"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Conference on Adoption in Portland, OR

    Dear friends,

    The Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology, which is being held in the Portland area this year is just around the corner. It begins three weeks from today to be exact. For one, I am excited about the caliber of preachers that will be addressing the subject of "Adoption" this year. We will be joined by Dr. Steve Lawson, Dr. Joel Beeke, Rev. Al Martin, and Rev. Richard Phillips. Registration is still open and I would be excited to see each of you there.

    The conference is being held at the Estacada Christian Church on February 25 and 26 with the conference concluding with the Lord's Day worship on February 27. If you would like more information or would like to register log on to the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals website: and register. Of course, if you have any questions I invite you to send me an email or contact me at 503-522-0340.

    In Christ,

    David Thommen
