Rev. Dwight McKissic Proposes Resolution on Kingdom Unity in the SBC and the Nation to the SBC June 2017 Phoenix Resolutions Committee

William Dwight McKissic Sr.

I plan to present a “Resolution On Kingdom Unity In The SBC And The Nation” to the SBC June 2017 Phoenix Resolutions Committee that if accepted and adhered to will advance the Southern Baptist Convention toward the goal(s) of reconciliation, healing, unity, cross-cultural respect, appreciation for freedom of expression, and diversity of viewpoints; based on one’s convictions, conscious, cultural considerations, and more importantly—the Spirit of Christ.
