There are some powerful music and messages coming out of Moody Bible Institute’s Founder’s Week. If you’re interested, you can listen online or find a broadcasting station at www.foundersweek.com. Sessions will continue through Friday. The theme verse is I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord (Philippians 3:8).
Founder’s Week is a week-long event at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and features preaching from a variety of Christian teachers, pastors and musicians. The story goes that the founder of Moody Bible Institute, D. L. Moody (1837-1899), once walked into a classroom and announced: “It’s my birthday. Classes are canceled. Let’s go for a sled ride!” February 5th has been special to Moody Bible Institute ever since, although some wish the school’s founder could have been born during a warmer season!
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer (Acts 2:42).
