Danny Akin, the President of Southeastern Theological Seminary, has posted an encouraging review of the Southern Baptist Convention last week in Louisville, Kentucky. Akin writes:

It is possible years from now that we will look back on the 2009 SBC in Louisville and see it as a historic watershed moment in our history.  It is possible that on the 30th anniversary of the beginning of the Conservative Resurgence (CR), we will have witnessed the natural and hoped for outcome of the CR in the genesis of a new movement of God among His people in a Great Commission Resurgence (GCR) that signaled a new day in the advance of the gospel across North America and to all the nations of the earth.  I know this is my heart’s cry and desire.

Southern Baptists recently concluded what I thought was one of the most encouraging annual meetings we have had in years. I believe there are many reasons Southern Baptists should be excited about the direction the SBC is heading.
