It is 1:30 am Wednesday morning and I am winding down from a very long day. Up early for business meetings and the SBC Presidential election, and back at the hotel late tonight. I have many things to say, but no time nor energy to say them in writing.
Instead, I'd like you to read what others are saying.
Ben Cole gives his genuinely razor sharp analysis of Ronnie Floyd's election as President of the SBC.
Watchdog gives a stunning indictment on the silence of SBC leaders regarding the Darryl Gilyard affair.
The official blog of Baptist Press reported on the nearly one dozen motions offered from the floor Tuesday by individual messengers today. Of note was the motion that the "trustees of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary report to the convention the reason a person of 'another faith' was allowed to enroll in their seminary." I suspect the trustees of SWBTS will be doing just that very thing tomorrow at 3:57 pm (their Convention report).
There are a few things that went unnoticed by many in the SBC today, and it could possibly be I might write about some of them in a future post. Among those things unnoticed include the reason why Tim Rogers was first nominated to be a trustee of the International Mission Board, but was later removed from the list presented by the Committee on Nominations.
Finally, I had some great fellowship with several individuals today from Oklahoma and around the nation. I learned a great deal about Louisiana College, Brewton-Parker College, and Cedarville University. The future at these three institutions will be filled with interesting developments.
It will again be late evening before I can post my thoughts tomorrow night.
