The SBC Annual Meeting is being held in Indianapolis today and tomorrow.  You can visit the website here, on which you can see the schedule of events, watch the meeting through live streaming, view pictures, and read updated news stories about convention happenings.  Pray that the Lord will guide our convention to make wise decisions about our future.  May we become an increasingly gospel-shaped, gospel-sharing people.
