The Southern Baptist's New President on the Emerging Church

"I see many valuable contributions to the SBC coming from the Emergent Leaders Movement. I believe it is a positive thing to see a broader number of participants in our convention’s direction. I personally applaud this movement."

from an interview of Dr Frank Page, who was elected this week as the SBC's new president.

Now that's not a quote you see every day coming from a Southern Baptist President!

Time Magazine says that bloggers elected this president (and then admits it's a bit more complicated).

Also, see the NY Times article on the election (free registration required),
