This coming June, two important Baptist bodies will meet here in Washington, DC, and, although they are separate organizations and will have separate meetings, there will also be a shared meeting. Behind the scenes there is a little talk that the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and the American Baptist Churches, USA, should merge. Any opinions out there on this? By "opinions" I mean not only "should they" but also "will they"? There is already one area of institutional cooperation, by the way. CBF uses the American Baptists' pension program, the Ministers and Missionaries Benefit Board. No greater glue is there than this, that we trust them to manage our retirement funds!
