I have been serving as President of the Southern Baptist Convention for 138 days. When I look at what has occurred in our world in these past 138 days, I am absolutely astounded.
Review with me what has happened in these past four months in our nation and world:
- Texas border crisis: Crisis reached new heights in June. I was able to visit the Texas border with Russell Moore on July 22.
- Hobby Lobby court decision: Released on June 30, giving us an encouraging message about religious liberty.
- Conflict between Gaza and Israel: This major conflict from July 8 through August 26 is still resulting in many challenges in this part of the world.
