Southern Baptists Resolve to Racial Reconciliation

the Southern Baptist Convention publicly resolves to fulfill racial reconciliation. One of my favorite things about the Southern Baptist movement is that although it is a historical movement, it is continuously reforming based on their commitment to rethinking (repenting). Southern Baptists aren’t perfect, as they would readily admit, but I believe that as a whole they are living in the mission of the church to display the radical, self-giving love of Christ. Their resolutions present a challenge to other Christian movements, encouraging us to always be reforming ourselves, our Christian communities, and our greater socio-geographical communities. As an alumnus of a Southern Baptist University, I am proud to acknowledge this institution as a part of my own personal story and heritage. May I be so committed to Jesus Christ, as well.
