“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.” [Ezekiel 33:6]

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”  [Ephesians 6:12]

[2] Dwindling Congregation of the Johnstown, Pennsylvania Hungarian Reformed Church No Longer Able to Pay Township Cemetery Maintenance Fee

A 27 November 2013 The Tribune-Democrat editorial titled “A Matter of Grave Interest | Should Township Take Control of Cemetery?” reports that the Hungarian Reformed Church on Chestnut Street in the Cambria City section of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, has only fourteen congregants attending the twice monthly services, and the church is no longer able to pay the US$400 annual cost to maintain its cemetery in Richland Township.

The church’s pastor the Rev. Albert Kovacs (Calvin Synod) explains that the church is having financial difficulties and is unable even to adequately maintain the church building. He has asked the Richland Township supervisors to take over maintenance of the cemetery.

The Tribune-Democrat editorial does not think it appropriate that the township taxpayers pay the cemetery maintenance costs, and instead asks for any willing volunteers to agree to maintain the cemetery that is such an important part of the historical record of the region.

[Editor’s Note: If there are no volunteers to continue maintaining the cemetery, perhaps someone in the Calvin Synod community familiar with the social network fundraising tool GoFundMe can set up a possible means of meeting the cemetery maintenance costs.]

[3] Fourteenth Annual Reformed Congregational Fellowship Conference Scheduled for 25-27 March 2014 at the Wonderland Conference Center in Sharon, Massachusetts

The Fourteenth Annual Reformed Congregational Fellowship Conference is scheduled for 25-27 March 2013 at the Wonderland Conference Center in Sharon, Massachusetts.

The annual Reformed Congregational Fellowship conferences are born out of the conviction that creeds and confessions are vital to the fundamental health and security of the church. The upcoming conference will be engaging chapter 20 of the Savoy Confession, a thought provoking consideration of the Gospel and how, and to what extent, God’s grace makes it effectual for the conversion and salvation of sinners.

[5] The Reformed Apprentice Volume 2: A Workbook on the Doctrine of Scripture and Biblical Interpretation Available from The Puritan Shop

The Puritan Shop is now offering The Reformed Apprentice Volume 2: A Workbook on the Doctrine of Scripture and Biblical Interpretation by C. Matthew McMahon in electronic form for US$9.99 and in printed form for US$21.99 plus shipping.

C. Matthew McMahon is a Reformed theologian, adjunct professor at Whitefield Theological Seminary, and founder and chairman of A Puritan’s Mind.

This is the 2nd volume in the workbook series, teaching Reformed Theology in a simple but interactive manner. It covers the Doctrine of Scripture and the science of hermeneutics. The main purpose of the workbook is to come into a deeper knowledge and relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ as he has revealed himself to the church in his Word and by his Spirit through the centuries in Reformed Theology. The workbook quotes the early church fathers, the Reformers, the Puritans, and Reformed theologians in order to aid the Apprentice in understanding how the Bible is God’s Word, and how to interpret it both exegetically and practically.

There is nothing like this series of interactive workbooks anywhere in the Reformed community. It was created to engage the student of Scripture to be apprenticed under the teachers of Reformed Theology as a Reformed Apprentice.
