The conference has now concluded. It was an honor to be asked to live-blog this event. I can say that it was personally easy for me to accept this gracious invitation because I love the fact that a Baptist State Convention is leading the way in thinking faithfully and carefully on the relationship between Christian faith and politics. That is a most-welcome happening, and I was privileged to be a part of it. Also, please note that I will be posting one more address from Dr. Nathan Finn in the next day or two.
I can say that the conference included a number of excellent addresses which will be worth listening to when they are available. From Ben Mitchell’s incisive talk on Islam and transhumanism to Andy Davis’s piercing call to churchly holiness to Ken Fentress’s prophetic homily to the Southern Baptist Convention, all of the talks were profitable and rich.
Many thanks to conference organizer Doug Baker and to all of the participants and speakers. The event was very nicely staged and executed, and I anticipate further events of excellence from Mr. Baker and his office. Again, I was so thankful to be a part of an event like this, and I hope that churches and other ministry venues will catch the vision for cultural engagement that is both excellent and biblical.
