baptists on the riverwalk
Michael Ruffin has an insightful piece on the SBC's return to San Antonio in Ethics Daily today.
I remember the 1988 convention as well, primarily because Daddy and his pastor friend left us with our mothers in Austin to play for a few days while they went to San Antonio. We swam at Barton Springs, visited the Capitol, and went to Aquarina Springs in San Marcos. I think we probably had the better end of that deal.
