Resolution On World Hunger

WHEREAS, Southern Baptists have traditionally been a people concerned with bringing to bear the full impact of God’s truth in every area of human life, and

WHEREAS, There are millions of people in our world who will die this year because of malnutrition and hunger, and

WHEREAS, Our Lord Jesus clearly identified himself with and directs our loving attention toward these suffering multitudes, and

WHEREAS, The very stability of the world order is threatened by the perpetuation of such massive hunger.

Therefore, be it RESOLVED, That we continue to emphasize a lifestyle of sharing through the observance of World Hunger Day, August 6, 1980, through regular giving to the Foreign Mission Board’s hungry relief fund, and through support for the Home Mission Board’s ministries to the hungry in the United States, and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we encourage our elected representatives in Washington to support legislation directed toward resolving the problem of world hunger, and

Be it finally RESOLVED, That we encourage Southern Baptists to engage in strong and active Christian citizenship efforts to alleviate world hunger.
