The Center for Baptist Heritage & Studies uses two purposes in our focus on Baptist heritage: “Remembering the Past. . .Imagining the Future.” These two purposes help us focus on the importance of our heritage while always holding onto the legacy we will leave for future Baptists. In the essay contest theme for 2016 we consider the advantages of learning about others different from ourselves whether it be through the conventional modes of travel or through armchair travel via books or through the world wide web. We also want the essayist to dream a bit about what and where they would like to know more about in God's beautiful world.
