A Week to Remember

I just returned home from Louisville, Kentucky, the site for this year’s ‘Together for the Gospel’. The speakers for this year were John MacArthur, Thabtiti Anyabwile, Mark Dever, R.C. Sproul, Al Mohler, John Piper, and C.J. Mahaney, and Bob Kauflin led worship. The teaching was incredibly rich, and in fact each session has already been posted here - If you have the time, these would be very helpful for you to listen to. The session by Al Mohler is pretty tough going, but well worth it. It would be very difficult to choose a favorite session, but the one by Thibiti is very provocative and his message re-calibrated the way I think about race vs. ethnicity. Every bit as rich was the privilege of seeing old friends and making new ones. I came away with a fresh affection for the gospel, and love for the Savior. Dear friends we have an incomprehensibly rich salvation, and an incredibly gracious Savior. We will spend eternity exploring the riches of God’s mercy towards us through His Son.

Special thanks to COR for releasing me to attend this, and special thanks to the T4G volunteers (Thanks Tom! It was great to see you. You are a dear brother and a faithful servant.), the T4G speakers, and to all the good friends that I saw there. What a wonderful time!

Also, I just finished listening to the new Sovereign Grace worship CD, Come Weary Saints (, and what a rich gift this music is. This was released at the conference and we’ll see if we can get some for the COR resource center. You will be the richer for having heard this.

Now I’m tired and need sleep. I’ll see you either at Parent/Youth on Friday or at worship on Sunday.
