The 2010 Southern Baptist Convention in Orlando, Florida
I plan to watch as much as the Pastors' Conference and the Southern Baptist Convention as possible and reflect on what I've seen and heard here at Grace and Truth to You. Due to the accessibility of the Internet and the live feeds from Orlando, I may be posting one or two times a day, depending on the issues that will be addressed in the business meetings. I am posting this particularly blog as I watch (live) the Greater Things Pastors' Conference in Orlando, Florida.
My first thought is the corporate worship at the Pastors' Conference is tremendous. The truth is, we Southern Baptists do many things very, very well. My hope and desire is that we don't so bogged down in the tertiery doctrinal issues that we lose sight of the primacy of Jesus Christ. The modern rendition of "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing," with choir, orchestra and ensemble sent chills of delight up my spine -- even as I watched on a computer screen.
Good stuff. Really good stuff.
