This November marks the 400th Anniversary of the Synod of Dort. St. John’s RCUS desired to mark the occasion. So, in commemoration of that event there is a book about it now out to which Rev. Powell and Mosley and myself contributed along with Rev Frank Walker and Rev. Jim West. It is now available for order. Perhaps you might want to check it out.
As illness derails a group effort, the theme of “the just shall live by faith” is explored through the incident of Gideon. Walking by faith is closely related to knowing God is with us. Lord willing we can return to the Woes of Habakkuk next time. Until then enjoy!
The tension in Switzerland was high and this incident in 1524 shows the tension on both sides, but ends with death. Many lessons can be learned from mob mentality to persecution for righteousness sake. Take a walk down this path and learn about Zurich in 1524.
With Rev. Mosley on vacation, it is time to chat about fiction and its role and examine some good fiction with Rev. Matt Powell. Enjoy a listen and then go read a good book.
The aftermath of the Zurich debates in 1523 had impact around the rest of Switzerland. A quick look at St. Gall and Appenzell as the Reformation continues through Bible studies and priests. The word of God marches on in power.
The Lord’s answer to Habakkuk continues in chapter 2. The discussion begins on the first woe given by God. The discussion ranges from translation issues to capitalism and to the gospel. Enjoy.
Walking the Old Paths explores the year 1523 in Strasbourg, the imperial free city. This is the year that Matthew Zell got reinforcements for his work including Casper Hedio, Wolfgang Captio, and Martin Bucer. Take a listen to see how this applies to us today.
The gang discusses Habakkuk 2:1-5, which is the beginning of God’s second answer to Habakkuk. It includes the much quoted 2:4 “the just shall live by faith”. Take a listen to Revs. Powell and Mosley discuss this topic. And we actually end up with three different ideas in a rather surprising place.
Zurich and Zwingli take the lead in the Reformation with the first debates. And the church shows its wisdom in dealing with those who have not yet understood. A lesson or two for our own day can be found from these leaders of Zurich.
The dynamic duo of Revs. Matt Powell and JP Mosley return to discuss Habakkuk. Today talking the end of chapter one where Habakkuk makes a second complaint to God. The group looks at whether or not this is an acceptable thing and why.
