Out of the Past Into the Future Conference Review

A weekend conference recently took place at Chalcedon Presbyterian Church (RPCUS) located in Cumming, GA called Out of the Past, Into the Future. The featured speakers were Rev. Steve Wilkins pastor of Auburn Avenue Presbyterian Church in Monroe, LA and Rev. Joe Morecraft, III pastor of the host church. The overall theme of the conference was "how understanding our past as a nation affects our future." Its focus was on the American War of Independence and the War Between the States. The lecturers sought to enlighten the listeners in areas of American history that have been incorrectly portrayed by our public institutions for the past hundred years or more. Racism was also condemned.

The conference was well attended, with a large number of teens and young adults. Many of the attendees were from bordering counties and states with a majority of families coming from a home school background.
