Conference video now available

Well, this has taken me longer than I had hoped, but I have finally produced the video from the Reformation Conference sessions. If you missed a session, I hope this is a help to you. The video only shows my screen during the lecture.

I have not done a lot of editing on these videos, so if you notice a spot where I forgot to cut out a break time or something else extraneous, please post a comment and let me know.

I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to speak to you about the Reformation, and I hope that you have a blessed Christmas holiday time.

Recommended Reading

Some have asked if I had any recommendations for further reading on the Reformation period. There are many wonderful works available on the history of the Reformation, many more than I have been able to use. In what follows, I’ve given a few works that I would recommend as beginning reading. I hope that perhaps a few of these will be a help to you.

Conference Announcement

Hosted by Foundation Baptist Church, Calgary, AB
Dates: October 12–16, 2016

Nearly 500 years ago, the events of the Protestant Reformation upended the western world. Our pursuit of God today is greatly helped by the rediscoveries of the Reformers. Because our doctrine depends on the discoveries of faithful men and women in the past, we need to know our family history. Come to our Fall Conference on the Reformation for an encouraging and edifying look at what those turbulent times of the past mean for us today.

Sessions

The Wednesday session and the Sunday session will be held at the Braeside Community Centre (11024 Braeside Dr. SW). The Thursday, Friday, and Saturday sessions will meet at a church member’s home. Please call the church office for directions (403-251-5920).
