Sabbath Recorder, April 2009

The April, 2009, Sabbath Recorder is available online here as a pdf.

This Sabbath Recorder has several articles about Baptist and Seventh Day Baptist history. The occasion is the celebration of the generally recognized anniversary of the appearance of Baptists as a distinct group among other English Protestants. Two articles describe some of the issues surrounding that event as well as describing the "Landmark" Baptist position. Another view of Baptist origins was previously noted on this blog here.

Continuing the historical emphasis, there are articles describing the 175th anniversary of the Hebron, PA, SDB church and the 300th anniversary of the oldest, continuously existing American Seventh Day Baptist congregation, The First Seventh Day Baptist Church of Hopkinton in Ashaway, RI.

This Recorder also includes:
  • a biography of Rev. Alexander Campbell by Don Sanford
  • an argument for keeping the "Baptist" name by Rob Appel
  • the monthly column by President Ed Cruzan
  • and much more.
The Sabbath Recorder is the magazine of the Seventh Day Baptist General Conference and has been regularly published in some form since 1844.
