Mainstream Baptists Sponsor Forum for Oklahoma Conference of Churches

Yesterday morning, Mainstream Oklahoma Baptists sponsored a forum for the Oklahoma Conference of Churches. The forum discussing the documentary "Theologians Under Hitler" was hosted by the Church of the Servant Methodist Church in Oklahoma City.

Moderating the forum was Dr. Robert Parham, Executive Director of the Baptist Center for Ethics who produced a study guide for the documentary. Participants, from left to right, were Rabbi Russell Fox of Emmanuel Synagogue in Oklahoma City, Rev. Tim Daerhamer of Resurrection Lutheran Church in Yukon, and Rev. T Thomas, Coordinator for the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Oklahoma.

Last evening, Mainstream Oklahoma Baptists sponsored another forum at the Oklahoma City Public Library. Forum participants for that discussion of the documentary were, from left to right, Robert Parham, moderator, Cathy Pettijohn, Director of Holocaust Research Education for the Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City, Rev. Don Vaught, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Conference of Churches, and Rev. Tim Daerhamer.

Both conferences were well attended, highly informative, and generated much thoughtful dialogue and discussion.
