baptists in conversation

Kevin Bussey, who is an SBC pastor in North Carolina, is posing some very interesting questions to moderate Baptists on his blog this week, and is providing a space for a calm, rational, respectful discussion of the differences between conservatives and moderates. If you consider yourself a moderate or liberal Baptist, I encourage you to visit his blog and join in the conversation in a way that acknowledges the respectfulness of the discussion.

Much of this discussion was provoked by a meeting of a wide variety of Baptists (which notably did not involve any SBC representatives) in Atlanta earlier this week. Baptist Standard coverage of the event is here. I haven't had time to thoughtfully blog about the group's efforts, but you can read informative commentary from Robert Parham, Marv Knox via Melissa Rogers, and Aaron.

Thanks for the great discussion. I really am trying to understand other points of view. Bear with me.

Have you noticed the lack of women at this conference? Go to Bruce Prescott's mainstream Baptist blog and see the pics from the conference--no women. This is progressive??

I hadn't notice that, but, sadly, I'm not surprised. I'm going to be optimistic and assume that they invited several prominent Baptist women who were too busy to attend.
