Committees elected, theme interpretation sermon, extended time of prayer all a part of SBC morning session

BALTIMORE (TAB) — A “God-ordained time” of prayer marked the morning session on the second day of the Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting June 11. For more than 40 minutes messengers and participants in Baltimore, Md., were focused on praying for personal revival, church revival, denominational prayer and national revival, as directed by Fred Luter Jr. The Committee on Committees also reported that 31 of the elected members are church or denominational leaders, 37 are laypeople or not church or denominational leaders, 25 percent are women, with total ages ranging from 22 to 82. K. Marshall Williams Sr., pastor of Nazarene Baptist Church, Philadelphia, Penn., presented a theme interpretation sermon on revival in connection with the annual meeting theme “Restoration & Revival Through Prayer.” The Committee on the Order of Business referred three motions from Monday to SBC entities. Seven motions were ruled as not in order. One motion, challenging churches to pray regularly for the persecuted church and specifically for the kidnapped Nigerian school girls, was adopted and led to the extended time of prayer during the annual meeting.
