This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend a small reunion of some of my Samford University alumnae friends. We gathered in Auburn, Ala., and, as a part of our time together, attended the Auburn- Samford game. (As I expected, Samford lost the ballgame. As I did not expect, Samford was not so soundly beaten that it was an embarrassment.)
As we gathered at the Samford Tailgate during the pre-game festivities, I had the opportunity to speak with Dr Wayne Flynt. Several of we Samford alums had had the privilege of sitting in his classes at Samford many years ago.
I am honored to have known this Baptist prophet who has taken such a strong stand on Alabama’s recent embarrassing immigration laws. http://www.ethicsdaily.com/baptist-prophet-squares-off-against-baptist-governor-in-alabama-cms-18833 (He also told me that the only reason he had stayed in Auburn was the presence of a CBF church – First Baptist, Auburn – where he is a member.)
He is a man of integrity and of courage. May his tribe increase.
