New issue of fellowship! magazine displays diversity within Cooperative Baptist Fellowship

The December/January issue of fellowship! magazine is now online and will soon arrive in mailboxes. Read the online version here or below via our e-reader.

fellowship - DecJan - Cover

From the Editor

By Aaron Weaver

Echoing retired Mercer University professor Walter B. Shurden — one of the greatest shapers of Baptist thought of our time — CBF Executive Coordinator Suzii Paynter writes on p. 2, “One essential quality of our Fellowship identity is diversity in expression and common devotion in love.”

The pages of this issue display the diversity that exists throughout the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. From the stories of a solar-powered church in North Carolina (pp. 6-7) and a multicultural/multilingual congregation located on a Native American reservation with a Jewish liturgy-based worship style (pp. 14-15) to a feature on field personnel investing their lives in the future of the marginalized and persecuted Roma people (pp. 16-19), we see just a few examples of the diversity that is so essential to our Fellowship identity.

To repeat Shurden and Suzii, diversity is not devastating, but instead flows from our passion for freedom. So, let’s celebrate together the beauty in our diversity.

Read these pages. Share our stories. Spread the word.
