BWA calls for reconciliation prayer

WASHINGTON--After 30 years of sometimes-violent conflict, Baptists in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh have taken steps toward reconciliation, according to Denton Lotz, executive director of the Baptist World Alliance.

Lotz called on Baptists around the world to pray for leaders of the Samavesam Telegu of Telegu Baptist Churches: "We call upon Baptists worldwide to pray without ceasing for unity and reconciliation among the Samavesam of Telegu Baptists so that the millions who do not know Christ will hear the good news of salvation."

The root of the conflict is over property, Lotz explained. American Baptist International Ministries made what he called a "very generous property gift" to the Telegu Baptist churches.

By Samuel Atchison

Yet, he argues, Latinos still face enormous barriers that range from xenophobia to racism. "The real challenge for the Hispanic community, then, is to transform its astonishing growth in numbers, its importance to the economy and its cultural influence into political power."
