APD - Liberty Magazine, Adventist Voice Of Religious Freedom, Marks Centennial (02.02.2005) (416 words)
Liberty is designed to emphasize the separation of church and state, as well as to promote the rights of all to follow their conscience as they choose.
Liberty magazine is currently read by nearly 200,000 thought leaders throughout North America, including those in local, state and federal government offices.
Annually, the magazine cosponsors an awards banquet held in the historic United States Senate Caucus Room on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The print distribution and the banquet are made possible in large part from support of Seventh-day Adventist church members who donate specifically to help the magazine.
