“Today this event assumes a more majestic quality because of our ability together to affirm the historic role that people of faith have played in the history of this country and the constitutional protections those who profess and express their faith have always demanded and cherished.”

From humble beginnings in the 1970s in their Oklahoma City garage, David and Barbara Green launched what is now the sprawling nationwide commercial enterprise, Hobby Lobby. Their company - now owned entirely by five members of the Green family - is now at the epicenter of an important legal battle over the breathtaking reach of the Affordable Care Act. At issue is whether - due to the Greens' deeply held religious objections - the Hobby Lobby owners have an enforceable freedom-of-conscience right not to provide several contraceptive methods (four out of the 20 ACA-required methods) to the crafts company's employees. The Supreme Court will hear oral argument in this closely watched case on March 25.

Every year, the Baylor family pauses early in the spring semester to look back across the seventeen decades of our institution's glorious history. On a very special day, we gather in community to celebrate that historic first day of February — in 1845 — when Baylor University was chartered by the Republic of Texas.
