In an article following the conference, Dr. Rainer called on us as Southern Baptists to begin building bridges among our various groups. He states,
I am part of a denomination that has many tracks, but few bridges. And if we don't start building some bridges quickly, God's hand of blessing may move beyond us.
Later he says,
I was and still am a firm supporter of the conservative resurgence. I knew we could not continue down the path we were headed. But it seems as if we can't stop fighting even though the battle for the Bible is over and won. I understand the risk I am taking by writing these words. But silence is not an option. I must be about building bridges.
I for one agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment of the article and will gladly join Dr. Rainer in building bridges.
