What is the BGCT? November 29, 2007

So, I understand that not everyone who reads this blog is Baptist.  I am incredibly grateful for that.  I also understand that many of the Baptists may not care about reading posts regarding Baptist life. 

It certainly is not my intention to make this blog about Baptist life (although it might improve my blog stats!  ha), but there seem to be lots of important conversations going on around the state of Texas concerning the future of our state convention, the Baptist General Convention of Texas.  Whether you are Baptist or not, I think you will gain something from what my uncle, Ken Hall, wrote on his blog concerning what the BGCT is. 

 It is a great post of what the purpose of our Conventions and larger Baptist entities are.

    Thanks for the advertisement. I hope some of what we are talking about is going to encourage our young leaders and moderately informed. We need some new blood and a new generation to take leadership.

    there is certainly a need for some new blood and integral involvement of a new generation. It seems to me there has been a shift in conversations over the past weeks and that the door is opening for this to happen. Thanks again for your thoughts Uncle Ken.
