 2010. Mr. and Mrs. Jackson have been Angels to us beyond words and description. Carl. and his son, Steven, (who has also been a great supporter of the park), visited the park last summer, the day before the dedication of the Kentucky Historical Marker which honored the Park and Reverend Morrison. It was such a pleasure to get to meet Mr. Jackson, and to know that he was pleased with all the work and restoration that had thus far been done.
    The Barren County community, the Park Board of Directors and all the many people who have helped and been involved with the restoration of Morrison Park owes much thanks and appreciation to Mr. and Mrs. Carl Jackson. We could not have even begun to have accomplished all the things that have been done, without their wonderful generosity. We extend to all the Jackson family our deepest condolences, our prayers, and our many thanks for all Mr.Jackson has meant to us. We are very saddened, and feel such a tremendous loss.
