I agree with your evaluation of the GCR. In the end all lies in the hands of the messengers of the SBC. Transparency is very important. If the task force leans in the wrong direction according to the majority of SBC church members we can still hold the line on conservative principles Through the messengers. Those local Associations practicing good stewardship shouldn't have anything to worry about. Like any budget there come times when we must re-evaluate our ability to see that priorities are met. This happens to be one of those times. Missionaries should be on planes going toward the mission field not on planes flying back home due to a lack of funds. I will be praying for unity among the brethren as this major undertaking unfolds. I pray all believers will join me.
