Cleveland Rolls

End of the first day and I can say it is going to be a very good conference. I neglected to insert a link for Derek Thomas. Find info about him here. He currently teaches Theology at Reformed Seminary in Jackson, MS.

Here is a summary of this afternoon: Books and books, many of them FREE. Food, great food, for both soul and body. Worship was engaging and Voddie Baucham "brought the heat" from I Corinthians 15 as he talked about Preaching to "Post moderns." Can't do it justice here, but it was solid.

Alistair Begg is just recovering from surgery and will likely only play a small role in the conference. He spoke for about 10 minutes. If you have heard Begg you know he can pack a bunch of truth in a short period of time. What a blessing to the Kingdom.

One of the interesting things about this conference is the breadth under this evangelical tent. Baptists, Anglicans, Methodists, E-Free and more, all rallying around the essential truths of the faith and the gospel. While there are differences a plenty on fringe issues and minor points of doctrine, it is not enough to divide the men who seek to hold high the gospel banner. Quite refreshing indeed.
