Today I had the joy of preaching the annual Resurrection Sermon for a joint convocation of seminary and college students at Erskine College and Seminary in Due West, South Carolina. I spoke from 1 Corinthians 15 (click HERE for Erskine’s summary of the event). After a great fellowship and reception (complete with sweet ice tea, no unsweetened offerred), I enjoyed walking across the spacious lawn beneath the giant live oaks. This is simply one of the prettiest campuses I have been on.
It was also a joy seeing the Dean, Dr. R. J. Gore, once again. I think his book on Covenant Worship is a must read on the subject on the matter of the regulative principle in worship. Along with a great faculty, including Mark Ross and Hughes Oliphant Old and others, Erskine is doing a great job of preparing future leaders for the Church of our Lord grounded in classical Reformed theology combined with a love for the lost. It was a great atmosphere to be around and a great day all around.
