I see the point. “Wee Free” is perhaps not the most respectful thing to call a church, even if the appellation has had a long tradition and (in general) people mean no malice by it. (Here’s the full article on the Free Church website.)
Still, I can’t help remembering that “Christian” was probably originally meant as an insult, meaning “follower of Christ” — or possibly even “wee Christ.” Believers considered it a privilege to be insulted for the cause of Christ, and wore the name as a badge of honour.
A Scripture also came to mind:
I Samuel 15:17
And Samuel said, When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel?
It makes me a little queasy when a leader of a Christian group tells the world how big and important they are. That kind of thinking got Saul (and myriad others) in trouble.
May the Lord always keep us wee in our own eyes, whatever others may think. That’s the only way we’ll ever begin to be worthy of being called Wee Followers of Christ.
