Les Puryear joins us on the podcast to discuss the SBC Majority Initiative and his recent series of posts on the distinction between Reformed pastors and traditional Southern Baptist pastors who are Calvinists. A storm caused us to lose our connection with Les just as we are beginning to discuss his blog series, so you’ll notice a bit of disconnected dialogue in there, as we edited out the chatter that went on while we were working to get everyone reconnected.
This podcast also marks the beginning of a bit of a hiatus (or should that be “an hiatus”?) for us here at SBC Today. As we explain in the closing moments of the podcast, summer is in full swing, and everyone is busy with VBS, camps, mission trips, and the like, so we’ve decided it would be best to take a break. We plan to be back around the time state conventions begin having their annual meetings in the fall, and we will return with a renewed focus on the issues of ministry, evangelism, and ecclesiology that give us our distinctive identity as Baptists. We look forward to promoting and discussing these issues.

Article about the SBC
This podcast, which I incorrectly introduce as episode 27, was recorded around a conference table at a hotel near the convention center in Orlando after an eventful first day at the 2010 annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention. From the Pastor’s Conference to the motions to the debate and passage of the report of the Great Commission Task Force, we touched on all the topics of the day, and had a great time doing it.

It’s been an eventful day at the Southern Baptist Convention, and folks are sharing their thoughts with one another in hotel lobbies and convention center hallways across Orlando. The SBC Today team will be recording a podcast episode tonight in the lobby of the Residence Inn on Universal Boulevard in Orlando. We’ll be sharing reflections on the events of the day, and on the future of our convention.
