Speaking in Roanoke 3/13/06

I will be speaking next Monday (3/13) at Plantation Road Baptist Church for the "Society for the Preservation of Baptist Principles and Heritage." The group title sounds pretty grandiose for what is essentially a small, bi-monthly Baptist Pastors' fellowship. My invitation came from Pastor Lloyd Sprinkle of Sprinkle Publications in Harrisonburg who is the group's program coordinator.
I will be doing one teaching presentation and one sermon:

1. Teaching: "John Piper's Baptism and Membership Proposal: A Neo-Landmark Response"
Abstract: John Piper's influential Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis recently undertook consideration of a change in its constitution that would eliminate believer's baptism as a requirement for church membership. I will offer an analysis and response to this proposal.
I will also be doing a version of this teaching as a paper at the Eastern Regional Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) on March 24, 2006 at Westminster Seminary (Philadelphia).
2. Preaching: "A Biblical Picture of Worship" Nehemiah 8:1-12.
Abstract: An exposition of five traits of Biblical worship as revealed in Nehemiah 8:1-12.

You can get on the Society's email list for upcoming meetings by contacting David Hardin at

I wish I could come. I have obligations to keep that day, but maybe they can record it for those of us who are less fortunate?
