Blest Be The Tie

I have a confession to make: I am a Baptist.  I’ve spent most of my life around Baptists. Over the years I’ve discovered that in Baptist churches there are a lot of things that are common to almost all of them.  Just like you can walk into a McDonald’s anywhere in the world and order a Big Mac and know it will taste the same, you can go to most Baptist churches and find a lot of the same things on...
