Doctrine Dudes! This Thursday Morning!

Dudes.

You don’t want to miss this Thursday.

It will be very, very special.

Trust me.

My dear friend, Rev. David Cassidy, Pastor of Redeemer PCA in Austin, TX, will be our guest speaker.  David will bring a lecture, entitled The Reading Life of the Pastor.  He will draw on his vast love of theological books to discuss with us the crucial role of reading for spiritual growth, pastoral effectiveness, and homiletical development (by the way – great job this past Sunday morning by our own Josh Floyd at the sunrise Easter service).  I know this is a matter dear to all our hearts in Doctrine Dudes.  One of these days, we will have a book acquisition training seminar led by Elder Buz Graham.  In the meantime, you may wish to re-read a post from a few weeks ago, here at TLR:

And, given the wonderful theology conference we are having this weekend with Westminster Theological Seminary, our Doctrine Dudes gathering will serve as a nice appetizer for a fuller feast.

David will talk with us from his own experience about the importance of reading broadly, from commentaries, to classic theological books, devotional reading, biography, and beyond.

We will meet this Thursday morning, 8:30-10:00am, in Cafe 2323 (the CPC entrance under the portico).  The amazing Chef George Brantly will whip up his breakfast magic (sausage, gravy, eggs, biscuits, etc.).  A $5 donation will be greatly appreciated.  Please, rsvp by tomorrow afternoon, so we will know how much food to prepare.

Also, for this extra special DD gathering, you will each receive a free book gift:

This is also a special gathering of Doctrine Dudes, as our own Casey Cramer will be soon leaving for Covenant Seminary.  So, this will be one of our last few DD gatherings with him.  I sense a DD send-off party on the horizon for Casey.

I can’t wait to see y’all this Thursday morning!  We will also discuss ways in which y’all can help with this weekend’s Full Confidence conference.  Also, be on the lookout for TLR posts on reading theological books, as a way of whetting your appetite for David’s talk on Thursday morning.
