“And they were amazed and astonished, saying, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each of us in his OWN native language?”

Acts 2:7-11

“Parthians and Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, ...

I'm gonna pray for #SBC19 that the Spirit brings a kind of #Pentecost to them that breaks off their arrogance, factionalism, authoritarianism. They only know how to tantrum, power up, and purge. Their deep work is to heal their love of power. #SBC
It's a love of power that uses Baptist distinctives to avoid real solutions to #SBCtoo it's a love of power for @albertmohler to say that the real crisis in #SBC is women preaching.
It's love of power that ignores Baptist distinctives to punish churches over adiaphora.
It's love of power that turns women preaching into a litmus test on orthodoxy. It's love of power that seeks to punish @drmoore for speaking truth to power. It's love of power to constantly need men to be warrior-kings, and to hold heresy about the Trinity to justify it. #SBC19

On #Pentecost Sunday these are the dreams I dream:

I dream of a church that is a city of refuge and a shelter from the storm.

I dream of a church that is a pioneer in the way of peace and never again a chaplain to the masters of war.
I dream of a church that excels in contemplative practices and contemplative stances.

I dream of a church that is at home in God’s good world instead of huddled anxiously at the departure gate.

I dream of a church where faith and science are not at odds.
I dream of a church that is conservative because there are wisdom traditions worth preserving.

I dream of a church that is progressive because the journey is ongoing.

I dream of a church that is a viable alternative to soulless secularism.
