Baptist Spirituality Conference Audio

The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies hosted the conference Baptist Spirituality: Historical Perspectives on August 24-25, 2009. Some of you might find this conference interesting and helpful. I did not want it to fall off the radar.

Most of the audio is up. You can check the direct link for further updates. My pastor even presented though the audio for his session is not up yet.

The Yarnell-Haykin dialogue was particularly interesting as was Kevin Smith’s presentation on African-American Baptists.
