The Puritan Board
Have benefited from this board a lot over the last few/several years but didn't actually join till a few weeks ago. Grateful to be here. I'm in the PCA and we're part of a small team serving in Bangladesh. One of the main things we get to do here is help to ground a local denomination in a Reformed/Covenantal understanding of the Scriptures; and I've been working on curriculum on...

My pastor said that Calvin had to compromise on some things, or he never would have had the voice he had.
After the worship service, my pastor and a couple buddies of ours were talking to my pastor about EP. He holds to EP, but we don't practice it. We sing from the Psalter, and we love it. We also sing hymns, and we love it. We also have one instrument, the guitar, and we love it.
