Ligonier Ministries National Conference

Today marks the opening day of the Ligonier Ministries National Conference. It kicks off this morning with several pre-conference sessions dealing with “The Intimate Marriage.” This morning’s epeakers are Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. and Dr. Kenneth Jones. Joni Eareckson Tada was expected to speak but apparently was advised by her doctor to cancel her committment due to health concerns.

The conference proper begins this evening with sessions by Dr. John MacArthur (speaking on “Jesus, the Head of the Church”) and Dr. R.C. Sproul, Sr. (speaking on “One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church”). The conference continues tomorrow and Saturday with such notable speakers as Dr. J. Ligon Duncan, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson, and Max McLean. There are also several more sessions led by MacArthur and Sproul, as well as a few question and answer periods.

All-in-all it looks like it will be an edifying conference for all who attend. One of those who is going to attend, Brian, has asked if I would create an article about the conference so that he, and anyone else who reads my site and happens to be in attendance, can post comments about the various sessions. I guess it will be a bit like liveblogging, but with the action happening in the comments section rather than as seperate articles. So be sure to check the comments for this thread as the conference progresses and we’ll learn what God is teaching those fortunate enough to attend this conference! If anyone else who is at the conference would like to post, please feel free!

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God. The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…
