We just received the brochure for the 2009 L’Abri conference in Rochester, MN. This year’s theme is “Proclaiming All God’s Wondrous Works: Creation, Redemption, and Future Glory.” and not surprisingly, the line-up looks as solid as ever.
We won’t be making it this year again, due to some other travel plans, but if we were attending, here’s what we’d be checking out (scheduling conflicts notwithstanding):
- “I believe in God… Maker of Heaven and Earth…” — Jerram Barrs
- “Looking into Eternity: The Heavens Declare God’s Glory” — Arend Poelarends
