The more I learn about life here on earth the more I long to know about heaven. I suppose it is possible to think too much about the world to come, but I suspect that the greater danger is thinking too little. In the Bible it appears that right thinking about the future is connected to right living in the present. With that in mind, I offer these four thoughts about things we do now that we won't do in heaven. Keep reading...keep reading»»

Plenary Session Three:  “How The Trinity Shapes The Gospel” – Michael Reeves  How are the precious truths of the Gospel rooted in the essential character of God?  Everything that is beautiful about the Gospel is only so because God is Triune. At the beginning of the Reformation Luther called the Trinity the highest article on which all others hang. Why is that?
