Mystified over attempts to reduce Recorder funding

After 67 years as a N.C. Baptist - and proud of every step along the way - it still mystifies me as to the attempts to reduce Recorder income. This year's efforts by a pastor from Seagrove were typical. Of course, it failed. All efforts to do this have failed. A pastor from Dublin, who supported this effort, was wrong when he said, "the Recorder brings more of a spirit of division than unity." Not surprisingly, the motion to cut funding was defeated, achieving a mere 30 percent of the vote.

In these days of continuously higher postage rates, the Recorder performs an impossible job by keeping its rates as low as it does. Let's hope 2003 will be the last time any effort will be made to reduce the needed funds of a paper devoted to Baptist distinctives for 170 years.
