Disunity Among Baptists in Nation of GeorgiaOctober 01, 2015
EthicsDaily.com ran a two-part series I wrote on disunity among Baptists in the former Soviet-bloc nation of Georgia. I received comments from three key Georgian Baptist leaders as I attempted to sort through the controversy.

As seems to often be the case among Christians these days, the dividing issue is homosexuality. What makes the case in Georgia even more tragic is that Baptists are a small and sometimes persecuted minority group. I hope all involved can find a way to work together and strengthen their unique and important witness.
