Jeannie:

Speaking of Baptists, a great couple is moving in your neighborhood, Jeannie, and you ought to make their acquaintance.
Richard Kremer will become the new pastor of Garden Lakes, BC in Rome, Ga.
Kremer was a Rhodes Scholar finalist at UGA in late 70's where he ran track; and his wife comes from a stellar SC Baptist family.
Meet them in Summerville for lunch this September. Great folks.

Pastor Rives, thanks so much for thanks for sending me this link. It was a very good read; I encourage all readers to have a look.

I appreciate your referencing my column so kindly, when you could have taken offense. I certainly don't take your response as a declaration of blog war. If a columnist referenced me by name, I would certainly respond -- hopefully as graciously as you have.

More later,
Jeannie

Jeannie,

I am the pastor of Eastside Church of the Cross of Louisburg, Kansas. Thanks for your article (it has made it to many places). I wanted to respond, but the comment section is not sufficient. For that reason, I posted a reply on my blog.

My reply, http://mrrives.com/Gezer/?p=147

This is not meant to be a blog war at all -- I really did agree with your basic thesis -- so please consider my post as part of the dialog.


Steve Rives, Pastor
Eastside Church of the Cross.

Jeannie:
I think you will find more than fascinating Harold Bloom's early 90's The American Religion.
I think you will be hooked ten pages in.
And consider taking in Alice McDermott when she reads late August at Sewanee Writers Conference.
One should catch a Pulitzer reading whenever one can.

I just read the Wiki you quoted. It now includes the Nazarene church. Thanks to you, no doubt.

Very reliable!

Anon, I'm sorry you haven't yet grasped the joy of Wikipedia. Come join us in the 21st Century already.

Quoting Wikipedia is no less professional than quoting a stranger in the street, which is done all the time. (And is certainly more professional than leaving cowardly anonymous quotes!) I then went on to share very specific examples of Baptist churches that have gone incognito. If you don't believe it's happening, well, I guess that's your choice.

2009-06-19T06:06:24.491-07:00

One of the things I love about the Church of the Nazarene is its unusual origin. Whereas most denominations are born through splits and splinters, the Church of the Nazarene represents a gathering together of numerous churches & denominations.

It's an imperfect denomination full of imperfect people. I'd never suggest differently. I love the Church of the Nazarene. I also love SBC churches (in which I was raised.) I have a certain affinity for those Episcopalians, too. They have such a sweet reverence in worship, unlike anything I've seen elsewhere. I love the enthusiasm of the Pentecostal churches, and I love the Methodist tendency to view the Gospel as an impetus for serve (rather than condemn) the needy people of this world.

I understand the danger & ugliness inherent in warring, splitting denominations. But I also the beauty each one brings to world. Perhaps different groups are called into being to reveal God's glory in different ways.

2009-06-19T05:29:44.622-07:00

Although I'm not a Baptist, I think you should read Matt 5:7 and think about your glass house This (packaging) issue apparently has plagued other denominations;

The second General Assembly of the Pentecostal Church of the Nazarene met in a joint session with the General Council of the Holiness Church of Christ from October 8 to 14, 1908, at Pilot Point, Texas.

Denominational Change of Name. The General Assembly of 1919, in response to memorials from 35 district assemblies, officially changed the name of the organization to Church of the Nazarene because of new meanings that had become associated with the term “Pentecostal.”

2009-06-19T04:07:55.525-07:00

I notice you cited Wikipedia as a source. That's extremely unprofessional, as Wiki is tampered with by the average Joe and not concrete nor dependable sourcing. You should conduct research like a true journalist, and stop this snatching bits of info to suit your opinion. Shame on you.

Congrats on this piece and having ethicsdaily.com pick it up.
I think you will want to own a copy of Glen Feldman's collection Religion and Politics in the White South.
And don't forget my friend Ron Rash. You're gonna love him.
You and GMM will also want to take a look at Dianne Butler Ross's new book on the Evolution of Christianity which got good play today at religiondispatches.org

2009-06-08T11:25:06.568-07:00

I am not a Baptist either, and I totally agree with you. Be who you are and change from within. If you don't agree with the SBC and you can't change it, have the courage to leave it. Don't hide behind a name.
