A massive but possibly unnoticed evening

Last night held the possibility of being a pivotal night in the life of Southern Baptists.  And yet, I believe it is fair to say that a vast majority were unaware.  Over the past year, there has been a call for a Great Commission Resurgence in the Southern Baptist Convention.  Questions about the place, structure, and roles of state and national structures within the convention were raised and not a few feathers were ruffled.  Yet the dialogue seems to have been healthy and though there are detractors, these questions in my opinion will only serve to strengthen our churches as they seek to honor Christ and reach the nations for His fame.  The Great Commission Resurgence Task Force met last night to share their progress and recommendations to the Executive Committee of the SBC.  If you are interested in what they reported, you can find the video here and the written transcript here.

Wherever you stand and whatever your feelings may be, let us join together praying that Christ will be exalted, unity will be embraced, and that others will know Christ.

"I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. For your steadfast love is great to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!" Psalms 57:9-11
