This summer members of the Southern Baptist Convention will convene in Nashville, TN for the SBC Annual Convention. Last week I saw a Facebook post from our State Convention's Ministry Wives leader encouraging us to reserve our place at the Oklahoma Convention's table at the popular Ministry Wives Luncheon. However, when I saw that Jen … Continue reading Why I Cannot Recommend Attending the SBC21 Ministry Wives Luncheon
