Free audio is up from two recent conferences and one conference which is underway as I write.

The second audio set comes from the NEXT Conference.  This conference is about transfering the gospel to the next generation.  Speakers include Josh Harris, Kevin DeYoung, Sinclair Ferguson, D.A. Carson, C.J Mahaney and more.

Piper on visiting another church

Piper writes about his recent visit to a mainline protestant church…

  • A magnificent building.
  • A magnificent choir singing, “Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of he world, have mercy on us” (in Latin).
  • A closing hymn, “Lord, I want to be a Christian.”
  • Three women pastors on the platform and two men.
  • Pews filled with well-to-do looking folks.

What made my visit heart-wrenching was that the children’s choir sang these words—trust me, I am copying them from the bulletin—“Birds and trees, people and plants, dolphin and whale all lives are equal. . . . Sister Rain, Brother Stone bring us back to our true home.”

So when I stand at my study window that looks out over the downtown cityscape of Minneapolis, I pray: “O God, have mercy on us. Send a shocking revival to the churches—and a great awakening to this city. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.”
