latinos at the nbc
Laura the Elder has a fantastic piece in Ethics Daily today. She writes about the challenge of being a Latina Baptist, and wonders whether there is truly room for all Baptists at the table of the New Baptist Covenant. It's a great piece (her first), and I encourage you to check it out.
While it's no secret that I think the NBC was a great opportunity for reconciliation, it was hard not to notice how few Hispanic Baptists were in attendance at the meeting. If the movement coming out of the NBC is to be truly relevant in our increasingly diverse society, we need to be sure that everyone is included, from the beginning.
