To: The Staff of the White Horse Inn and Modern Reformation
I grew up in and was catechized in a CRC/URC congregation and attended a Christian school from kindergarten through high school. I have been steeped in the Reformed tradition from my youth and I thank the Lord immensely for that. Even at a Reformed college I was presented with differing views and opinions to which I needed to respond. If there was something I could not give an answer to, my father was a phone-call or an e-mail away. Leaving college to go into the real world presented to me world-views and beliefs I had never been exposed to and more questions and situations were thrown at me. Just over a year after leaving college, my father, my "answer man," died. When situations arose, I was left to fend for myself and needed to find the resources to help me. I was leery of searching the Internet for help, but cautiously I did just that. I ran across articles from Modern Reformation magazine which included some written by Dr. Godfrey, Dr. Horton and Dr. Baugh, who I knew were professors at Westminster Seminary California. Therefore, I felt confident that I could trust those resources to help me deepen my understanding of the Reformed faith.
Since that time I found The White Horse Inn, which I listen to every week. Also, I currently subscribe to Modern Reformation. Those two resources alone have been very valuable in providing my friends and me the ability to dive into the Reformed faith and make it into something that we cherish and not just something we learned in catechism.
By studying God's Word with the help of Modern Reformation, and The White Horse Inn I have been able to make the Reformed tradition alive in my life.
