More Baptists informing Ablaze! by Mollie
So from Ed Stetzer’s Twitter feed, I learn that another Baptist will be meeting with Synodical leadership tomorrow. Here’s the, uh, tweet:
Dinner with Bob Roberts. Bob is speaking tomorrow to the same LCMS Lutheran group where I just spoke today. Nice surprise.
I’m sure these people are lovely, but I don’t get what Lutherans hope to learn from Southern Baptists.
Here’s some info on Bob Roberts and here’s his blog:
Dr. Bob Roberts, Jr., founding pastor of NorthWood Church, a fast-growing church near Dallas/Ft Worth, TX, is a leading practitioner and writer on glocalâ€”local and globalâ€”transformation of individuals, churches, communities and nations. Roberts’ unique principles have transformed the people and ministry at NorthWood and its 80 (and counting) church plants and impacted “adopted” nations throughout the world. He is the founder of GlocalNet (Glocal.net), a network of like-minded leaders who are advancing a glocal church multiplication movement that connects the body of Christ worldwide.
I have no doubt that “advancing a glocal church multiplication movement” sounds impressive to Synod, Inc. I also think it sounds like a parody of church bureaucratese.
