BWA Day observed in May

Washington, DC (BWA)–Baptist World Alliance Day is observed on May 3 and 4, depending whether Baptists worship on Saturday or Sunday. The emphasis is “Hear the Spirit – Transformation.”

 

Baptists around the world are encouraged to worship together and to pray for each other. Participants are also encouraged to share their insights and experiences on Twitter @TheBWA or in the BWA Facebook group, so the global Baptist family can celebrate together.

 

Observation of BWA Day began in the 1920s as “Baptist World Sunday.” Previously celebrated in February, it now occurs on the first Saturday and Sunday in May.

 

The 2014 worship guide was prepared by Thomas Jackson, pastor emeritus at Wake Forest Baptist Church in North Carolina in the United States. He is author of the hymn, “We are called to be God’s people.”

 

Worship resources are available on the BWA website, www.bwanet.org.

 

The Baptist World Alliance is a fellowship of 228 conventions and unions in 121 countries and territories comprising 42 million members in 177,000 churches. Its priorities are nurturing the passion for mission and evangelism, promoting worship, fellowship and unity, responding to people in need, defending human rights and justice and advancing relevant theological reflection.
