It was great to visit Oceanside United Reformed Church this past Friday and Saturday and hear Carl Trueman lecture.
Brandon Adams from Orange, CA has posted a very useful expandable outline of John Owen’s commentary on Hebrews 8:6-13. You will find it here.
I cannot express how much I enjoyed our recent tour of England. I will try to post some thoughts and pictures from some of the highlights. A question one must answer when planning a tour such as this is, “How do we keep the Lord’s Day holy?” Just because one is on vacation, we are […]
