Please click the link below and read the article by my former colleague in the UK, Sian Murray Williams:

Sian and I worked together in my early years with the Baptist Missionary Society before she moved on to seminary study.  Now she is a Baptist Minister and a Tutor at Bristol Baptist College in the south west of England.

I would love to know your thoughts or reactions in response to what she has written.  Sian was contributing to a collection Baptist Voices trying to chart the road ahead while reflecting on 400 years of Baptist history in the UK.

Sometimes Baptists don’t criticize themselves enough, but often they criticize themselves too much.  Sian is a very positive person who is proud about much the church of Jesus Christ does, so seems to have been trying to create balance.

I would have used different examples, but I was moved by the overall point Sian was making.  What do you think?
