Revival definitely needed
    November 21 2011 by John Alden Tagliarini, First Baptist Church of Bryson City, N.C.

    I heard and greatly appreciated the words by theme interpreter, Al James, and convention sermon pastor, Darryl Craft on Tuesday evening (Nov. 8). Resonating powerfully was the call for unity and love of each other as believers.
     
    However, I wondered what disunity or lack of love they have observed, prompting such fervor. The claim that we’ve turned a corner and are doing great work in great ways suggests that we are now unified. Indeed, I perceived no dissent at any point in the meetings or hallways. Is the call intended to motivate us to reach out to other evangelicals more clearly?
     
    Is the call to recognize our organic unity with believers in the mainline churches?   Does the call include believers from Roman Catholic or Orthodox communities? Does the call for love of brother include the moderate?
     
    We do need revival, and my need for personal renewal conditions my prayer life. I wonder who will take the first steps of love, humility, forgiveness and unity?
