Piper + Packer + Me = Beeson Divinity School

As many of you know, when I toured Beeson Divinity School in November, John Piper was the speaker for Beeson's annual Reformation Heritage Lectures. Now, scheduled for September 25-27, 2006, is a conference entitled "J.I. Packer and the Evangelical Future." It will have Packer himself, along with Charles Colson, and Edith Humphreys (apparently a prominent Anglican lay theologian--I've never heard of her before this, but here is an article I found through a quick Google search where she speaks out against the Anglican church's reasoning in affirming "the integrity and sanctity of committed adult same-sex relationships"). I don't know exactly what the conference will be about, but it looks like it's going to be awesome.

Seminary rocks my face off, and I haven't even attended a single class! Now I just need to get accepted...

All sorts of Anglican goodness. Still, I couldn't help but notice the conspicuous absence of one prominent Anglican theologian...

Hey, they have to keep a few people back for the two years that I will be there after the coming year, right?

Alright, well let me know when the Wright/Piper/Packer/Hodge/Edwards/Augustine Conference is going to be, and I'll be there.

Oh wait...that won't be till heaven. (Although, from some of what I've read, it seems there are at least a few evangelicals who question whether or not Wright will be in attendence at that one.)

I can't wait til you get to seminary and discover OTHER great theologians, particularly those starting with "P" for which you seem to have an affinity.
