This is My Story

We, as American Baptist Women are a wonderful diverse group of women from all diverse backgrounds. Now is the time to stand for racial harmony in our country and the world. If not now, when? If not us, who? Now is the time…if you see something, say something, or do something.

A Reflection on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 2021

I know it is late on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but the reflection I wrote came to me at breakfast. I wrote it quickly down on my phone, and then the job of being mom called. At one point I thought perhaps I wouldn’t get to writing this post. However, in the course of the day, other pieces listed below as resources have shown up reminding me of my reflection and pushing me to speak up today, even if the day is technically almost over.

White Cross … Fall 2020

In June, I sent out the packets for White Cross requests to all of the Association White Cross Coordinators.  The packets included address labels for each church in their association, if available.
My goal was to reach every church in NYS for White Cross.

Special Project … Fall 2020

We remind you that our special project for 2020-2021 is to support Community Missions of the Niagara Frontier in Niagara Falls, NY. Many things drew us to this project. A couple of those are: Their Girls Circle project, which runs groups within the Niagara Falls public schools to help build girls’ self-esteem and to teach them strategies for dealing with the pressures to use drugs. This matches well with our national focus on addiction and recovery.
