Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

A Christian Response to the Virginia Tech Massacre

The most thorough, Christ-honoring response to the horror that occurred at Virginia Tech has been provided thus far by the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President R. Albert Mohler. Dr. Mohler has written an article, Facing the Reality of Evil, posted on the On Faith blog forum sponsored by Newsweek and the Washington Post. Dr. Mohler had also addressed this issue on his radio program the past two days, with shows titled, Tragedy in Blacksburg: Explaining Evil in a Morally Confused Age and Questions from Virginia Tech: Where Was God? I praise God for giving the Church men like Dr. Mohler, who are so ready to give a response for our hope, when so many of us are still in shock, aghast at the news we are hearing.

New Attitude '07

I just registered Abby and myself for the New Attitude: Humble Orthodoxy Conference that will take place here in Louisville on Memorial Day Weekend (May 26-29).

We're very much looking forward to this conference, although we've heard very little about it (presumably because it seems to be primarily focused on churches affiliated with Sovereign Grace Ministries).

This conference looks to be almost like another Together for the Gospel conference, with speakers including Josh Harris, C.J. Mahaney, Mark Dever, John Piper, and Louisville's own Dr. Albert Mohler. A major difference is that participants are divided into community groups at registration, which groups will discuss how we can apply what we learn in the context of our local churches. When conference-time comes, I hope to blog some end-of-day thoughts after returning home from the sessions.
