What is going to be our 911?

In my lifetime there are several events that I remember vididly. I remember where I was when I heard President Regan was shot. I remember watching the Shuttle Challenger Crash as well as the Columbia. I'm not old enough to remember the Great Depression or Pearl Harbor, but I've studied them in school. None of us will ever forget September 11, 2001. I was at Starbucks (go figure) hanging out with some guys in Towne Lake, GA. I remember rushing home and watching the events all day long. That day changed our country forever. All of those tragedies have a way of bringing people back to God. There have been certain days in my Baptist Life I will remember also. I remember being Baptised @ Emmanuel Baptist Church, Tuscaloosa, AL. I remember being accepted to Samford and Southwestern Seminary and graduating from both. Those were all great events. But I will also never forget the day the Southwestern Board of Trustees fired Dr. Rusell Dilday and locked him out of his office. I was stunned as the announcement was made following our Chapel service. That day changed my view of Baptist life forever. What kind of tragedy is going to have to happen to us before we wake up and realize that we don't have all of the answers? What is going to take place to bring us back to our knees? Look at some of the other denominations that have crumbled or become irrelevant because they could not disagree - agreeably. I realize I'm just one voice, but I'm tired of seeing us become arrogant and legalistic. I support the SBC because of our belief that the Bible is God's word and for our support of missionaries. I can't imagine how dishearting all of the "bloggate", "tonguegate" and "baptismgate" controversies must be to our missionaries across the world. They left their homes behind to share the love of Jesus and yet have to always be looking over their shoulders. I am grateful to all of our "M's!" Thanks for your service. Is Greensboro going to be the 911 for the SBC? Will we straighten the ship? Will we narrow our missionary personnel with legalistic policies or will we broaden our ministry by focusing on the essentials rather than the non-essentials. I believe our future starts this summer in Greensboro. The optimist in me sees revival. I don't have time for the pesimist thinking!

I remember that day when Dr. Dilday was fired. I was in Greek with Dr. Vaughn while the doors were closed and about half the class was there. Dr. Vaughn was just shaking his head in disbelief. Most of us left after talking about it with him and went to the foyer outside the meeting.

What was unbelievable about it was not that they wanted to fire Dr. Dilday. As Trustees, they had the right to do it if they chose. It is just that they had spent the previous several days telling Dr. Dilday and students in meeting in the student center and in the open sessions of the Board meetings that Dr. Dilday's job was secure.

The next thing you know, they are in executive session and it all goes sideways from there.

Firing Dr. Dilday is an issue completely seperate from the one of being open and honest - disagreeing with love and concern for one another.

I think Greensboro should be the place where we make tht stand by dealing with others open and honestly while instituting policies that our convention must be doing the same.
