Southeast Regional Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society

Yesterday, my dad and I made our way on a 5 hour trek across Florida to the Baptist Conference Center in Marianna in order to attend the 2007 Southeast Regional meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society. Dr. Ken Matthews was the scheduled plenary speaker on the topic of “In the Beginning . . .” I presented a paper on the topic: “Use or Influence? Calvin and the Cappadocians.” I will post a link to this paper in the near future.

On the way over dad and I were privileged to have lunch with fellow pastor and blogger Gordon Cloud. We met Gordon and his two sons, Clay and Glen, at a Shoney’s in Tallahassee. We had a great time of fellowship with these men. Thanks for taking the time to meet with us, Gordon!

Wayne Cornett looking important and scholarly

Upon arriving at the conference site, I was able to meet up with several friends. I saw Dr. David Sills, Missions professor at SBTS; Michael Wren, PhD candidate at SBTS; Rob Arnold (and his wife), PhD candidate at SBTS; Wayne Cornett, PhD candidate at Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary. It was also great to see Brad Hughes, graduate of SBTS, former candidate for U.S. Congress, and most importantly, friend of Timmy Brister. He drove an hour and a half just to hear my paper! What a guy!

I was also privileged to meet many more interesting people and I look forward to profiting intellectually and spiritually from these new friendships in the years ahead.
