We just completed our attendance at the Pastor’s Conference (June 8-9) and Southern Baptist Convention (June 10-11). When time permits, I will give a recap of our interpretation of these events. We listened to thirteen sermons, several reports were given, and measures were voted upon. The conference and convention are always a great barometer of the direction and focus of our denomination in relation to the culture around us. Furthermore they highlight our strengths and weaknesses, renew our focus, celebrate our victories and point out areas where we need to improve.
