Just saw the new format at Russell Moore’s blog – great stuff! Beautiful typography, really top notch Video comments – Bart & Trevin break the silence More Dr. Moore blogging, Carl F. H. Henry would approve.
This post is a response to “We Have Reached A Tipping Point” by Dr. Alvin Reid as posted (here, here, here, & here). WE should not overlook this one fact – the SBC has a history of self correction. It’s never been pretty, and it’s often been too late. But as a denomination we’ve always […]
Our SBC Blog Madness was open only to blogs that allowed reader comments. That ruled out some great blogs, like Albert Mohler and Between The Times. Now, by the providence of God, at least one of those two has become a “real” blog. I’m taking credit and will brag about it to anyone who will […]
After clearing my inbox, we’ve passed the 500 mark for blogs tracked by SBC voices. Blog Madness gave us a big boost on traffic too.
On a blog like this, we tend to be self-critical to a fault. But behind all our talk about making the SBC better is an unspoken assumption – we still love our denomination and especially its people. So, this post is my attempt at penance for all the nasty things I’ve every thought about being […]
This morning we received a leaked email that must be revealed. It appears to be the communication between two senior level leaders inside our convention. After confirming the authenticity of this memo, we have decided to post it here in full. The names have been edited to avoid lawsuits. Update: It turns out this memo […]
When a ball game becomes a blowout in the first half, the conversation shifts to more punditry than play-by-play. So, I thought I would share a few things I’ve learned about SBC blogs from this contest. What does blog madness tell us about SBC bloggers? We like books. Almost everyone played along for a mere […]
From God’s Call to God’s Sanctification: It’s not easy being me. It made no sense. I’d been born-again all of 8 months. I sat in an auditorium in Ridgecrest, North Carolina listening to Bertha Smith challenge us all to pray for the Lord to bring forth laborers for His harvest. That tiny gray-haired lady charged […]
After 2 weeks of intense competition, the field is down to four. At stake is bragging rights and a $313 gift card to Westminster Books via email. This prize was donated by my children’s ministry website (check out my Vacation Bible School articles)and earned via the Westminster blog partners. Blog Madness ended Monday 6 April 2009 – scroll down […]

I have been following the InternetMonk’s recent posts about the Southern Baptist Convention with interest. I can identify with some of the themes that he is talking about and some of the issues, and I think some of the solutions are already in our midst as well. I would like to give you some insight […]
I’ve heard from several readers who are just discovering that iMonk is a long time (and current) Southern Baptist. Even more are surprised that he is making a solid run in our SBC blog contest. So, if you need just one more post to prove his credentials as an SBC blogger, I think he just […]
