There were several conferences going on this past weekend from a reformed Christian perspective with some being more well-known than others. This doesn’t mean that the Lesser known conferences were any less important and I thought I would share at least two very interesting ones that were held at this time..
The first was a conference called the Keach conference which was put on by the Reformed Baptist Fellowship of Virginia in the U.S. It had as its theme this year “of God’s Covenants” which was a talk on the London Baptist Confession of 1689 and chapter 7. The main speaker for this event was Dr. Richard Barcellos. For those who would be interested, the audio presentation for this conference is available here.
The second conference I would like to mention is the Desiring God conference which had as its theme The Romantic Rationalist: God, Life, and Imagination in the Work of C.S. Lewis. There were multiple speakers involved including John Piper, Doug Wilson, Kevin Vanhoozer and Randy Alcorn. The video for the conference can be viewed here.
Last night I had the opportunity to watch a live streaming discussion between Douglas Wilson and John Piper on the topic of Christian Culture. There were several controversial topics discussed which are usually ignored due to the fact that they can bring much tension to the table. Both men were exceptionally gracious and there were several things said that really convicted me. How often do we ignore cultural issues because we don’t think it’s any of our business? These men discussed exactly why we must never ignore these cultural issues. When the video is posted from this discussion I will link to it for others to watch.
