In light of the upcoming Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting in San Antonio, I would like to provide a few links to summarize issues that are likely to be raised at this meeting. I do this both as a service to the messengers attending and as a resource for those interested, but unable to attend. I’m assuming that a live video feed of the Pastor’s Conference and Annual Meeting will be provided this year as it has in the past. Whenever those links come available I will provide access to them in another post.
Here are a few links to get you up to speed on what is likely to happen near the Alamo early next week:
- Baptist Press’ 2007 Annual Meeting Preview – This is a collection of stories previewing this year’s convention
- Coverage of the 2007 Convention from the Florida Baptist Witness
- An article by the “moderate” Associated Baptist Press which provides a good summary of the upcoming meeting
Baptist Press has announced the launch of a blog that will provide instant news of the events of the 2007 SBC. Here are a few blogs that promise to be active next week providing an interesting perspective on the events of the convention as they happen:
First, those with whom I mostly agree:
Now, for those with whom I mostly disagree:
I guess I just “outed” myself on which side of the issues that I’m on, but this is where I am personally. I am sympathetic with some of the concerns of those with whom I disagree and we may find ourselves united on a few issues, but I believe there is too much at stake to allow us to move beyond the Conservative Resurgence. I am a Southern Baptist, only because the Resurgence happened. I will not be a Southern Baptist, if the effects of the Battle for the Bible are annulled.
The following article by Dr. Albert Mohler in the most recent issue of WORLD Magazine states the importance of remembering the battles of the past in an article titled: “Remember the Alamo”. Excellent stuff!
