D. A. Carson to be keynote speaker at Desiring God Pastors Conference

From the Desiring God blog ...

Don Carson has accepted John Piper's invitation to be the keynote speaker for the 2008 Desiring God Conference for Pastors, February 4-6, in Minneapolis. The tentative theme is “The Pastor as Father and Son.” Carson will address fatherhood and sonship in the Trinity, in the family, and in the church. Both Pastor Piper and Dr. Carson will speak about the significant and lasting effects of their own fathers in their lives--Carson during his keynote addresses and Piper in his biographical lecture. Pastors will be encouraged to bring both their sons and their fathers. The pastoral and missions speakers are pending.

In addition, the venue for the conference has changed. Instead of meeting in the hotel (as we have done for the past five years), the 2008 conference will move to the Minneapolis Convention Center. Those who have attended our National Conferences will be familiar with this spacious, comfortable, and functional facility.

Please pray with us that God will bless all the preparations for this event.

If you've never been, these are great conferences and Carson will be really good bull ... as is the topic.

I'll be there. Let's get some trips planned to White Castle!

I always wait patiently for Piper's Biographical talk to be posted online. I wonder who he will tackle in 2008!

His bit on Spurgeon was classic!
