Letters: Pope isn't more liberal

Many in the media think the Catholic pope is becoming more liberal, but he isn’t. He doesn’t think women should have the same rights as men.

In Touch

In Touch: Welcome Pastor Day

On Sept. 5, your Baptist General Convention of Texas Executive Board staff received 50 pastors from around the state for “Welcome Pastor Day!” here at your Baptist Building. It was a great time for all of us.

Down Home

Down Home: Football will break your heart, and more

My football career ended in January 1974 when the coach said, "I don’t think we’ve got a rising sophomore as small as you.”

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. 

Down Home

Down Home: The God of all our moments

Fifty years zips by in a hurry, doesn’t it? Well, yes and no. In some ways, 1963 seems like only moments ago. In others, it feels like eons.

God's Will-o-meter
