Hosted by the Baptist Center for Ethics and the Christian Life Commission of the Baptist General Convention of Texas, the Thursday, June 21, luncheon will feature a 20-minute cut of EthicsDaily.com's award-winning documentary Sacred Texts, Social Duty, which explores the connection between faith and taxes.
Following the screening will be an opportunity for audience dialogue with Suzii Paynter, CLC's director, and Robert Parham, BCE's executive director.
Due to the generous corporate sponsorship of the Ministers and Missionaries Benefit Board, the current ticket prices are significantly lower than the actual price.
Sacred Texts, Social Duty is a 2011 Bronze Telly Award Winner in the film/video category (non-broadcast) for religion/spirituality.
Founded in 1978, the Telly Awards honor film and video productions, web commercials and TV programs. Winners have included the History Channel, ESPN, NASA, National Gallery of Art and local TV stations.
