DALLAS—The Baptist General Convention of Texas Executive Board may bring in an interim executive director—at least for a short time.

BGCT Executive Board leaders are examining options for short-term leadership of the board’s staff in the likely event the next convention executive director will not be on the job before BGCT Executive Director Charles Wade retires at the end of January.

Merry Christmas, Ross Wolfe

By John Duncan

I’m sitting here under the old oak tree, thinking about Christmas and wondering in the spirit of the season about Ross Wolfe. Where are you, dear brother? Ross Wolfe, I wish you a Merry Christmas.

You sent me a letter, and I lost it while moving to a new town. If you had seen the 6,000 pounds of stuff, file cabinets and hundreds of books and papers stacked high that the movers moved to my new office, you would understand. I dug deep for your letter, but to no avail. In fact, you have, through the years, sent me letters.

Brothers find home for Christmas

ROUND ROCK—For one of the few times in their young lives, Trey and Derek Atkins will have a real home for Christmas, thanks to Charlie and Cindy Goble, a Burnet couple who thought their childrearing days were behind them.

“To see God working and then be allowed to be right in the middle of it is an amazing and humbling experience,” Cindy Goble said.
