When Dan and Mary Huber (NorthWest Church of Christ) found out that thousands of Afghan refugees were coming to their city of San Antonio, Texas, they chose to extend extraordinary hospitality to their new neighbors. But they soon found themselves to be not the hosts, but the honored guests of their new Afghan friends. What happens when Christians and Muslims from different cultures and faiths gather around common tables? From the online and print edition story by Bobby Ross, Jr.

The Christian Chronicle's 2023 summer intern, Tiane Davis, a senior journalism major at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, gives her take on the future of how Christians receive their news and what information and stories young Christians like her seek.

This October, the Airport Road Church of Christ in Carson City, Nevada, and its minister, Bruce Henderson, will celebrate 50 years together. Bruce shares the lessons he's learned from five decades ministering to the same congregation and what could possibly be next after such a long time. From the online and print edition story by Tiane Davis.
