The Magazine of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America


Change starts now

All the news of the ELCA that's fit to print

Since you’ve found me, you’re already aware some things are changing at The Lutheran.

The column of Presiding Bishop Mark S. Hanson relocated to the last page of the magazine, where the editor’s column used to run. This gives him more space (an additional 300 words) and affords him the last word as he strives to carry out his leadership role in our church.

The change also lets me “introduce” the magazine in a number of ways. Usually that will mean comment on the articles in the current issue, what the staff is working on and why, and noting trends and emerging issues. Editors’ musings rarely “sell” magazines: overall content and highly talented and thought-provoking writers do. So this editor moved out of the lead columnist role and into a more traditionally journalistic one of editorial assessment and professional observations on the church.
