Heading for Long Island!

To all our friends in the Northeast, I am headed for Long Island next week.  I will be at Shiloh Baptist Church, where my friend Herman Washington is the pastor.  The address is:

96 N Centre Ave
Rockville Centre, NY
11570

I will be teaching Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night (July 18-20) on the topics:

Why We Trust the Bible
The Word on the Word
The Proof of the Resurrection

And the week following, I’ll be in Chattanooga at the Sovereign Grace Bible Conference.  Greater New Home Baptist Church is our host church, once again.  And, I am slated to preach Wednesday morning.

So, feel free to come by and say hello!  It’s always good to meet friends and fellow travelers while we’re out there on the road.

The “Solas” of the Reformation

Last week I had the distinct pleasure of being at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Terrell, TX. with some of my favorite preachers and friends, for the 2017 gathering of the Texas chapter of the Sovereign Grace Bible Conference.    Roger Skepple and I taught on the “Solas” that lay at the heart of the Protestant Reformation.  I always enjoy teaching with Roger. He’s a good exegete and we compliment each other quite well.  I came home with the audio of those messages and want to share it with you all.

Roger Skepple – Sola Christus (Christ Alone)

Jim McClarty – Sola Gratia (Grace Alone)

Roger Skepple – Sola Fide (Faith Alone)

Jim McClarty – Soli Deo Gloria (God’s Glory Alone)

Summer Travel

The Summer travel season is about to begin for me.  It kicks off with a trip to Texas.  The itinerary and all the necessary into can be found in the following pdf.  I do enjoy getting out and seeing the saints around the country.  And, as long as God gives me breath (and the occasional travel companion), I’ll keep doing it.

Here’s the info for the 8th Annual Sovereign Grace Conference in Texas next month:

Homecoming 2017

Well, I think it’s safe to say that a mighty fine time was had by all the folk who joined us last weekend.  Good messages, good fellowship, good food, and good company.  What more can you ask?  As of today, it sounds like everyone got home safely (aside from those who chose to hang around Smyrna for a few days).  So, I’m very grateful.

Here are the audio files, all in one place, from this weekend’s gathering … along with a special file of music from both our Saturday and Sunday services.  Plus, I’ve included a pdf of my notes, since I didn’t quite make through them all.  So, enjoy.  Listen.  Sing along.  And hopefully the joy that we all felt will transfer via these audio files.

Here is Tom’s Saturday message.

Here is Alex’s Saturday message.

Here is our Sunday morning communion message.

Here is the song and music file.

And here are my notes.

The Sovereignty of God at ETT 2017

I was privileged to be at the Embracing the Truth Conference 2017 last week.  I taught for three mornings.  God was good.  My health held out, my voice didn’t wain too much, and I got to see friends and brothers who I only get to visit with a couple times a year.  So, all in all, a mighty good week.

In the weeks to come, the other messages from the conference will be posted on the conference website: sovereigngracebibleconference.org

In the meantime, here are my three presentations.  The third day, the ear-mounted microphone gave me some trouble.  That’s the cause for the various clicks and pops.  But, I think the audio is still quite listenable.

Embracing the Truth 2017

January is nearly in the history books.  Time’s flying.  And it’s nearly conference season.  If I do go everywhere I’ve agreed to go, I will travel more this year than in most recent years … if the Lord wills.

The first conference I’ll be attending in 2017 is the Embracing The Truth gathering in Gladeville, TN.  March 7-10.  I love this conference, for more reasons than one.  Great fellowship, great food, great preaching, and it’s close enough to home that I get to sleep in my own bed.  So, here are the details … the announcement poster and the schedule of speakers.  If you’re anywhere in the Middle Tennessee area, make sure to plan some time at ETT 2017.
