    Right now, we will be meeting in our homes (Bob's and Mine), but if it turns out we have more people attending, then we'll go out and rent a meeting room somewhere.

    We will have a schedule of events later. As of right now, we will have several MODERATED conversations. They will be videotaped, and they will be made available to the public for download!!!

    I will be sending an announcement on the blog soon. This is going to be a very exciting meeting in my opinion! The meeting will focus on High Grace Predestinarian Theology and its many distinctions.
    Brandan , will you be able to give hotels rates in the area? I would have to ask Nanda and see if she would like to go. I have never been to Kentucky before.

    Ray, I'll see if I can get hotel rates.... I don't know how that works, but I'll look into it! BTW, we're in Missouri.

    LOL, for the love of donuts.

    I hope you bring Doc with. Luther would be proud

    Hopefully by the end of April, things at the store will have picked up enough to take leave for a week. It will be our 10th wedding anniversary come August the 24th and Nanda wanted to go somewhere. Our 4 children will have to be looked after as well( grandparents)

    We shall see what the Lord wills in the coming months.

    It would be grand to see you folks and worship with you.

    HAHA! It has been on my mind even before Brandan knighted me. I am pondering combining a trip to see my family in Kansas City with a jaunt over to St. Louis. My wife's mother has lung cancer, and she's caring for her, so it may be a little touchy (especially as time progresses) - so I am unable to commit right now.

    I think we would enjoy it very much though and I'll try to work out the details. We will see what the Lord has in store
    Gal 6:14 But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

    Re: The Predestinarian Network First Annual Conference

    This sounds like something that would be worth taking some vacation for Lord willing, put me and Lori (my wife) on the "considering" part of the list at this point, there are some adjustments that would have to "be" in place, so Brandan you could consider this a prayer request of sorts too!

    Re: The Predestinarian Network First Annual Conference

    My wife and I may attend. I lived in east st louis back in 1979, I attended a bible college there called IBBC International baptist bible college. This of course was a arminian school and I was expelled because of my belief in election (acts 13:48) was my favorite quote. The leaders of the school forbade me to speak this truth to the other students and they tried to make me believe that those who" believed were disposed to eternal life" I never accepted that interpretation... But I trust that my trip to st. louie will be different if God permits the trip... So let me know about some feasible motels in the area...

    I have a big house so I can host a limited number of 'friends of the forum' as well as some others who can't afford hotel accomodations. Assuming, of course, that you are not picky about where you sleep (bring your cots, pads, and air mattreses--I have a few but not many!).

    I should tell you that Nanda has expressed interest and we have looked into a few things. It would take about 12 hours to get to you. We would probably break it up into 2 days of travel.

    Also, we would need to know the address where we would meet so that from here we could book a motel.

    Also , what will take place on Thursday through to Sunday.

    .....all this Lord willing
