We are providing this guide in order to save time and to provide explanation for some of the guidelines. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
PERMISSIONS MORNING STAR BAPTIST CHURCH CAN NEVER GRANT, ALONG WITH TIPS OR ALTERNATIVES:
Daily Devotionals and Reflections are derived from Bishop Borders’ sermons and contain principles from Bishop Borders’ books. Therefore, because of copyright infringement concerns with the book publisher, we cannot grant permission to reprint some devotionals.
You can always direct people to links of the devotionals through e-mail or on a Web site by copying the URL or link on that page. As a matter of fact, we encourage this behavior. Please remember that our mission statement is to be a highly Spiritual Congregation through empowerment, biblical relevance and knowledge and if you feel that a devotional will help someone, please send the link to them.
