Celebrating Diversity

The Baptist Standard is reporting that Texas Baptist's governance committee is recommending that nearly a third of the membership of its Executive Board be non-Anglo. That would double the percentage of non-Anglo Executive Board members.

Kudos to BGCT's governance committee and the leaders of Texas Baptists. The days of Anglo dominance in Baptist life are ending. The future of Baptist life will be rich in diversity and inclusivity.

Those Baptists content to see token ethnic leaders spotlighted on occasions will find the Southern Baptist Convention a more comfortable home.
