My recent series – “Declarations, Announcements and Observations” – represents why I have added my name to the Memphis Declaration. For example, I apologize to the leadership and members of the Baptist World Alliance for the way in which the leaders of the SBC acted with regard to our pulling out of the very organization we helped to found. No amount of spin will convince me this was anything but the result of making room for the CBF. I apologize that we looked for uniformity rather than unity. May God continue to bless your work.

Todd, j.d. here. I’ve heard you say before you thought the BWA thing was a mistake, but i just noticed you said that it was nothing than a way of getting back at the CBF. The implication is you thought it was kind of a catty, childish response. Is that right?
i cannot locate your e-mail address. i would be happy to discuss your question in that forum. if you would really be interested in the thoughts behind my sense of the whole bwa thing, send me an e-mail – email@example.com.
by the way, glad you have been nominated for a vp spot at the convention. i saw your “interview” over at another blog and as i suspected found you engaging and well spoken.
