As the Board of Directors of Baptists Today meets today, and is joined this evening by many others to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this uniquely independent news journal, I am reminded again of the great contributions of dedicated lay persons.
Our board is comprised primarily of lay leaders. Board chair Winnie Williams is a leader in the First Baptist Church of Clemson, S.C. Vice chair Gary Eubanks is a layman in the First Baptist Church of Marietta, Ga.
Likewise, much of the financial support that enables Baptists Today to carry out its mission comes from the generous hands of supportive lay persons. In addition to their financial support, so many active lay persons also affirm and encourage our work throughout the years.
There is much on my mind as we go into this big event in Atlanta tonight — but one thought is of gratitude for those many rock-solid, caring, and dependable lay leaders whose strong support is always there.
