This may not be "the change we must change to the change we hold dear" (HT:JibJab), but "the times, they are a changing" in the SBC blogosphere. For those of you trying to keep track, I update you on the following items:
SBC Today Launches New Podcast, "SBC Perspectives."
Disclaimer: I am a participant in the "SBC Perspectives" podcast.
SBC Today has been among the vanguards of the Southern Baptist Internet since its inception. Now the good fellows at SBC Today have launched a new podcast entitled SBC Perspective. They've even been so cordial as to invite me to participate. The taping of the pilot was a hoot. I'm really looking forward to this—basically it is a collection of friends discussing the events of the day and the events of the ages. We love one another and have fun with one another. We're going to have fun in the production of this podcast. I hope that you have fun listening from time to time.
If you're trying to keep up with who's saying what, I'm the guy who sounds like Gomer Pyle.
Andrew Fuller Center Moves to New Website
I love the eighteenth-century English Baptist grandee Andrew Fuller. So do the guys at the Andrew Fuller Center over at Southern. But there's more than just Andrew Fuller over there. His life and teachings make a great forum for considering our heritage and identity as Baptists. So, bookmark the link above and visit the fine folks over there often.
Baptist Distinctives Conference at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
OK, so this one doesn't really involve a change and has nary a thing to do with the Internet, other than the prominence of the themes involved in recent Baptist blogging and the involvement of some names you've either read or read about on the Internet. But, this one will be a conference worth attending and worth publicizing. I'll be there, and I would love to see you and visit for a while in Fort Worth in September.
