Update…Children Desiring God 2009 National Conference

Several weeks ago, I posted a summary of the 2009 Children Desiring God 2009 National Conference: Oh Glorious God based on blog posts from people who attended the event.  That post can be found here!

Children Desiring God has now posted the audio from plenary speakers at that event on their website here. You can listen to or download the following sessions:

These are definately worth listening to!  The Children Desiring God website currently says that the audio from the break out sessions will be posted soon.  Once those are available, I will let you know.

Children Desiring God – A Summary of the 2009 National Conference

It seems like everybody and their brother was at the Orange Conference this week, and I have enjoyed reading the tweets, blogs and more from people there this week.  It turns out their is another Children’s Ministry conference going on this week.  Children Desiring God 2009 National Conference: Oh Glorious God is also going on this weekend.  Jared Kennedy over at SojournKids.com is doing a great job blogging the various sessions.  Some of the speakers include John Piper, Paul David Tripp, Bruce Ware and David Michael.  I’m not all that familiar with Mr. Michael, but I have read the other three, and given what i have read, I imagine this must be a great event.  Since this conference seems to be getting less attention in the blogosphere, I thought I would provide a summary of some of the key points from Mr. Kennedy’s blog posts as well as John Piper’s. My point here is just to provide some interesting insights from what has been written thus far about the conference.  Here’s what has been going on in a bullet point format.

The End is Coming!!!

I am not a sandwich board wearing – yell at the the top of your lungs – the world is coming to an end kind of guy.  That said, the bible is clear.

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.” [Revelation 21:1]

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.” [Mark 13:31]

Dr. Russel Moore posted an interesting article on his blog yesterday regarding a more personal view of the study of Eschatology (The Doctrine of End Times).  I am with Dr. Moore on not breaking fellowship on questions of Eschatology.  The one thing I come across that sets me off though is the abundance of people who “predict” the time of the end.  It’s clear that they’ve never read their Bibles:

32 “But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven,nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Be on guard, keep awake. For you do not know when the time will come.” [Mark 13:32-33]
