Tennessee Baptists will have an opportunity to celebrate the 188-year history of their Baptist newspaper on Sunday, Aug. 20, which is recognized as B&R Day on the Tennessee Baptist Convention calendar.
Every issue of the Baptist and Reflector shares stories of how Tennessee Baptists are impacting spiritual lostness and advancing God’s Kingdom.
As an editorial staff, we are doing what Tennessee Baptists have indicated they wanted. We are telling your stories — stories of how your church is making an impact for the Kingdom, stories people probably won’t read anywhere else.
The B&R is one of only less than five papers that publish a print issue at least twice a month. Most papers are online only. We need your help to continue to be able to provide a print issue. Postage continues to increase.
We want to see our subscription and website usage increase over the next few years, not for the sake of numbers, but to help Tennessee Baptists see how their Cooperative Program giving is impacting lives.
Exciting days lie ahead for Tennessee Baptists. We are asking our current readers and our churches to help us enlist more readers and subscribers in order to be inspired to do more to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in a state that desperately needs Him.
On B&R Day we are asking churches that don’t provide papers for their members to order free copies of the Aug. 16 issue. This is an excellent way to let your members see what the B&R is all about. An individual subscription is only $18 for one year. A church rate of only $13 a year also is available.
If your church subscribes for those who ask for it, order some extra copies for members who have joined in the last year or so and may not even be aware that the paper is available.
You can order free copies online at www. tnbaptist.org/ brday or mail the form found on this page.
The Baptist and Reflector is not my paper. It belongs to every Tennessee Baptist.
I thank you, our loyal readers, for being a part of the B&R family. Help us to draw in more family members! B&R
