Today I’m heading to Charleston, SC to attend a special gathering of Baptist historians called the Baptist History Celebration. This conference will commemorate the founding of the first Baptist association 300 years ago. The Philadelphia Baptist Association was founded in 1707. The meeting will be held at the First Baptist Church of Charleston, SC which is the oldest Baptist church in the south.

I will be describing the devotional material found in the books written in prison by Hercules Collins.
