News Coverage of Fred Luter’s Election

I would not have missed being in New Orleans for the election of Fred Luter for anything. One thing that I did miss, however, was the television news coverage of the historic election. The convention meetings kept me busy, and there was very little time to track news reports. I can imagine that many other Southern Baptists at the meeting missed those reports as well. So I’m posting here a round-up of some news coverage that folks may have missed if they were attending the convention. See below.
