Great Commission Desurgence?

Is it a Desurgence or a Resurgence?. As of this writing the Southern Baptist Convention’s Pray4GCR had signed up 5,458 prayer partners

That’s 0.034% of the roughly 16 million Southern Baptists and fewer than the 6,182 regular attendees at GCR task force chairman Ronnie Floyd’s church.

Yet Floyd offered the number of registrants to the Florida Baptist Witness as evidence that “God is making His will known to those leaders about their future. Therefore, I trust God and trust them.”

Even if God shows a certain lack of initial enthusiasm for the project? Or is this simply Southern Baptists responding to the dearth of straight GCR answers? Gobbledygook won’t get it with practical-minded Southern Baptists, we fear.
