|Baptists heading to New Orleans|
June 13 2012
Every year I look forward to the early summer annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention! Catching up with friends... hearing the inspiring reports from around the world... participating in the business of the convention... breakfasts and luncheons... what a great time!
There will be much to follow in next week’s meeting in New Orleans: the SBC name, motions and resolutions on Calvinism (pro and con), reaching the lost, mission endeavors and the inevitable unexpected motions from the floor.
As always, your Biblical Recorder staff will be on the floor of the convention, reporting news as quickly as possible. Check our website regularly for the latest news.
