T. B. Maston Foundation for Christian Ethics

Comments

Had a great time Thursday evening with dear friends Suzii Paynter, David R. Currie, Lance Currie, Derek Hatch, Ferrell Foster, Kenneth Camp, Van Christian, Gary Gramling, Melody Maxwell, Randy Kennedy, and others.

Suzii keynoted the Lectures with a most challenging and informative lecture on clergy sexual abuse and the steps that the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship & Baptist Women in Ministry are taking to address and prevent it.

Lance spoke about the legacy of Phil Strickland, and David talked about what these Christian ethics lectures mean to him, emphasizing that what the Gospel is really all about is letting people know that they matter – in God’s eyes and, if we truly follow Christ, our own.

I’m especially thankful to Derek Hatch and Howard Payne for inviting me, in the wake of the end of Texas Baptists Committed last summer, to speak briefly about the legacy of TBC and David Currie, and how TBC’s work continues even after TBC is gone.

I've published my remarks in the accompanying Texas Baptists Committed blog post (TBC may be gone, but the blog is still breathing, barely).

Below is a short video clip from our Maston Foundation Young Maston Scholars retreat at Hardin-Simmons University's Logsdon Seminary in March 2019. In this clip, the Young Maston Scholars are preparing to enter City Light Community Ministry, sponsored by First Baptist Abilene. John Moore, Minister of Missions at FBC, led the retreat and provided the students with several hands-on opportunities to learn more about the community and the work being carried out by City Light.

Bill Jones blogs

I am republishing this article, written by my dad, A. Jase Jones, in 1985, because of its relevance to the current dispute over Rep. Omar's remarks concerning Israel, as well as our ongoing struggle with all forms of bigotry in this country.

His greatest challenge here is to Christians who "think thoughts, countenance attitudes, and express themselves . . . in ways that stoke the fires that power a future Holocaust's engines."

As he writes (and as we have especially seen revealed since the ascension of the man who today occupies the Oval Office), "People of the N***s' ilk are all around us, and, given the proper mental, emotional, economic, social, and political ingredients, they would spring up like Johnson grass in a wet Texas spring. Hatred, bigotry, prejudice, cruelty, and brutality lie just under humanity's skin."

The Importance of Orthodoxy and Orthopraxy - Word&Way

Excellent analysis, by Brian Kaylor, editor of Word&Way, of the importance of orthopraxy, which Christians too often neglect, underpinning our orthodoxy; this is the "both-and" approach to the Gospel that T. B. Maston lived and taught.

wordandway.org When Paul wrote to the believers in Corinth about the three great virtues — faith, hope and love — the great shaper of doctrines chose love as the greatest.

2017 TB Maston Foundation Biennial Christian Ethics Award Dinner 10/09/2017

Our biennial T. B. Maston Foundation Award Dinner in Dallas on Friday, October 6, was a wonderful gathering. We fellowshipped with new friends and old as our Foundation honored Suzii Paynter, executive coordinator of Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, with the T. B. Maston Christian Ethics Award, presented to her by George Mason, senior pastor of Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas.

We were inspired by Suzii's response and by our keynote speaker, Judge Wendell Griffen - pastor of New Millennium Church in Little Rock; and circuit judge, Sixth Judicial District, Fifth Division, State of Arkansas - whose address, "Prophetic Answers for Our Divisive Time," challenged Christians "to not be afraid to speak a different language about human suffering."

David Morgan, chair of our Maston Foundation trustees, emceed the dinner and set a beautiful tone for the evening.

We are grateful to David Clanton, former Maston Foundation trustee, for providing his professional photography services. David has photographed the past several biennial dinners, and provides these services as a gift to the Foundation. We are thankful for his gifts AND his gift.

Texas Baptists Committed

My friend Kenneth Camp at The Baptist Standard called today to interview me for this article. Thanks so much, Ken, for such a good and comprehensive article covering the decision by the TBC Board (in which I concurred) to cease operations at the end of July.

It's been my privilege - over the 6+ years of TBC Weekly Baptist Roundup - to read and link to more Ken Camp articles than either one of us can count. Ken is a journalist whose writing is not only top-shelf but accurate and ethical to the nth degree. He has continually highlighted the many good things going on in Texas Baptist life; and when the truth has not been pretty, he has told us the truth but always with grace and sensitivity.

Sarah Frances Anders was a longtime trustee of the T. B. Maston Foundation and the 1999 recipient of the Foundation's T. B. Maston Christian Ethics Award.

Thanks be to God for giving us Sarah Frances Anders; while we mourn our loss, we rejoice with her in her homegoing.
