Follow-up to “A Modest Proposal for Baptist Associations”

A few weeks ago I shared “A Modest Proposal for Baptist Associations.” I sought to do two things. First, I wanted to affirm the importance of associations in Southern Baptist life. We often spend so much time thinking about national or state work, we neglect the work in our own backyards—associations have typically filled that […]

“I Can’t Be As Good As God.”

“the gospel is only good news if it gets there on time.” -Carl C. F. Henry I was with a friend. We just finished breakfast and ordered an Uber for the airport. Our driver, smiling ear to ear was interesting, fun and creative. He had what I would consider Chicago style blues playing in his […]

Introducing #OneforSeven

What difference can one dollar make? Well, one dollar a week from each active Southern Baptist could double the number of IMB missionaries on the field.

Without a doubt, yesterday was a heavy day for Southern Baptists and for the International Mission Board (IMB). IMB President, Dr. David Platt announced that he has asked IMB Trustees to begin a search […]

They’re certainly not big steps. But a quick look at every survey examining “causes for spiritual growth” that I’ve seen, tells a different story. It turns […]

Global Hunger Relief Run 2017

After a few days of manual labor at the Nashville Convention Center, I found myself standing in the exhibit area of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission talking about an organization that I was only beginning to understand.
