I just listened to a speech/sermon by the executive director of the Baptist General Convention of Texas., Dr. Charles Wade. I know there are some negative things circulating about Baptists, but let me tell you something – this group of people want to be Jesus’ representatives here on earth. They want to meet peoples’ needs – hunger, rights, poverty, environment. These are the people Baptists should be seen as, not those in the “new conservatives” who now run the Southern Baptist Convention and exclude the very people they should be reaching.
