This week, I am in Phoenix, AZ for the Southern Baptist Convention. Though many of you who read my blog regularly are not Southern Baptist, I hope that you will be in prayer for our Convention. The SBC makes an impact in the wider world of evangelicalism and will continue to do so in the future. Our denomination is seeking to proclaim the gospel in a world that is quickly diversifying and fragmenting. My prayer is that we will be faithful to the Lord, obedient to the Scriptures, and united in Great Commission focus.
If you are on Twitter, read this article to find out how to follow the news and conversation by using the #SBC2011 hashtag.
Below, I have linked to some personal reflections on the SBC that I have posted here in the past, and which will give you an idea of the current situation of the Convention.
(By the way, I’m joining other Southern Baptist authors for a book signing today from 10:00-11:00 a.m. at the LifeWay store at the Convention Center. If you are a blog reader, or you’ve picked up a copy of Holy Subversion or Counterfeit Gospels, I hope you will stop by.)
