What do you want to read about?
I’m going to “cheat” a little with this blog in an attempt to reinforce my column in the July 2006 issue of The Lutheran.
We’re already preparing for next year’s editions and are seeking your assistance with suggestions of what we should cover. Next month the magazine will offer readers a list of topics for possible cover stories, giving you the opportunity to rank them in importance.
Any such listing, however, tends to steer results by framing the subject matter in a short statement and, frankly, because most people don’t fill in the “others” line very often.
So, in an effort to not influence the outcome, I invite you to contact us in the next few weeks with suggestions for articles you’d like to see the magazine tackle in-depth during 2007. E-mail me your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org or send a letter to Editor, The Lutheran, 8765 W. Higgins Rd., Chicago, IL 60631. Hopefully we’ll be able to offer a broad list of subjects for your consideration and ranking in August.
Obviously, the staff will address many more subjects than those requested by readers. Unforeseen events—news—could determine others. Regardless, The Lutheran strives to be responsive to readers’ needs. Let us know.
