MBC putting money where they think peace is

Here’s an interesting story about the Missouri Baptist Convention’s latest efforts to bridge the gap between conservative elements in the state Baptist body. It appears that the Executive Board has approved taking $100,000 from reserves to spend on bringing conflicting sides together.   

Interestingly, the Peace Committee initially said $250,000 was needed to bring about peace in the state convention. The price of bringing about peace at this amount proved too high, so the lower amount of $100K was adopted instead.
