Are state conventions headed in the direction Bryant Wright, our new SBC president, said they should be headed – towards being cut in half?
Perhaps people in North Carolina have something to think about. Check this story concerning a motion made by a bald, goateed NC Baptist. Perhaps a NClinian would tell me where they think this is going.

I'm not terribly optimistic that this is what will happen. Organizations, even Baptist(perhaps especially Baptist) ones seems to have a modicum of institutional inertia and resistance to change.
We will see.
