I am just back home from the national conference of FIRE: Fellowship of Independent Reformed Evangelicals, which was held this year in Hudsonville, Michigan, near Grand Rapids. What a delight to be there for the day and a half I was there. The host church, Grace Community Church, Hudsonville, did a superb job of hosting the event. Thank you, Pastor Krogh, and you, the brothers and sisters of this church! The conference concluded this evening, but I had to leave after breakfast and missed hearing Jason Deutsch and Jim Newheiser. It was a joy to hear, though, Erroll Hulse on Monday evening and Jim Grier last night. Last night was especially precious as Dr Grier expounded Isaiah 6. An anointed word!
It was also a delight to make the re-acquaintance of some dear friends and meet new ones. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the sweet communion of his people! May the Lord bless this fellowship of churches richly—what a joy to be a part of it.
