Alabama Baptist Convention

The Alabama Baptist State Convention convened today. What a great day it was. As dry as reports can be, I enjoyed hearing most of the reports and was excited to see how God is working through Alabama Baptists.

Joe McKeever did an excellent job in his theme interpretations of "LeaderConnect."

Roger Willmore's President's Address called for Alabama Baptists to return to a reliance on the Holy Spirit. He asked the question, "Has the modern day church with all of its resources and technology stopped looking to the Holy Spirit for its power?"

The best part of the day was the evening worship time. The Alabama Baptist Singing Men and Women were truly a blessing to hear. Kevin Derryberry did a great job in leading us in a time of worship. Rick Burgess of the Rick and Bubba Show did a great job of reminding Alabama Baptists why we are here; to reach people for Christ. While maybe not a deep message, it was a very challenging and, I believe, much needed message for Alabama Baptists, including this one.

Thanks to Roger Willmore for putting together a great convention.
