    One of my responsibilities as President of the Southern Baptist Convention is to appoint a Committee on Resolutions for our upcoming annual meeting in Columbus, Ohio. This very important and strategic committee works diligently between now and when they give their report to our convention on Tuesday afternoon, June 16.

    Jeana and I have just returned from twelve days away, with much of that time in the heart of the mission field. As we conversed one-on-one and in several meetings with our missionaries in challenging fields all over the Middle East, we were able to hear their hearts loud and clear. As I have thought about this upon my return home, I feel it is incumbent upon me to share what I am able to within the boundaries of security.

    After receiving nominations from across our convention and working through our own processes of evaluating and examining candidates, it is with great privilege today that I announce the 2015 Committee on Committees.

    Today, I want to give a progress report about the actions we have taken to address these things over the past five months. The Southern Baptist Convention is a very large, complex ministry network. Things take time, but I thought it would be wise to share the progress I feel we have made since the fall.

    Dear President Obama:

    Since ISIS is a continuing threat to world peace in a way unknown to us since the Nazis of World War II, we humbly call upon you to use the influence and power of your distinguished office to take the necessary actions now in this urgent hour to bring an end to these human atrocities.
