Thanks to everyone who attended last night's TTS Foundations session! We were continuing our study of the doctrine of God - looking at his personality (his goodness, kindness, love, etc.), his sovereignty (his government and wisdom), as well as his attributes (his greatness and majesty).
Ultimately, all we can do is say with the Psalmist:
"I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together!" [Ps 34:1-3]
We can't be cajoled or compelled - we must each see this for ourselves. God loves us, and pours out his kindness upon us, but he's also majestic in splendour. He is forever old, and forever new; all-wise, all-powerful, all-knowing. What a God we worship!

After needing to postpone our last Foundations session, we met yesterday for two sessions distilled into one! Our subject was Scripture - how ought we to approach it? How ought we to receive it? How ought we to use it?
We only covered the first of those questions. What is the nature of Scripture? What does it mean for it be necessary, authoritative, perspicuous, and sufficient? What does sola Scriptura mean, and what is God's heart in revealing himself at all?
We landed on a few major themes.
