Redmond for VP

No, Barak Obama has not chosen his running mate. Rather, our brother and friend, Eric Redmond will be nominated for second VP of the Southern Baptist Convention. Those of us who know Eric are not surprised. Eric is a brother of geniune and humble convictions. I am always encouraged when I hear from him or read something he wrote. I pray God would be gracious to us and put Eric in this position of influence. And yet, whether he receives the appointment or not, I rejoice at the pending nomination because it serves as further evidence that God is moving by His Spirit and doing an awakening work in His church. I continue to marvel at what God is doing and how He is allowing us to be used in His doing it. Soli Deo Gloria!

Today the Vice President...Tomorrow.....well, let's just see about the Vice Presidency first.

Praise the Lord! As a black reformed southern baptist hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

I just saw this for the first time today. I was humbled. Then I thought, "I am going to get him for that last line one day!"

For Non Nobis Domine Readers:

By the way, the technically correct way to speak of what has happened is to say, "there is a declaration of intent to nominate Eric..." I will actually be nominated from the floor of the Convention. This is the SBC way of giving people a heads up.
