  • “And Now, the Star of the Show . . .”
    “And Now, the Star of the Show . . .” by Mark Galli is a worthy reminder to us pastors and preachers to make sure we’re not the center of attention or trying to steal the show from the Lord.
  • “Aspire to Live Quietly”
    Aspire to Live Quietly,” a helpful article by Davis Wetherell, discusses the implications of living peacefully (1 Thess. 4:11).

WARBC FOCUSES ON THE LORD’S SUPPER
“Reclaiming the Orphaned Ordinance: A Study of the Lord’s Supper” will be the topic of the WARBC annual meeting, Oct. 6–7, hosted by First Baptist Church, Kiel, Wisconsin. A synopsis of the topic states, “The Lord’s supper is often observed with little explanation other than that it is a reminder of Jesus’ death. But the Lord’s supper is much more than just a mnemonic device to help us remember Jesus’ death. The Lord’s Supper is a beautiful gift to the church from Jesus Christ. For over two thousand years, God’s people have regularly gathered around a table to enjoy a simple meal in obedience to Jesus. The symbolism found at the Lord’s Table is rich and robust.”

NARBC CONFERENCE: SHAPED FOR SERVICE
An exposition of the book of Titus will enrich conferees attending the Nebraska Association of Regular Baptist Churches Conference, Sept. 27–28, at Park Lane Baptist Church, Omaha, Nebraska. Scheduled speakers are Pastors Keith Hunt, Peter Jenks, Shawn Rittmiller, and Bob Sauser. For more information, see the NARBC bulletin insert.
