With the announcement of Jerry Sutton as a third candidate for the presidency of the SBC the interest, dialogue and speculation about how that election will go has greatly increased. Here are some good sources of information about it. Marty Duren has an interview with Sutton that helps compare his views on several specific issues with those of Frank Page (Ronnie Floyd declined such an interview with Tad Thompson, though his thoughts on some of the same matters can be found in BP reports). Marty also announces that he will live-blog the convention. Don Hinkle clarifies some misunderstandings that emerged from an AP story on Sutton.
In addition, Steve McCoy announces an informal gathering for missional folks and those who should be (which leaves me wondering who should not attend).
I look forward to meeting many of you at the Founders Breakfast and perhaps during the Pastors’ Conference and convention itself. I should be easy to spot. I will be the one with the beautiful bride, or, as she is sometimes affectionately called, my “lovely wife.” 🙂
