The Magazine of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America


Church magazine closes

DisciplesWorld, which covered the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) as an independent journal, is shutting its doors after eight years of publication.

The editor and publisher cited declining subscription and advertising revenue and a decrease in charitable gifts. As an independent publication, it could cover a variety of controversial issues, including homosexuality, war, immigration and gun control.

The journal had planned to re-launch its Web site in January with more space for features and reader participation, but financial issues could not be overcome.
