Rwandan Baptist Honored with Human Rights AwardJuly 24, 2015
The Baptist World Congress continued Thursday in Durban, South Africa. A key highlight of the day came as the Baptist World Alliance's human rights award was given. My Ethics Daily article today, Rwandan Baptist Honored with Human Rights Award, highlights the story of the winner: Corneille Gato Munyamasoko, general secretary of the Association of Baptist Churches in Rwanda.
In the article, I also highlight the story of a Baptist I met from South Sudan who is similarly working to promote human rights. Edward Dima, president of the Baptist Convention of South Sudan, is the first person from his young nation to attend a Congress. You can watch a video interview with Dima that my Ethics Daily colleagues Robert Parham and Cliff Vaughn created.
I am glad to be part of a group that takes human rights advocacy seriously. You can see other photos I took during from Day 2 (Thursday) of the Congress here.
