I am so thankful for the people of Metro East. I am grateful that they allow me the opportunity to attend important conferences. I am writing this post from Paducah, Kentucky. I decided to make a road trip out of the journey to North Carolina. I'll arrive in time tomorrow for the first session. The conference may be an historic one for Southern Baptists. It is called "Building Bridges: Southern Baptists and Calvinism" (http://www.lifeway.com/lwc/article_main_page/0%2C1703%2CA%25253D165917%252526M%25253D201125%2C00.html?). There is a full schedule of outstanding speakers. I hope that the conference will help Southern Baptists put away the daggers over this issue.
While I am thankful for the opportunity to attend the conference I will, as always, miss being home. I missed being in the pulpit this morning but I know that Kris did a great job. I am blessed to work with men who do not need me to be effective in their ministry.
I will be posting daily on the conference sessions. I hope they will be helpful and encouraging to you.
