United in Diversity: Our Baptist Witness Past and Present — An article in the CBF Illuminations Series
What began as a request from a local church for a monthly church newsletter essay about Baptist history and identity has now taken shape as the BH&HS Church Newsletter Series. The essays are freely available for use by churches. For the month of December we recommend the essay entitled “Baptists and Christmas.”
