The following is the announcement from Anthony Buzzard about the upcoming Theological Conference:

We would like to invite you to our 20th anniversary Theological Conference May 12-15th, 2011. This annual conference at Simpsonwood Retreat Center promises to be an outstanding gathering of lovers of the Abrahamic faith and the Kingdom Gospel of Jesus, the Messiah. We are delighted to report that we will have a number of visitors and speakers from overseas — Australia, Germany, South Africa and England. The word of the Kingdom and the creed of Jesus are making an impact on a daily and ever-growing scale, thanks to books going out, in several languages, weekly at Amazon, and the astonishing power of the many websites now making the faith known to a potential of some 2 billion people. The increase in getting the message out is a constant source of joy. What a marvel is this amazing Internet.

Do take the time to spend these few days and encourage especially those who are new to the Abrahamic circle. Robin Todd will be with us to keep us posted of the fruit borne by his fine efforts to unite scattered believers. Small home fellowships are beginning to emerge, with a Restorationist flavor, as they recapture the vision of the Kingdom of God Gospel of Jesus and the ancient unitarian heritage which Jesus proclaimed as the “greatest of all the commandments.”

There is a worldwide dearth of hearing the Gospel as Jesus defined it and preached it. It is about the coming Kingdom, and its impact when fully embraced and made the center of our efforts (cp. Luke 4:43) still transforms lives and energizes. Paul described the Gospel as “the word which is energetic and active in you” (1 Thess. 2:13).

You will enjoy meeting familiar conference participants, and you will meet new family in the faith. How important it is not to “forsake gathering together.” We are responsible to each other not to sit on “islands” and operate as soloists. We must not forget that Christianity is to be done corporately. We will all learn much from what we hear and experience at the Conference. Please do not underestimate the joy you bring to others by attending. We will also celebrate the 20th anniversary with a special communion service.

To register please call Atlanta Bible College at 800-347-4261 or 678-833-1839 or print and mail the form below by April 18. The non-refundable deposit is $50 per individual or couple. See details at our website www.restorationfellowship.org
Registration deadline: April 18

    Sean,

    Thanks for posting. Actually you beat me to it as I was going to post a notification about the conference as well.

    Are you going to be able to attend this year? It would be great if you could!

    Angela and her husband Tony have said that are going again this year. And I will be there too. In fact, Anthony asked me if I could be a speaker this year. Nothing like the pressure of not only having to write a good paper, but also present it live there in front of everyone! Yikes!! 🙂

    I encourage everyone reading this to come to the conference if you can! It is really a great experience being able to participate in such an event. Not only is it great to see the presentations first hand, but being able to talk and fellowship with everyone (speakers and attendees alike) is such a rewarding and enriching occasion.

    Hope to see you all there in Atlanta in May!

    FYI: Anthony is currently in Indonesia, for anyone interested here is an update…

    He is 3 hours from Penang now, having moved yet again to an unspellable location. He speaks of an incredible situation there where perhaps 12 out of the 50 missionaries he is speaking to are in the “in” group, understanding the one God and 1 or 2 Werners (i.e. totally dedicated to getting this message out) among them. The rest don’t even know and he was told at one point to cover the title of his books.

    Some Muslims are in the know but continue to dress in Muslim dress etc. to avoid being shot. There is an amazing lady there whose husband is an adjunct professor at Fuller and she has for the last 10 years thought and said that this trinity must be gotten rid of.

    All of these missionaries are in the most precarious of situations, (as well as the Muslims they reach out to). They only get together 2x a year so the one God message has not made its way through the group, nor has the KOG which, as you can well imagine, Anthony is working hard on!

    Anthony is feeling the power of prayer as he arrived at this last place at 2:30 am and had to speak to a small group early that morning. It is grueling and yet rewarding at the same time, a real undercover operation, apparently.

    Your prayers that he can reach a few more of those 50 are coveted!

    Xavier,
    Thank-you for the update. I will certainly pray for Anthony to have a successful “and safe” mission. I thank God for all the people in the world that have unselfishly dedicated their lives to “His” service…
