This morning Baptist Press issued a press release from the Chairman of the Trustees of the International Mission Board. I drafted a response that I then read to a group of men who have provided me wisdom during this difficult time. Everyone within my accountability group thought I should post my response and I did so one hour after the press release.
I then heard from one person on my accountability group that I had been unable to contact earler. He read my response and told me that he agreed with everything I said, but he wondered if I should wait a few hours before I officially responded. I respect this man's wisdom and have taken off my initial post. I have told him that I will wait until this evening. I am currently seeking to contact trustee leadership to ask them personally about two very serious concerns I have with the press release. I am waiting until I hear from them before I respond officially.
In His Grace,
