I suppose that there are genii in the SBC, though in short supply and we may need some fresh, new thinking if an acceptable name is to be found (or is already found, registered, and lying dormant for just the right moment when the Illustrious Informal Name Committee will bestow it upon a convention of sleepless, hand wringing, nail biting followers who just haven't had any epiphanies of appropriate appelations and dare I suggest that the disciples of alliteration may be lurking about on this prepared for a mighty mammoth alliterative blow?)
My list of possibilities, annotated (and we're keeping 'Baptist' until the bitter end):
Fellowship; as in Cooperative Baptist Fellowship?
Convention; ain't new, ain't sexy.
Association; already have these and they are becoming somewhat dinosaurish.
Body; as in 'deacon body'? A bit of an image to overcome, I think.
Christians; well, it fits some SBCers.
Union; SBCers are mostly GOP and eschew untions.
Confab; like, around the water cooler, or pastor's conferences.
Conference; we certainly do a lot of this.
Churches; allegedly the key part of SBC life.
Federation; a bit too retro CCCP for me.
Alliance; as in Alliance of Extremely Liberal Baptists?
Resource; too LifeWayish.
Global; Well, ok, but doesn't excite me.
American; already have one of these.
North American; maybe, kind of clunky.
International; got an entity with this.
Galactic; ask Bobby Welch on this.
Universal; theological seppuku
General; a bit too martial.
Great Commission; haven't we worn this out?
Evangelical; major baggage here
Conservative; already have one of these.
Biblical; redundant, though a third "B" would be neat: "BBB"
Cooperative; as in Cooperative Baptist Fellowship? (Maybe they're the geniuses)
World; not broad enough to hold all the SBC egos
Kingdom; so...monarchial ('Oligarchy' would be a good fit, though)
Plodder confesses to being seriously flummoxed on the name and yields to his betters.
