Grace Agenda Conference (Day 1)

You all will need to give me a few days to digest and reflect on both the content and the culture of what I am experiencing in Moscow, Idaho. 

  • It is the first time that I have sat in on a reformed ministerial conference.  I appreciate Doug Wilson’s candor and humor.
  • I enjoyed the men’s robust psalm singing unaccompanied by instruments. And I was humored to see Mark Driscoll in the same context.
  • New Saint Andrews gave me a free copy of Blessed Are the Hungry:  Meditations on the Lord’s Supper (2000) by Peter J. Leithart.
  • Beau and I chatted with Reformed Baptists while eating Mexican burritos at lunch.
  • Mark Driscoll addressed the student body this afternoon, selecting Luke 15 as the text.  Which are you?  the rebellious brother?  or the religious brother?  and how we all need the third brother – Jesus.  The whole message reminded me of The Prodigal God by Tim Keller
  • Tonight, Driscoll preached on “masculinity and the gospel”.  The toughness and tenderness of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Q & A afterword covered on odd assortment, but the end discussion touched on the recent internet stir over Driscoll’s use of the gift of prophecy.  I figured this would come up.
  • At 9:30 pm over at the Nuart, the gang couldn’t get the audio to match up with the video for N.D. Wilson’s Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl.  I left around ten and simply bought the book.
  • Main Street in Moscow is a very interesting phenomenon in Idaho.  All of you need to visit.  For all Idahoans, I think it is a must.
