From Religion and Ethics: Many people are Christians because of the work of C.S. Lewis. With wit and wisdom, Lewis imaginatively exploded the hollow pretensions of the secular.

North Americans at this week’s BWA annual gathering in Chile penciled in calendar dates of March 6-7, 2014, for the 50-year anniversary of the 1964 founding of the North American Baptist Fellowship. By Bob Allen North Americans attending the July 2-7 Baptist World Alliance annual gathering in Santiago, Chile, convened Thursday afternoon to preview plans for the 50th anniversary celebration of the North American Baptist Fellowship in 2014. The March 6-7, 2014, gathering in Philadelphia will also commemorate the 200th anniversary of the first national Baptist denomination in the United States, often called the Triennial Convention because it met every three years, established in that city in 1814. George Bullard, general secretary of the NABF, one of six regional fellowships of the 221-member body BWA, said the anniversary celebration will continue themes popularized in recent years by the New Baptist Covenant, an initiative to unite Baptists across racial and organizational lines across North America. Bullard said the gathering “will seek to focus on the missional past, present and future of Baptists throughout North America, while at the same time honoring the commitments of former USA President Jimmy Carter through his New Baptist Covenant events.” The NABF was formed in 1964 by nine major Baptist denominational groups, including both American Baptist Churches USA and the Southern Baptist Convention
