Global Baptists Gather in Thailand for BWA Gathering

About 300 Baptists from nearly 50 nations traveled to Bangkok, Thailand for the 2017 annual gathering of the Baptist World Alliance. This event is one of my favorite times of the year and I'm excited to again report on it for Word&Way, Churchnet, and EthicsDaily.com. I'm also on the BWA's General Council, Communications Advisory Committee, Award Committee, and Commission on Christian Ethics.

My first report on the gathering is at EthicsDaily.com. The piece, Global Baptists Gather in Thailand for BWA Gathering, introduces the gathering and notes a focus on learning from Baptists living in predominately-Buddhist nations. The photo that ran with the piece is one I took of Aye Min of Myanmar and Graham Walker of the U.S. talking about Baptist-Buddhist dialogue.
