I'm kind of excited! The Shepherd's Conference has been going on at Grace Community Church all week- my former church, which is about 30 minutes away from our house. About 500 pastors all gather there for fellowship and hearing the word. (Plus, getting free books!) My dad didn't go this year, as he thought to register too late, however, we will be going tonight for an alumni dinner. (My dad is a graduate of The Master's Seminary.)
So why am I excited? Well, CJ Mahaney, John MacArthur, Al Molher, R.C. Sproul (?), and a bunch of other gifted men are there. (Dr. John Piper was going to come, but with the death of his father, was not able too.) I really, really, really, really want to meet CJ Mahaney! I don't want to fall into the trap of beholding only the glory of man, but I have read many of Mr. Mahaney's books, and am an avid reader of Girl Talk. (His wifes blog.)
And, they have a lot of books for sale in a special book store right now, so I hope to add to my librarey. We leave in a few hours, yay!
