Since yesterday I’ve been in Chicago for The Gospel Coalition conference. It’s freezing up here!

Anyway, I’m here with some friends and am thoroughly enjoying all the people I’m meeting. Many people, in fact, that I’ve never met before have come up to me and told me that they have been praying for me and for our one new church. Isn’t the larger Body of Christ a great gift?

Today I heard two excellent messages. One from Tim Keller entitled “The Grand Demythologizer: The Gospel and Idolatry” from Acts 19:21-41 and one from John Piper entitled, “Feed the Flame of God’s Gift: Unashamed Courage in the Gospel” from 2 Timothy 1:1-12. 

You can find out more about both the conference and the larger initiative here and here.

Because my access to the internet is limited this week, the posting here will be slim. Please pray that I get home safely on Thursday.
