Yesterday I spent the day in West Virginia. I was there to speak to the WVCSB Pastors’ Conference. I met some wonderful leaders. Reports were given of great work being done. One of the exciting things I heard was the report from Frontier Church. It is a new work in Morgantown. A fired up young church planter told of the work. These are good days for church planters in our SBC family.
And Southern Baptists are doing more than planting. We are working to revitalize churches that are declining. Change is demanded and no one can make this happen. However, there are some good people in many of these churches who want to see life blossom again.
Southern Baptists are at work in the storm path of Sandy. We will feed 400,000 meals a day. And we will tell the story of Jesus. That is GOOD NEWS and GOOD WORKS!
I have been reminded again that I am glad to be a Southern Baptist. We are not perfect but we are making a difference.
