What can we do?
This week's issue of the BRweekly includes several news stories to highlight. Be sure to read the latest on disaster relief in the wake of Hurricane Dorian, along with Milton Hollifield's words of thanks for volunteers.
Don't miss coverage of Ronnie Floyd's inauguration as president of the Southern Baptist Convention's (SBC) Executive Committee, or the courageous outreach and evangelism taking place in Concord, N.C.
There is also an up-close account of what migrants are facing at the U.S. border, according to a group of Southern Baptist women who visited earlier this month.
The most poignant words in this issue are those of SBC first vice president Marshal Ausberry about depression among pastors. His article comes in the wake of the death of Jarrid Wilson, a well-known pastor and mental health advocate from California who committed suicide Sep. 9.
Ausberry's words should linger in the hearts of churches across the country: “What can we do to prevent this from occurring again?”
