Rutherford's correspondents - 8. John Meine

Meine was an Edinburgh merchant and strong Presbyterian.  He was censured for encouraging non-conforming ministers who appeared before the High Commission. In 1624 he refused to comply with the instruction to kneel when receiving the Lord'ssupper and was sentence by the Privy Council to banishment to Elgin. When King James died in 1625 he was released. He rose daily about 3am and was in prayer and reading until family devotions at 6am. Then he went to his work.
