Conclusion of Blog Conference (by Daniel Chew)

The blog conference has more or less be done in communion with The Holy Spirity, though we may not have agreed in all issues, i believe we have all been benefited by thinking through these topics altogether. Our goal is that we are a humble learner, and gracious writer, who listen other views. Discussing in a way that Grace shines through the Truth we were contending. After all, we are all into "Faith seeking understanding" with "understanding ending in Doxology" as the outcome of the exercise. Finally, thanks for all whom participate in this conference, we looking forward to more in the future.

In appreciation,
Jonah Tang
