Event Details

Sabbath in the City:
The Fourth Commandment In Contemporary Spiritual Formation

A Festival of Preaching and Conference
Sponsored by the Lord’s Day Alliance of the U.S.
in association with the Academy of Preachers &
Beeson Divinity School at Samford University

Birmingham, Alabama – October 1-2, 2012

Please join us for a two-day conference featuring preaching from young preachers recruited by Beeson Divinity School and the Academy of Preachers. Plenary sessions will be led by Dr. C. David Keith from Mercer University; Rev. Dr. Robert Smith from Beeson Divinity School; and, Rev. Frank Woodson from Mission Birmingham.

The prophet Isaiah reminds us: “For thus said the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” Isaiah 30:15 (NRSV)

Preaching titles and texts—and conference plenary sessions—will consider our wired and urban by seeking to address two questions:

  1. How do we understand Sabbath or Sunday in this environment?
  2. How does the Fourth Commandment, the Sabbath or Sunday mandate serve to promote contemporary personal and corporate spiritual formation?

The conference will feature three hosted meals: Monday and Tuesday lunches, and a banquet on Monday evening. The cost for registration, meals, and materials is $29; $15 for students. Tickets are non-refundable.

Hotel accommodations are available at the Courtyard by Marriott-Birmingham/Homewood. For additional information about securing a reservation at the hotel, please contact Sharon Vandergriff at info@ldausa.org or by calling (404) 693-5530.
