I am encouraged by these goodwill gestures, even though on this side of the wall it feels as if we have quite a bit of work to do before we unveil the new Florida Baptist Witness print edition and website: goFBW.com The date for that grand unveiling has been set for Nov. 6, and it is not too late for you to request free copies of that issue for distribution on Witness Sunday, Nov. 9. Everyone who is attending this year's Florida Baptist State Convention in Lakeland on Nov. 10-11 will be given a copy as well.
