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.
