    The topic on Ann "preaching" on Sunday Morning Worship to the SBC pastors is bothersome.

    Where is the local church in all this? Are these preachers (who should know better) going to form their own Sunday Morning Worship sans church? And then have a woman "speak" (or whatever euphemism you desire to avoid the obvious)?

    Thoughts?

    Having a couple of speakers in on Sunday morning prior to the Pastor's Conference beginning on Sunday evening is a norm. Many pastors arrive on Saturday (such as yours truly) and this opportunity is there for those who feel compelled to go. Anne Graham will not be the only lady who addresses the convention during the week. The convention is not a local church service (neither is the Pastor's Conference). A lady providing scriptural teaching outside the local church is definitely acceptable in much of SBC life. The primary issue in the debate is whether a woman can serve in the role of a pastor, not whether she can offer biblical teaching in a conference format.

    I'm not fussing (on this thread) with Ann preaching. I'm just scratching my head over pastors having a "worship service" on Sunday morning, rather than supporting the local churches of that area.

    And IF they have a "worship service" (as I understand they will), they ARE a defacto church that day. A conference is one thing; a Sunday morning worship is something else.

    Still confused.

    I went to the SBC meeting in Atlanta a few years ago. Worship services are just a part of the schedule. Georgia Baptist Convention does the same. I believe they usually have a morning and evening service everyday. Not sure I would call it a defacto church. I see it more as a group of autonomous churches coming together to worship cooperatively. In fact, worship is probably the only thing they cooperate on. The rest of the time is spent on character assasination, name calling, politics, doctrinal statement wars and, well...you know...fellowship!

    That's the truth! The convention meets to see what kind of almost useless resolutions can be passed and to see whose name can be smeared this year. What a waste.
