The National Ministries Board of the American Baptist Churches, USA (ABC/USA) recently printed the text of a letter between Abraham Lincoln and the American Baptist Home Mission Society, with some discussion and context. This correspondence is an interesting demonstration of the intersection of religion and politics in our time period, and (although not stated implicitely in the article) impacted baptist relationships down to our own time. NM has graciously agreed to post the article at this link so we can discuss it: http://www.nationalministries.org/resources/christian_citizen/CC2007n1_Abraham_Lincoln_CRL.pdf
