    I'm halfway following.

    Kind of sounds like business as usual for an SBC convention. Good stuff, bad stuff, media focus on the most fringe elements, real problems, fake problems, etc.

    My parents have been attending, but they're manning a booth, not actually spending much if any time in the sessions.

    I've only been following closely for about 10 years, but this seems to be the most divided I've seen the convention.

    I'm not SBC but I've been following with a bit of interest. I think my own denomination can learn from the good and the bad going on in SBC right now. I like Greear though.

    What's not getting near enough attention is thedang Calvinists taking over the denomination.

    What’s been interesting is equivocation if Calvinists and progressives.

    Why?

    (I'm a 5 pointer and I'd rather not get into an argument online instead of over beers but I am curious)

    Not a Baptist, anymore, but maybe what is not getting enough attention is JESUS. That seems to b the problem in the congregations I have been associated with anyway.
