T4G – Day 1 Photos

I linked up this morning with the official photographer for the conference. Unfortunately his computer blew up last night and he has been unable to upload photographs. I guess he shouldn’t have relied on a Mac; some people never learn. I did manage, though, to nab one of the memory cards from his camera and I pulled a few photos from it. They are, as you can see, from yesterday evening when C.J. Mahaney introduced Thabiti Anyabwile, from when Thabiti …

T4G – Mark Dever

We enjoyed a break of almost an hour and then gathered together again to sing “On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand” and to hear Mark Dever’s session. He discussed the temptation to improve upon the gospel. His talk was built upon five “calls” that are dangerous to the gospel—five ways churches may be tempted to adapt or shrink or expand the gospel message in order to make it more palatable. The First Call – Make the gospel public. The …

T4G – John MacArthur

Day two of Together for the Gospel began early. I assume my experience is typical in that I went too bed too late last night and arose blurry-eyed so I could get some breakfast and make my way to the convention center for 8 AM. Today we will be hearing from John MacArthur, Mark Dever, R.C. Sproul and Al Mohler. We arrived this morning to find on each of our seats copies of The Courage to the Protestant by David …

T4G – Thabiti Anyabwile

After dinner we gathered for the second session and the second panel. Prior to the session we sang “O For a Thousand Tongues” and a new adaptation of “Oh the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus” drawn from “Come Weary Saints,” the most recent project from Sovereign Grace Music. Bob Kauflin has added a chorus which says, “Oh the deep, deep love / All I need and trust / Is the deep, deep love of Jesus.” The session was followed with …

T4G – First Panel Session

Together for the Gospel is a conference that offers many panel sessions. In fact, this year there will be five of them. The first one is the only one that featured only the four leaders of Together for the Gospel. And it began with C.J. explaining why he will be leading the panel discussions this year. The reason is classic C.J.. He is the one, he says, who doesn’t really know anything and who will ask the questions out of …

T4G – Welcome & Ligon Duncan

Together for the Gospel ‘08 kicked off at the rather unusual hour of 2:30 PM. Attendance seems to be somewhere in the area of 5500. While registration is open to both men and women, it seems that there is hardly equity. I’d estimate that there are 20 or 30 men here for every woman. As he did at the last conference, Mark Dever opened by giving some prizes to some of the notable guests—the man who came the furthest (turns …
