Thanks. I pray that it does something too. One of the frustrating things is not knowing what it may have done. I have not received any response to the letter, and I'm guessing that I won't.
I've had some wandering thoughts about the original action that caused me to write to Rev. Sanderson. If this particular Baptist Convention would expel churches for being friendly to LGBT folks, what would happen if we all showed up at their church some Sunday morning? Not to demonstrate or make any kind of statement, just to join them in worship. If the greeters shake our hands, would that be considered as a friendly action worthy of expulsion from the convention? If several gay couples went to visit Rev. Sanderson's church, would he be obligated to prevent us from worshipping with them? If I lived closer, I think I might try to pull that off.
