I meant to share this post from colleague Dennis Johnson earlier in the week
October 4th, the feast day of St. Francis and the 161st anniversary of the birth of Walter Rauschenbusch, who wrote in 1906:
“Baptists are not a perfect denomination. We are capable of being just as narrow and small as anybody . . . I do not want to foster Baptist self-conceit, because thereby I should grieve the Spirit of Christ. I do not want to make Baptists shut themselves up in their little clamshells and be indifferent to the ocean outside of them. I am a Baptist, but I am more than a Baptist. All things are mine; whether Francis of Assisi, or Luther, or Knox, or Wesley; all things are mine because I am Christ’s.”
Hoping today for more daughters and sons of Rauschenbusch who are more than Baptists.
