Iron Sharpens Iron radio interview from Indy

Monday, June 9, 2008 I will be interviewed by Chris Arnzen on his radio show, “Iron Sharpens Iron” at 3PM Eastern time. The show can be heard in New York & Connecticut on WNYG-1440AM Radio. It is also can be heard on the web via Chris’s blog or at the station’s website. We will be discussing the reformed roots of the SBC as well as the resolution on integrity in church membership that I hope will make it out in some form at the Southern Baptist Convention this week.

I met my wife in Indianapolis tonight after preaching at Heritage Baptist Church in Owensboro, Kentucky this morning. That is a wonderful church and I was greatly encouraged by the privilege of worshiping with them. Pastor Ted Christman is an old and dear friend. He and his fellow pastors have done a great job shepherding God’s people there. I hate to be away from my home church on Sunday but the wonderful time of worship with the family at Heritage made it easier to bear today.

Indianapolis is hot and humid. I am grateful that we are not being affected by all of the flooding that has taken place elsewhere in the state. The SBC Pastors Conference continues tomorrow followed by the annual SBC meeting Tuesday and Wednesday. The Founders Breakfast will take place before the first session Tuesday morning. Eric Redmond will be preaching and we are sold out but trying to arrange to squeeze in a few more who want to come.

Already I have bumped into a few friends and acquaintances. Several have asked if I know when the Resolution Committee will bring out their report. I don’t, but I suspect it will be Wednesday morning.

If I have time, I will post any thoughts or reflections I have on the proceedings of the next few days. The presidential election and Resolutions Committee’s report are the two main business items on my radar.
