I will write a long post about my trip to Louisiana later, but something caught my eye that I thought I would mention now.
I grew up, sometimes, Baptist – Southern Baptist. We were strictly anti-Catholic, etc…, so it surprised me to see that Broadmoor Baptist Church, in Baton Rouge was celebrating Advent. Granted, Advent is not solely a Catholic holiday – the Catholic ‘lite’, such as the Lutherans, have always celebrated it. (Zwingli, the Switz Reformer of whom very little is known, seemed to have no problem with it, although it was not found in the bible)
It seems that in the last 15 years, they have left the SBC and joined the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. I wonder if the move to liberalism has contributed to their move to Advent?
Dunno – just caught me eye. I am not Baptist, so don’t get me wrong – celebrate what you want, but it is just odd.
