Funeral Sermon For John Owen – David Clarkson – 1683

David Clarkson served as a co-pastor with John Owen at the end of Owen’s life and preached Owen’s funeral sermon at which he said of Owen: “We have had a light in this candlestick, we have had a light in this candlestick, which did not only enlighten the room, but gave light to others fare and near: but it is put out. We did not sufficiently value it.” When Clarkson died, his funeral sermon was preached by William Bates. (From the Puritan Board)
