News from Nashville and Charlotte 

The Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention meets three times each year to transact business for the convention between annual meetings. This week the group met in Nashville, Tenn., in the middle of a winter storm that crippled the city. As you see in this story, they met the standards for a quorum and took significant actions. They approved motions to amend the ministry assignment of the North American Mission Board, to give a new name to one of our six seminaries and to approve electronic voting at the annual convention. Read this story and watch for a follow-up story on the meeting.

The Charlotte City Council is taking dangerous steps against moral decency. Most North Carolinians have heard about the council’s plan to vote on a new "anti-discrimination" policy. The opposition is growing, but the council seems to be intent on doing the wrong thing.

On Thursday, Pastor Mark Harris is hosting a forum at First Baptist Church in Charlotte to help educate pastors about the dangers of "SOGI" ordinances. Pastors and other concerned leaders in or near Charlotte are encouraged to attend the forum at 10 a.m., Thurs., Feb. 19, at First Baptist Church Charlotte, 301 S. Davidson Street. Please RSVP at (704) 375-1446. Attendees will learn about the legal impact of the proposed non-discrimination ordinance for churches, businesses and citizens of Charlotte, and to learn what pastors and churches can do to stop it.

Watch for an editorial by Tami Fitzgerald that will be posted Wednesday on BRnow.org. She is an attorney and the executive director of the N.C. Values Coalition. Her insights will be very valuable to your understanding of the issue.

FINAL CALLThe 'One Story’ conference is this Monday, February 23! I am excited to see how God will use this meeting to change lives for eternity!
