Ryan, the Celebrity
Just yesterday, the SBC Outpost blog published a "resolution" by Missouri Baptist pastor Roger Moran, condemning the SBC's association with the "emerging church". Amidst his absurd, frantic guilt web of association, he quoted a blog entry of my friend Ryan, with whom I founded The Core, in an attempt to show how the SBC is dangerously teetering on the edge of liberalism. HA HA! At least as hilarious as the ridiculous associations he creates, he tags The Core an "SBC church plant". While Ken, Kurt, and Vince graciously oriented us to the ways of MBC church planting via their training seminars (Thanks, guys!), we never established any official ties to the Convention. Thanks anyway for the publicity! And thanks, Andrew, for bringing this across my desk (folding table).
