There is talk of 20,000 people coming to the New Baptist Covenant celebration [see BLOG] next January but i don't know if that is hopeful dreaming or Baptist big talk. It has been suspected of having a strong political agenda but there are some fine upstanding Baptist groups who are supporting it for other reasons. Suzii Paynter, of my home church back in Austin, says that Baptists are coming "together to reconcile racial divisions, and speak in unity about priorities of the gospel" [ link]. I am considering coming and a few weeks ago I asked about some help in getting there. Sooooo . .. who else is going and do you think it is worth me turning up?
UPDATE: OK _ thanks. I decided not to go.
