Sabbath Recorder July/August 2008

The July/August, 2008, Sabbath Recorder is available online here as a pdf.

This month's issue of The Sabbath Recorder includes an article by Jim Goodrich of North Loup, Nebraska, about public service. Two quotations:
I believe strongly that everyone has some civic responsibility. It may not be to hold office, but those of us who are eligible should at least vote.

It may be your vote that enables Christians to hold positions of authority in government. It may be your vote that prevents those with a “humanist” agenda from gaining power. It may your vote that defeats laws that undermine the church and family in your community and nation. [....]

Positions of service should never be taken lightly. Wherever you find your place in public life, it is important to focus on the directive from Paul to the Colossians: “And whatsoever you do in word or in deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him” (Col. 3:17).

There is also a fine article by David Gushee, from the Associated Baptist Press, titled "How are Christians accountable to each other?"

And much else.

The Sabbath Recorder is the magazine of the Seventh Day Baptist General Conference and has been regularly published in some form since 1844.
