This is the last weekend for the "early bird" rates for the first ever White Horse Inn conference at sea, "Conversations for a Modern Reformation." Many of you have already registered or indicated that you planned to attend. In a few weeks we'll begin sending advance packets to those who have registered to help them get ready for the conversations that we hope will help lead to the transformation of the church.

Some of you have asked for more detail about the cruise schedule. So, here's an updated schedule with a few more details about the time that we'll spend together:

Sunday, January 29th
If you arrived on Saturday, be sure to worship in one of the local churches. Our good friend, Tullian Tchividjian, is the pastor of Coral Ridge PCA in Ft. Lauderdale. And, of course, Ken Jones (co-host of the WHI) is just down the road at Glendale Missionary Baptist Church in Miami.

After a day spent in worship and rest, we'll gather back at the hotel for a special White Horse Inn taping to help kick things off.

Monday, January 30th
Let's do breakfast before we head off to the port together. This will be a great opportunity to get to know some of the folks with whom you'll spend the next week. The WHI hosts and staff will also introduce themselves.

We'll leave together in buses arranged for transportation to the ship. We'll be some of the first guests on the ship. Get settled into your rooms, head to the pool, or stop off at one of the restaurants for lunch. The ship gets underway at 4:00 p.m. Be sure to stand at a railing and wave goodbye!

We'll eat dinner together around 6:00 p.m. and then gather together for a formal welcome reception.

Tuesday, January 31st
This is a full day at sea, nothing but ocean for miles around. It will also be our first full day together, engaged in that conversation that we  hope will make a difference in our lives and in our churches. We'll kick things off with a White Horse Inn live taping, a model of the kinds of conversations that we hope to have through the rest of the week.

Then, you'll become a cohost of a WHI conversation! We'll break up into groups to begin our discussion that will lead to theses for a modern reformation. You and several other conference guests will break away from other members of the group for a time of guided discussion that will help us identify the areas where we need to see reformation take place.

We'll have a working lunch with our group members and then go right back to a time of discussion: After having identified some of the big ideas, we'll begin breaking them down into workable theses that we'll consider together as a large group later on in the week.

We are on a cruise ship, however, so after an early afternoon spent at work, we'll spend the rest of the day enjoying the amenities of the cruise ship. About every ten minutes you'll need to remind yourself that it is January!

After dinner with one of the WHI hosts, we'll gather together one more time that night for a special presentation from Dr. Rod Rosenbladt, "What Drove Luther's Hammer?" We'll also have time for questions and answers, so don't rush off to bed!

Wednesday, February 1st
Today is a "port day," so enjoy the time in Falmouth and we'll see you back in time for dinner and our evening presentation: Dr. Kim Riddlebarger on "A Reformation Pilgrimage."

Thursday, February 2nd
Another port day. Enjoy Labadee and then gather together again for dinner and a presentation that night from the Rev. Ken Jones, "Reforming a Local Church: A Case Study."

Friday, February 3rd
We'll spend most of today together since we'll be at sea on our way back to Ft. Lauderdale. First up is another live taping of the White Horse Inn. The hosts will be interacting with the work you've already done on theses for a modern Reformation.

Then, we'll reconvene our small groups to get ready for an afternoon presentation on our theses. We don't want our time to be spent in wishful thinking. We want to consider together what might really happen if the theses that we are considering together was actually adopted by a church: what would change? why would it matter? These are the questions that we'll consider after lunch.

Again, we'll break early enough that we can enjoy our last full day on the ship. After dinner together, Dr. Mike Horton will wrap things up with the evening presentation, "For a Modern Reformation." Stick around for our farewell reception. Enjoy a few last moments on deck with the new friends you've made.

Saturday, February 4th
We're back to Ft. Lauderdale today. We'll disembark and head home. Our prayer is that the time we spent together will be refreshing and invigorating as you pursue and spread reformation in your lives and your circles of influence.

    Hi,

    This is perhaps more of an 'offline' query, but feel free to post it if you think others need the info, too.

    In this update you reference, "the hotel." Is there one we are supposed to be registering with? My husband and I have registered for the cruise conference (and are SO excited!) but we were unaware that there was a designated hotel being used the night before the cruise. Please let me know if there are any further arrangements we need to make regarding this, the busses, etc.

    Thank You!

    In Christ,

    Heather Miller

    Heather,

    Yes, more information is forthcoming from both Sovereign Cruises (the organizing company) and White Horse Inn. We're going to have several pre-events leading up to the cruise starting Saturday night. We're still nailing down the specifics, but we'll have more information available in a few weeks!

    Thanks for registering. I think it's going to be a great experience.

    Hi Eric,

    I wasn't sure where else to ask these two questions about the cruise. We're excited!

    1) The recent email sent out mentions flying into Miami? Is this correct or should we fly to Ft Lauderdale?

    2) What is the name of the hotel everyone is staying at beforehand? Is the cost covered in the cruise price or do we need to book separately?

    Thank You!

    Hi Heather,

    Yes, it will be best to fly into Miami. We're working on securing a hotel right now with free shuttle service to and from the airport. Once we know what it is, we'll help you book your room (it isn't covered by the cost of the cruise). Some people will be arriving early enough to attend the Saturday evening Horton/Olson conversation on Calvinism. Some people will arrive early enough to attend the live recording of the White Horse Inn on Sunday night. Once we secure the hotel, we'll send out another email giving everyone all the details they'll need.

    We're excited too! Looking forward to meeting you and all the others who are coming.

    Eric
