A tale of two candidates
I appreciate this good Facebook post by Ken Hemphill Tuesday morning:
“1. Pray that everyone in this process will have the wisdom and grace to remain focused on discovering the will of God and thus that which is best for the SBC. I believe in our congregational polity, but I don't believe it is meant to be a political process to out vote one another, but a means of discovering and doing the will of God (Acts 6:5).
2. Pray that persons who feel strongly about a certain candidate or issue will speak with respect and kindness.
3. Pray that the entire process leading up to the convention will stand as an example to the world about how Christians conduct themselves.
4. Pray that the eventual results of this and other issues raised at our annual convention meeting in June will glorify Christ, unify our convention, and advance God's kingdom.”
