G3 Conference second impressions

By Elizabeth Prata

Day 2 of attending the G3 Conference in Atlanta is over and in the books. It’s an aggressive schedule, with sessions back to back, and hymns in between, few breaks. Be ready to drink spiritual nourishment from a fire hose.

I missed out on the Breakout sessions because by the time we arrived the rooms were standing room only. All seats taken. That’s OK, I visited with a long-lost friend for the time.

The preaching was superlative. These men are the best of the best in American Reformed circles. Though all the sermons were great, I especially connected today with Joel Beeke’s “Puritan View of Worship”. Paul Washer’s “Foundations of Worship” was one of the best sermons I EVER HEARD. I was not the only person to think so, there was a holy hush from the stunned audience afterward.

I enjoyed talking with all the people I spoke with, hobnobbing about the issues of the day impacting our faith or our denomination, and speaking of God’s glories as exalted through the preaching we’d heard and the music we sang here. The G3 Conference is one of the best events I ever attended.

Some photos of the day:

The beaten copper coffee urns stations along the main hallway were beautiful

So. Many. Books.

More books!

Though the books seen below were for sale, the Conference organizers stationed kiosks of free books for us to take. I came away with 5 free books!
