SEND generates excitement and vision
It's very hot in Nashville, Tenn., this week – Tuesday's high of 98 was a record for the year – but that did not stop more than 13,000 Baptists from walking long distances and standing in line to get inside the Bridgestone Arena for the 2015 Send North America Conference. The excitement has been high, matching the volume of the music and the rich biblical content of each speaker's message. If you have not been able to follow the live streaming, you will be able to purchase all of the sermons and breakout sessions. Check the Send website for details.
Your Biblical Recorder will continue to post stories from the Send conference. Read this one now and watch for more over the next week. Pray for each person who attended. Pray they will be faithful to follow everything God gave them to do.
Watch for news from the ERLC's Gospel and Politics conference in Nashville on Wednesday. This should be a very powerful event.
