The Power of Words and the Wonder of God (Compilation)

Update: Abraham just posted the links to all the video from the sessions of the conference.

With great interest, I have been following the live-blogging and commentary from the 2009 Desiring God National Conference whose theme is “The Power of God and the Wonder of God.”  I thought I provide all the links in one place for your (and my!) benefit.  The links are to Desiring God’s pages which provide audio, video, and notes.  The “DG Blog” are notes from the Desiring God blog.  Also, you ought to check out true live-blogging as shown by Mike Anderson of The Resurgence blog.

1.  “The Tongue, the Bridle, and the Blessing: An Exposition of James 3:1-12” by Sinclair Ferguson (DG blog)
2.  Friday Panel Discussion (Driscoll, Ferguson, Piper) (DG blog)
3.  “Words of Wonder: What Happens When We Sing?” by Bob Kauflin (DG blog)
4.  “How Sharp the Edge: Christ, Controversy, and Cutting Words” by Mark Driscoll (DG blog)
5. “The Life-Shaping Power of Story: God’s and Ours” by Daniel Taylor (DG blog)
6.  Saturday Panel Discussion (Kauflin, Piper, Taylor, Tripp) (DG blog)
7.  “War of Words: Getting to the Heart for God’s Sake” by Paul Tripp (DG blog)
8.  “Is There Christian Eloquence? Clear Words and the Wonder of the Cross” by John Piper (DG blog)

Here’s a clip from Ferguson’s message referring to being careless with the tongue.  Very convicting.

On a lighter note, for those who have been around Piper knows he usually wears the same plaid coat, so I thought this was pretty funny.  🙂

You can find all the pre-conference videos from the conference speakers by going here.
