Peru: Don't give up

Students on Mission Blog: As I prepare the lessons for the kids in the children’s ministry and feeding program here in Peru, I have found out it’s quite a challenge, because these kids do not want to learn.

Just War Theory

Is ‘just war’ another victim of the Syrian conflict?

As the world’s powers grasped for a last-minute resolution to the crisis in Syria, it remained an open question whether any amount of diplomacy could prevent the conflict from claiming at least one more victim—the classic Christian teaching known as the “just war” tradition.

Letters Baylor

Letters: Long-gone Baylor days

I’m a former officer of the Baylor Alumni Association, and I’ve always been a proud Baylor grad, but those days are gone.

editorial civility

Editorial: The Syria debate and a case for humility and civility

What if in America we opened our minds as well as our hearts, relinquishing a tight grip on our arguments in order to learn from each other? We might not agree, but we could appreciate and respect one another.

In Touch

In Touch: Helping elementary school students

I begin by thanking Director of Missions Bob Dean and his staff at Dallas Baptist Association for their partnership with Texas Baptists in providing school uniforms and, in the near future, an outdoor classroom for the 1,100 students at George W. Truett Elementary School in East Dallas.

press freedom

Editorial: Extortion is not Christ-like

I appreciate letters to the editor and constructive criticism. Threats are another thing altogether.

Texas Baptist Forum

Letters: MLK and voter ID

I pastor a church that has become increasingly ethnically diverse over the years. I have also been a careful student of not only the “I Have a Dream” speech of Martin Luther King, but also many of his other sermons.

2nd Opinion

2nd Opinion: In worship, you can’t please everyone

I am convinced those who lead in music and worship ministry are the recipients of an obscene amount of vitriol, anger, criticism and unreasonable expectations. Healthy churches can do better.

Down Home

Down Home: Smudges or symbols of love?

The screen on my laptop is a smudgy mess. And I don’t intend to clean it up.

Right or Wrong?

Right or Wrong: Suffering builds character

What is the relationship between character development and chronic illness?
