A Guest Post by Eric C. Redmond
Eric C. Redmond is the author of Where Are All the Brothers? Straight Answers to Men’s Questions About the Church (Crossway, 2008). He most recently served as the 2007-2008 Second Vice-President of the Southern Baptist Convention. He has previously posted other thoughts on the electionat his blog, A Man from Issachar. He and his wife, Pamela, are adoptive parents who have five children in their home and two children in heaven.
And I’m looking forward to the other posts. Hopefully we’ll hear from Thabiti . . . I heard or saw somewhere that Mr. Obama said something about Jeremiah Wright being the best the black church had to offer. If my suspicion is right, we’ll be seeing that he’s wrong on that one on Justin’s blog today. And what’s beautiful is that these brothers (Thabiti and Eric) don’t see themselves primarily as pastors in the “black church.”
May the Lord indeed grant that with this election we can transcend race–both in the church and in the wider society.
