Deweese, Charles W., Baptist History and Heritage


A three-time-zone life requires a careful balancing act. If we spend all of our time in yesteryear, we become irrelevant. If we spend all of our time thinking about the future, we waste our heritage. If we spend all of our time in the present, we abandon origins and possibilities.

Most BH&HS members know about our efforts in the past: our journal, pamphlets, "books, annual meetings, and other publications and events. Let me introduce you to our newest, most present resource: A How-to Kit for Your Church's History. This kit serves as an excellent resource for church history committees, churches celebrating anniversaries, and Baptist history programs that serve local-church history interests.

The most important item in the kit is A How-to Manual for Your Church's History. This manual provides up-to-date guidelines for church history committee work. It shows how to celebrate a church anniversary, how to write and publish a church's history, how to observe Baptist Heritage Sunday, how to locate and preserve church records, how to display and exhibit a church's history, and how to communicate, photograph, and dramatize a church's story.

Scheduled for release on December 1, 2002, the kit will sell for $27.95. However, orders postmarked by November 30, 2002, will pay only $24.95 per kit. You can order by calling 800-966-2278. Or copy, complete, and submit the order form on cover page 3 of this issue.
