Editor’s Note: I have had many friends who have wondered about the recent Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting in Nashville this past week. Nate Brooks who is part of the SBC but works as the Assistant Professor of Christian Counseling at RTS Charlotte wrote this recent post explaining what he saw and experienced. He explains everything for the Presbyterians that he ministers alongside of. His explanation is thorough enough that I thought it would be good for others who were not there and do not understand everything related to the SBC. Many of my non-SBC friends have seen the headlines and wonder about many of the questions that he answers; from that perspective, I think this is helpful. The following article is his interpretation and opinion of what he experienced, thought, and observed while there. As always with guest authors, his opinions are his own.
