Governor Jay Inslee recently issued a “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order for the entire state of Washington.
Now, Bellevue police are trying to develop a system for residents to report violations. Reports that citizens file on the MyBellevue app will create a heat map illustrating where there are potentially illegal gatherings or business activity.
Under the current order, people are allowed to leave their homes for certain activities, such as grocery shopping, going to medical appointments, picking up or delivering take-out food, heading to work at an essential business or leaving the house to do exercise.
Police advise residents and visitors to comply with the governor’s order, to protect the health of the community. “The vast majority of people in our community are following the “Stay Home” order and are being safe,” remarked Chief Steve Mylett. “But we need your help in reporting violations where there may be a large amount of people at risk.”
The city website offers a link to the app — MyBellevue portal.
It provides instructions on how to use it:
- Log onto the app on your phone or online at MyBellevue.
- Click on new request.
- Click Report gatherings.
- Click issue location and move the pin over the location or add the address manually.
- Click submit.
“As officers are available, they will respond to these reports and use this opportunity to educate and instruct people about the state’s “Stay Home” mandate,” clarified Major Andrew Popochock, who is in charge of the patrol division. “We are not going to arrest people; we are educating them to stay home.”
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
