 President of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission
Next Weekend, We Welcomea High-Impact Leader
 Next weekend as we remember our nation’s independence, it is mygreat joy to welcome
Dr. Richard Land
to our pulpit. Since 1988,he has served as President of our Southern Baptist Convention
Ethicsand Religious Liberty Commission
. With an undergraduate degreefrom Princeton and a doctorate from Oxford, he is one of the most brilliant thinkers on the American scene and a powerful spokesmanfor our conservative and biblical values. He has represented us inthe halls of Congress, before U.S. Presidents, and in the media on various talk showsand in numerous articles. He was featured in Time magazine as one of the “twenty-vemost inuential evangelicals in America.” He hosts three nationally syndicated radio programs, speaking clearly and powerfully to the social, ethical, and public policy issuesof our nation.Richard’s latest book is The Divided States of America? What Liberals and Conservativesare Missing in the God-and-Country Shouting Match! He takes to task both from theright and the left those who would misunderstand the issue of “separation of church andstate.”Dr. Land will speak in all of our services from biblical themes and then will do a free-owing question and answer time following the services during what would normally bethe Bible & Life Group hour. This is a rare opportunity for us to dialogue with a high-impact leader who understands the “ins and outs” of our current political situation andethical challenges.When the founders of our nation made “a statement of independence” in the nal sectionof the Declaration of Independence, they afrmed “self-evident truths” and our “Creator”God. They were “appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world.” They closed with “arm reliance on the protection of divine providence.” Our nation began with these godly professions by many men who were themselves godly. Certainly our Pledge of Allegianceis not unconstitutional with its wording, “under God.” As Dr. Land wrote in an article:“One nation under God is not forcing every American to admit the existence of deity or to worship a Supreme Being. It is to acknowledge…that our Republic is not supreme,despite our allegiance to it, but there is One who is.” May we declare our independencethis weekend from fear and secular thinking, not “wringing our hands” but “lifting up holyhands” in prayer for our nation and leaders “in faith and truth” (1 Timothy 2:1-8).
Guest Reception
There is a guest reception in the Commons immediately following the Saturday nightand Sunday morning worship services. Come and meet Dr. Wicker.

This very personal account by the woman who would become his wife revealsa missionary story that is truly a heroic spiritual pilgrimage. Original writings from Jim Elliothimself are included and give insight into the heartof a man who could pray, “Give me not a long life, but a full one,like you, Lord Jesus.” It is considered a modern Christian classic.
