From Tuesday to Thursday I went to the Banner of Truth Conference in Leicester.
It was a good time when we were fed and watered extremely well, accommodated in super little student rooms, had lectures, sermons and talks that ranged from the gripping and useful to the not so gripping and not so useful, met friends old and new, and heard of those who were ill or indisposed.
At Banner they always give you a couple of free books, and this year it was two weighty tomes on the Heidelberg Catechism. I hesitated. Would we get them in our bags?
