|A little over two years ago, while I was home taking care of my late husband, I listened to a Ligoier conference streamed on the computer HERE for 20 quotes. |
Now I live about an hour and a half away from St. Andrews Chapel in Sanford, Florida, where the September 19 and 20, 2014 conference was held. I worked on the 19th, but I did go on Saturday the 20th. The announcement was made that all taped sessions would be streamed on Thursday September 25th, so look for the conference then.
On Friday R. C. Sproul presented the theme, "The Christological Crisis" in the first session, Michael Morales spoke on "Christ in the Shadows". Stephen Nichols spoke on "Christ and Him Crucified". I look forward to hearing these Friday sessions streamed next week.
Saturday morning started with the singing of O Worship the King--loved this singing in the cross shaped chapel.
Welshman Dr. Derek Thomas spoke on The Life of Christ and Christ and Him Resurrected. Thomas is the senior pastor of First Presbyterian in Columbia, South Carolina, replacing Dr. Sinclair Ferguson who has returned to his native Scotland. Before he went back to Scotland, Derek asked Sinclair what memorable moment Sinclair has had. Sinclair said reading John Murphy about the obedience of Christ and Derek went on to elaborate on some of that obedience. Thomas said:
Question and Answers. Above from left to right is the moderator Lee Webb, and speakers Michael Morales, R. C. Sproul Jr., Steven Nichols, Gregory Beale, Derek Thomas, and R. C. Sproul. Here are some quotes from that session:
The panel was asked about their favorite parts/books of the Bible:
Just a thought--I am always discovering new parts of Scripture I like as I go through the Bible each year with the Daily Audio Bible. I think it was interesting that they were asked about their favorites.
Thanks so much to the Reformation Bible College and Ligonier ministries for this free event. Even the coffee was free. I stood in a long line to buy my lunch, but had fascinating conversations with those around me.
Added Sept. 26th (the Sept. 19th sessions):
*My notebook computer was dead for Dr. Gregory Beake's talk on Why God Became Man and for R. C. Sproul Jr. 's talk on Christ and Him Ascended. I would charge it in the nursery so I could use it again. Now, folks, I wear hearing aides and missed some of the Saturday humor. I must visit my audiologist and get an adjustment, and pick up on some of the humor when I get time to listen to the streamed recordings.
