Quick Update from Ligonier's National Conference

It's hard to believe that today is our third day here. We have been so busy and were without internet connection until yesterday. I had intended to blog last night but was unable to as the laptop was dead. I will post an overview of yesterday's conference sessions later, as well as today's when the day is over. We heard from RC Sproul, Jr., Ken Jones and RC Sproul Sr. yesterday in pre-conference, then John MacArthur and RC Sproul again last night. This morning we have already heard from Ligon Duncan and were treated to some rap by Ligon and his brother John (you would have to be here!) and we are now listening to Ken Jones speak. His session is titled One Body, Many Members. More on it all later...

Quickly, I want to thank Mom for my Starbucks gift card and thanks to Lexi for the goodies and the handmade card. How exciting to open my suitcase Wednesday evening and find treasures and encouraging notes inside. I've been munching my treats and will use my gift card today. I am convinced that I have the best family ever!

And last but certainly not least, I have to wish Lexi a very Happy Birthday! Twelve years ago God sent her as the answer to my prayer for a little sister. I love you, Lexi, and thank God always that you were His perfect answer to my prayers!

More from the conference (including pictures) later...

A believer should not be sitting under a teacher that is under church discipline as R C Sproul Jr is currently. His speaking at that conference is a travesty.

Hi Scott,
Thank you for visiting my blog. I'll have more to say about the conference and R.C. Sproul Jr. in particular when I get back home.

Hi Shelbi! I really wanted to go to the Ligonier conference too. But I've got the same concerns that Scott mentions. I just didn't see how I could attend a conference that invites defrocked ministers to speak, even if he is the son of Dr. R.C. Sproul. As much as I admire Dr. Sproul I'm really disappointed that he had his defrocked son speak there. It's just not right.

Did anyone say anything about R.C. Jr. being defrocked?
