A few months ago I was shocked to receive an invitation to speak at John Piper’s National Conference, The Power of Words and the Wonder of God, at the end of September. Shocked for two reasons. First, that I was asked. Second, that it came on the last two days of my vacation with my family. I checked with my dear wife, as well as my friends, and everyone thought I should accept the invitation. Julie’s only request was that I fly back to the Outer Banks to drive home with the family on Sunday. I checked with John and he graciously accommodated my request. I’ll be speaking on the topic of “What Happens When We Sing?” Here’s the trailer for the conference.
Desiring God has posted a number of videos from the main speakers, including Sinclair Ferguson on “Being Judged for Our Words,” Mark Driscoll on “The Bible’s Use of Harsh Language,” Paul Tripp on “What Makes Bad Language Bad,” and Dan Taylor on “The Significance of Stories.” You can check out those and more here.
