A few weeks ago, I wrote about the dire situation in the SBC with younger leaders looking for a place to participate and many more looking for the exit. I am more excited to attend this year than in many previous years combined (and I sense others are too) because this year might be a turning point for what has become a poorly-branded, pseudo-political organization of late. The Great Commission Resurgence must receive the lion's share of credit for renewed interest in this year's annual meeting.
I was quoted in two well-written articles on the upcoming meeting, and I wanted to link to them both:
- Louisville Courier-Journal: "Convention Growing Grayer"
- Associated Press: "Southern Baptists to Gather in Kentucky"
If you are interested in these sort of things, please leave a comment. I'd love to hear your thoughts. If not, I promise to return to regularly scheduled programming very soon.
