In his November 2004 report to the General Board of the American Baptist Churches, USA, A. Roy Medley, the general secretary of the denomination, spoke of "A Bridge People in a World of Wall-Builders." He called American Baptists to be bridge builders instead of wall builders, people who are dedicated to finding ways to bridge the gap in an increasingly polarized society. (1) As a pastor who is also an historian, I often think of those Baptist preachers who did exactly what Medley was asking American Baptists to do, Baptists who were not afraid to bridge the gap between opposing sides of contentious issues, who could see beyond the horizon of whatever pushed Baptists into separate corners. I wish I could sit down and speak with some of them today. They would surely have a good word to say in a time when Baptist life is very polarized. Their ministry became the bridge over which communication between two opposing sides could take place. Their lives became places of grace.
