BaptistWay Press will replace literature destroyed or lost because of Hurricane Ike, BWP Publisher Ross West told me at lunch today. The replacement literature will be free if the church will simply pay for the shipping.

Disaster relief and longer term response has become a real calling card for Baptists in introducing ourselves to unchurched people. As Ross said to me, this is evangelism. We don’t just take care of our own, we reach out to all people in the name of Christ, providing the physical and spiritual care they need.
Being Baptist means loving God and loving people — and showing it.
