This is a tough summer for baptist heroes. First Wayne Allen, then James Semple, now Calvin Miller. All have died.
I will take only a moment on this night to speak my admiration of Calvin Miller. He was a pastor who built great churches, a thinker who thought large thoughts, a poet, an author, a scholar. Baptists have only had one Calvin Miller and I do not see another coming our way.
Opinions expressed here are mine alone.
