It’s been a while…

I've been insanely busy with work and travel.

Been meaning to comment on this news report: President of Large Southern Baptist Congregation Split Over Politics.

Folded into the Rev. Frank Page's wallet is a yellow scrap of paper with the date and time he is to speak with yet another Republican candidate for the White House.

He already has visited one GOP front-runner over breakfast at a country club and met another at the headquarters of a car dealership in his home state.

The angst seems to be over the question of how much overt political activity is seemly. How many contenders should be granted an audiance, and which ones?

I would suggest that for guidance pastors turn to scripture. Given ample opportunity to inject themselves into politics, Jesus and the apostles refrained. So what political leader should next in Frank Pages's daytimer? How about none at all? How about—here's a novel thought—concentrating on the preaching of the gospel?
