Christian Life Chair Reports
A Christian and Baptist Worldview on Current News, Issues, Controversies ...
by Michael G. Maness - The New Bethel Association one of three within Sabine-Neches Baptist Area www.SNBArea.org. At a designated church, the pastors and church leaders report and plan. The Christian Life Chair Reports are on news, ethical issues, and cultural trends affecting the Christian life.
Unfortunately, some are missing, for I did not plan on keeping them early, and frequently I had used previous ones as templates for the next, and therefor "saved" over, erasing the previous one. It would be nice to have all, so if anyone kept them and would share them with me, great! Regardless, it has been an honor and privelege and a load of fun. Also, many before 2006 were often crafted at the prison with illustrations glued into an empty square - you know, old-fashioned paste-up work - and run off a printer that way. God bless.
