Who's Left?

Dear North Carolina Baptist State Convention,

I have just read about the new policy approved today. The quote from my news source says that it "means churches can't support, promote or bless homosexual behavior. If they do, they risk being banned from the Baptist State Convention."

Now that homosexuality has been addressed, I hope the convention will address other sins in our churches. Maybe, for example, the sins of sexual abuse, divorce, lying, or gluttony could be addressed. If you see those going on in a church, then you could kick them out of the convention, too. Oh, wait a minute...no church would be left in the convention if that were to happen.

But isn't it good to know that the speck of sawdust has been removed?

It's always easier to see "theirs" rather than ours, isn't it?

Hello,

I'm over at TakeMyHand, and you posted on my blog to say that you were a fellow YTI alum. I just wanted to say hello! I've "met" a number of folks that were YTI scholars in the 1990's ( I have no idea why I've never met any of the millenial YTI ers) through my blog and it's been a pretty cool thing.

I'm glad you stopped by!

Take care,
Natalie

Maybe they can issue a Gluttony Alert tomorrow, concurrent with Thanksgiving, to save their membership from the consequences of this grievous sin.;-) (/snark)

Happy Delurking!

I think it is crazy how the North Carolina Baptists are acting. They make me ill!
