Support the BJC on Giving Tuesday!


Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday and many good causes are available for you to support.  One of my favorites is the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty.  I have the privilege of serving on the Board and the Executive Committee for the BJC.  The BJC's mission is to defend and extend God-given religious liberty for all, furthering the Baptist heritage that champions the principle that religion must be freely exercised, neither advanced nor inhibited by government. 

The Baptist Joint Committee is composed of representatives of 15 national, state and regional bodies in the United States and supported by thousands of churches and individuals across the country.  We work with a wide range of religious organizations providing education about and advocacy for religious liberty. The BJC is the only religious agency devoted solely to religious liberty and the institutional separation of church and state. 

While primarily supported by Baptists, the BJC fights for religious liberty for all, including Jewish, Muslim and a host of Christian groups, who count on the BJC for leadership.  If you are looking for a worthy cause for #GivingTuesday, I would encourage you to consider the Baptist Joint Committee.  

For those unfamiliar with #GivingTuesday, it is a day to celebrate giving and a wonderful opportunity to both give and give back to the nonprofit organizations that mean the most to you. Thank you for supporting the BJC on #GivingTuesday and every day!
