Conferences Galore

It seems that a day does not go by that I do not get some email about another “free conference” at someone’s church. I deem this the “Age of the Free Conference” for this very reason. I’m not sure what it means. My less dark side says, “This is good. It shows that we are hungry for teaching, for fellowship, for the Word, for doctrine. It is a sign of confessional revival, a sign of good things to come.” My cynical side (which often seems to loom a bit larger) says: Tra-la-la. Another conference. (Yawn) Another way to put off the work I am supposed to be doing, another way to spend money, another way to get away from my family responsibilities. I guess it’s the “in” thing to do though.

  1. Don’t knock it. I wish we had more than one a year out here in the pagan frontier of the great northwest. Go and bless your brothers and yourself.
