One of our favorite Floridians and Presbyterians (not necessarily in that order) is Tullian Tchividjian, the pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church. You’ve heard him on the White Horse Inn and he’s recently featured an interview with Mike on Law and Gospel at his blog. We’re also excited to announce that we are partnering with him for the Liberate Conference in February 2012.
Here’s how Tullian describes it:
I wholeheartedly believe that the gospel of grace is way more drastic, way more offensive, way more liberating, way more shocking, and way more counterintuitive than any of us realize. There is nothing more radically unbalanced and drastically unsafe than grace. It has no “but”: it’s unconditional, uncontrollable, unpredictable, and undomesticated. It unsettles everything. There is a dangerous depth to the gospel that needs to be rediscovered and embraced…and that’s what the LIBERATE Conference is all about.
Beginning February 23-25, 2012 at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (and every year thereafter) the LIBERATE Conference will explore the depths and riches of God’s scandalous grace in the gospel. We want it to become a catalytic platform for serious thinking about “a more radical gospel.”
So, to help kick off our first annual LIBERATE Conference, I’ve asked some of my friends to join me–a group of unafraid gospel-addicts, steel-spined soldiers of grace: Michael Horton, Paul Tripp, Elyse Fitzpatrick, Scotty Smith, Darrin Patrick, David Zahl, Rod Rosenbladt, and Doug Sauder. Scott Anderson (Executive Director of Desiring God) will be emceeing and Mark Miller (Director of Music at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church) will be leading us in music.
In addition to their conference sessions, Mike and the other cohosts of the White Horse Inn will tape a live recording from the conference. This is a great opportunity for you to see the conversation that you normally just get to listen to.
Plan on joining us in February at Coral Ridge. You can register here.
