The Washington Post has a fascinating profile of Southern Baptist pastor Eric Redmond.
“The young Temple Hills minister is the highest-ranking African American in the 16 million-member denomination and a representative of the changing times confronting Southern Baptists and other mostly white Protestant denominations. . .
“These days, the faith that was once proudly white now touts the fact that almost 20 percent of its congregations are predominantly black, Latino or Asian. Hundreds of minorities serve in leadership posts in its state conventions, seminaries and other organizations.”
Redmond’s blog is here: A Man from Issachar.
