Pastor Crosby’s call for cooperation and unity could not come at a better time for the Louisiana Baptist Convention.
I am thankful for Pastor Crosby’s bold stand against division and the spirit of un-cooperation that currently permeates Louisiana. I join others in awaiting such a call of cooperation from our Louisiana Baptist Convention Executive Director Dr. David Hankins. Dr. Hankins has previously stood for cooperation and today is a friend who can help and our man on deck. Louisiana Baptists need Dr. Hankins to join Pastor Crosby in a clarion call for unity in essentials and diversity in non-essentials. We await this strong leadership from our highest state leader.
