A Really Great Conference

By admin | January 19, 2009

On Friday and Saturday Jan. 16&17, Westminster Seminary California hosted its annual faculty conference. With 2009 being the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin, the theme of the conference was  . . . .  well, you can guess. Actually, it was “Calvin’s Legacy: Reforming the Church Today”. Drs. Godfrey, Baugh, Clark, Horton and Jones spoke on various topics of importance and relevance. It was really a well-done conference.

For those who couldn’t attend, Dr. Clark posted a live blog on the WSC website:             http://www.wscal.edu/blog/conference2009/index.php. This is the main page; links to each of the sessions are on the right side of the page. I presume that CD’s will be available soon.

There were many highlights–among them Dr. Clark’s presentation on the Reformation of worship; Dr. Horton’s really marvelous exposition of the distinction between Law and Gospel, and Dr. Godfrey’s closing presentation on Calvin the Friendly Reformer.

There were plenty of Baptists present. I saw friends from North Dakota, Northern California, and a new freind from Cincinnati Ohio. Everyone expressed their appreciation for the excellent minsitries. Maybe you should plan on attending next year’s conference. Oh, by the way, did I mention that it’s 80 degrees in Escondido today? What temperature is it where you live?

Tomorrow I will post the outline of Dr. Clark’s excellent presentation.
