The last few years have been chaotic ones on practically every level: socially, racially, politically, religiously, even (sometimes) personally.
Our responsibility as religious journalists has never been more necessary. In the midst of confusion and panic, our voice not only helps our readers (listeners, viewers) separate fact from fiction, it also reminds them of eternal principles that transcend the fear trafficked by so many.
Like you, I’m disappointed that we were unable to meet at our annual convention. But our plan is to livestream a presentation by John Longhurst Wednesday, March 18, 1:00-2:30pm EST, our annual member meeting Wednesday, March 18, 3:00-4:00pm EST, and our Best of the Church Press awards presentation Thursday, March 19, 1:00-3:00pm EST. It won’t be the same as a personal meeting, but it will have to suffice until we meet in Chicago next April.
Thank you for the consistent, conscientious work you do, and for the quality material you produce. Ours is a ministry that makes a positive difference. “Do not let your hearts be troubled” (John 14:1).
