Southern Baptist Convention

Yesterday, I went to the Southern Baptist Convention in Nashville for an hour. I saw 6 people I knew. Things have so changed since I pastored and was so a part of it all. The first convention I went to was in Dallas, TX in 1972. It was fun then. There was no political agenda. No one was afraid of moderates. The SBC President elected was a surprise, not someone presented by a religious political machine. I remember someone was elected who had never even led a prayer in the association. How different now. Everything is done before the convention, elected by a short list of politically elite fundamentalist. Oh well, that's the way it is !!
