Every blog has a purpose. Mine is simply to address issues of biblical studies, theology, church history, pastoral ministry, and current events. I also present other items that I feel might be worthy to be shared (eg. book reviews, news items, conference listings, etc.). My hope is that whoever reads it might be edified and challenged in their thinking. I encourage discussion and debate in the comments so please feel free to interact! Ultimately, I seek to live my life in accordance to Philippians 2:12 which reads,
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling (ESV).
I found your blog in the comments to the John Stackhouse National Post article about Darwin’s birthday. I subscribed to your blog and look forward to following.
I’m from Ontario, now in Halifax for the summer, doing research on Darwin at the universities here, for a series I’m writing.
I met Dr. Haykin, glad to see what you are doing.
Best wishes from a fellow reformed Baptist,
ps what a mess the Baptists in Canada are!
Glad you found the blog Chuck! I also am glad you found my blog interesting. I’m a little behind right now (sort of out of pocket without high speed) but once we relocate to PA I will be back on the blogging scene!
Glad you also know Dr. H! He’s a great man. I’ll be seeing him at the Andrew Fuller Conference on Baptist Studies next week.
You’re in Halifax eh? I was interim pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Dartmouth in 2006. If you get a chance, head out there on a Sunday and say hello to my friend Bill Emberley. He is the pastor.
Yes, the Baptists in Canada have their issues but I’m still thankful to be one… well until my work visa comes in. :)
