An offer you should not refuse 

ATTENTION PASTORS. I’ll say it again – ATTENTION PASTORS! In the church where you serve, how many people have joined the church from a non-Southern Baptist background in the past year? Are you sensitive to their need for more information about Baptists than church members who have been part of your flock for many years? The same is true of someone you just led to Christ. They know almost nothing about things we take for granted every day. They need help! The Baptist State Convention of North Carolina is making you an offer you should not refuse. They will pay for a one-year subscription to the Biblical Recorder for any adult who joins your church from a non-Baptist background. Please read the story that explains more about this generous offer. It’s one more way your N.C. convention leaders are willing to serve you and strengthen your church. It’s also a statement from our leadership about the value of the Biblical Recorder in the process of building strong disciples of Jesus Christ.

OOPS! We admit it, we are human, and we make mistakes. If you received an unfinished copy of this edition of the BRweekly Tuesday night, it was a mistake. We apologize. It’s a reminder that one keystroke can make a big difference. I’m sure you know what I mean. One misspoken word, one keystroke, one oversight in ministry, has the potential for harm. We hope our "stray e-newsletter" was not an inconvenience. Thanks for understanding. We’ll try not to send you an extra copy of BRweekly again. But, we are human, so thanks for the grace, too.

Did you read my editorial in this week’s edition of the Biblical Recorder? I hope it will be an encouragement to you. I am greatly encouraged when I remember that Jesus holds everything together. Celebrate the birth of our awesome Savior with joy and confidence that in a world where everything is falling apart, Jesus is still Lord!

There are many missions stories in the current issue of the Recorder (and other recent issues) that will strengthen your church's missions vision. Read them and share them with your Bible study group and other friends. Please give generously and encourage your church family to give very generously to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. The need is greater than ever. Brothers and sisters, we can do this!
