    State denominational leaders say it's a key concept for Baptists, like sharing casseroles and loving one another:

    Baptist Press report from Raytown, Mo.

    "Missouri Baptist Convention Executive Director John Yeats said in his address to the convention....'The secret to godly synergy is loving one another instead of ourselves'....Yeats said that the Lord's mission to transform lives and communities around Missouri and across the globe demands such synergy."

    "MBC President Ken Parker likewise called them toward synergy for the advance of God's kingdom. 'We don't have the luxury of fighting over secondary issues today. Those days are gone,' Parker said, adding, 'This is not a time to throw stones, but to exchange casseroles.'"

    Maybe they will throw casserole dishes. What is secondary doctrine? Homosexual issues? Abortion?

    Oh no!:

    "During their meeting, Missouri Baptists also welcomed several special guests, including Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens. In his address, Greitens affirmed his commitment to protect the unborn and to defend religious liberty, and he invited Missouri Baptists to join him in doing so. Afterward, Parker led messengers and guests in prayer for the governor and his family. The MBC presented the governor with a specially framed picture of fireworks exploding above the Missouri State Capitol that was photographed by Steven Strauch, director of missions for the Laclede Baptist Association. Other special guests during the convention included Tom Elliff, former president of the International Mission Board; Kevin Ezell, president of the North American Mission Board"

    "In his first interview since acknowledging an extramarital affair, Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens said Saturday that there was 'no blackmail' and 'no threat of violence' by him in what he described as a months-long 'consensual relationship' with his former hairdresser."

    Regarding "an encounter in his St. Louis home...Greitens did not directly say 'yes' or 'no' when asked Saturday if he had bound and blindfolded and taken a photo of the woman. But he firmly denied that he had attempted to coerce the woman, or that he or anyone associated with him had paid her to be silent. 'This was a consensual relationship,' Greitens said."

    "His attorney, Jim Bennett, told CBS St. Louis affiliate KMOV....'There is zero truth to any suggestion that Governor Greitens is resigning....He is at work today and will continue to serve as governor.'"

    "Greitens said he recently received a call from that friend encouraging him to hang in there. 'I'm very confident that God has a way of bringing good from difficulty. God has a way of helping people in the midst of pain to emerge with wisdom,' Greitens said. 'God has a way of helping you to move through suffering and actually become stronger.'"
