The Southern Baptist Convention has a problem.

“We’ve always had a global mission and a global task and we need to seriously look at the question of does our name — ‘Southern’ — cause us to be hindered from accomplishing that global task that God has given us,” he asked.

The best part about this? They want your suggestions:

SBC President Bryant Wright is seeking your input on a new name for the SBC. These suggestions will be compiled and given to the committee or group assigned to explore a name change.

So send them your ideas — click on “Suggest a new name for the SBC” — and let us know what you’re submitting in the comments! They might reject them, but I’ll give you points for creativity.
