The Mid Atlantic Reformation Society (MARS) presented the first of its 2010 lecture series this Tuesday in the meeting room of the Old Country Buffet in Wyomissing, PA. Joel Saint presented answers to a question at the heart of the purpose of MARS: “Why a Christian Worldview?”. The audience of 28 learned through the example of Alfred the Great, a great English king in the 9th century, the great effect of Biblical principles applied to culture and politics. The encouraging question and answer session that followed revealed an understanding of the issues involved on the part of the audience, as well as a desire to put actions to beliefs (James 2:20). Most of the answers given by Mr. Saint included the phrase “we’ll go into that more in upcoming months”, an indication that MARS has a comprehensive set of presentations in store.
As a side benefit, attendees dined on the buffet including a wide assortment of meats, fish, poultry and vegetables, as well as a salad bar and other items. It was all an encouraging start to future monthly meetings planned for the third Tuesday of every month.
