    McKissic resigns as seminary trustee

    Posted on Jun 22, 2007 | by Jerry Pierce GRAPEVINE, Texas (BP)--Dwight McKissic has resigned from the trustee board of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, citing "too much mental, physical, emotional and even spiritual energy" spent on his role in a conflict over speaking in tongues and private prayer language at the seminary in the past year.

    McKissic, pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, Texas, emphasized his love for the seminary and its president, Paige Patterson, in a lengthy conciliatory letter June 20 to trustee chairman Van McClain and copied to Patterson, SBC President Frank Page, SBC Executive Committee President Morris H. Chapman and three trustees.
