Calvary Baptist reaffirmed Robinson’s ordination June 15, prior to Pastor Amy Butler’s departure to become senior minister of the historic and progressive Riverside Church in New York City. ...

Heartbreaking! Two years ago i was in Switzerland, my home country,and did a bit of research about the Baptists. Not far from were I grew up there is a cave known as the "Baptists cave" were the believers had to hide from the authorities. I also visited the Emmental and learnt how much the early Baptists suffered for their faith. You can see some photos here: (Photos 9 to 22)

But sadly the local believers told me that now things have changed, young couples are breaking up etc. Something hardly heard of in the past. And some young people travel to the city to some seeker friendly congregations.etc

Maranatha! May the Lord return soon!
