July-September 2017 Baptist peacemaker The Journal of BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz Vol 37 No 3 "As an organization of loving Christians committed to peace and justice, we have made bold statements in the past. We have committed to nonviolent resolution of conflict while our governments have chosen the path of war. We have committed to be a welcoming and affirming community to all Christians regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. We have committed to become the BPFNA~Bautistas por la Paz, and bear in our very name our commitment to the inclusion of languages and cultural perspectives different from those based in the USA-English speaking world. We have committed to reimagine a world in which love has the last and loudest voice in the way we come together as the body of Christ." -Mayra Picos-Lee, President of the BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz Board of Directors Witnessing to God's peace rooted in justice ~ working together until it comes.
