BWA Executive Committee Resolution 1969-08.1

(Presented by Van der Laan)

1. We the Executive Committee of the Baptist World Alliance in Baden near Vienna, Austria, August 2-6, 1969, are deeply concerned about the continuing need of the many people in the world who are suffering hunger and who are in need of necessities of life.

2. We renew therefore the urgent call made by the Executive Committee meeting in Monrovia, Liberia, July 30-August 1, 1968.

We urge all Baptists around the world to put forth every effort to meet the needs of hungry people. We recommend that each member of our Baptist churches be challenged to contribute at least one day’s earnings in 1969-1970 for this cause to the relief and rehabilitation fund of the Baptist World Alliance or national Baptist relief appeals. We also request the Administrative Committee to take whatever steps it deems necessary in promoting this worthy project.
