ATLANTA-With a closing challenge to love God and love others, former President Jimmy Carter capped the three-day Celebration of the New Baptist Covenant Feb. 1 in Atlanta, ending a day that focused on future unified action and developing response to immigration, hunger, health care and other social issues.

"I feel that this New Baptist Covenant assembly is based on … love God and love the person standing in front of you at any time," Carter said.

ATLANTA (ABP)-The only way for a broad group of Baptists to move toward their goal of unity is with a spirit of humility and forgiveness, former President Bill Clinton told participants of the Celebration of a New Baptist Covenant Feb. 1.

"If we are going to form a covenant that can embrace the whole body of the Baptist [tradition], which every Christian can identify with and every good human being on earth can applaud, it is the spirit with which we go forward and our determination to offer specific things we can do as the children of God that will determine how it comes out in the end," Clinton said.

ATLANTA-When it comes to spiritual discipline, simply spending time in God's presence is the primary requirement, seminary professors Linda Bryan and Loyd Allen agreed.

Bryan and Allen led a session titled "The Spirit of the Lord Upon Me" during the New Baptist Covenant gathering in Atlanta, Feb. 1

I finally got this to working.

I thought pic 323 was Grand, Bob Stephenson and his Divinity School scholarship recipients for the event.

Special place in heaven for an Oilman like Stephenson.

I really liked the picture of Jimmy Allen, #201. Is he still at Big Canoe? Dr. Allen preached a monumental sermon at the Baptist Retreat in Bertchesgaden, Germany in 1982, on "Lostness" and described his experience in a blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. He has lived throught a literal "Hell on Earth" and is a strong witness of God's Grace. I also liked the picture of Carter, Campolo, and Clinton(sounds like a law firm in New Jersey.)
