To our readers

Our days are filled with constant prayer as we follow the latest developments in Ukraine. For so many of us, these are more than just images on our TV screens. We know the faces and the names of our Ukrainian brothers and sisters in Christ.

Many of you have reached out to The Christian Chronicle asking how to help. Right now it’s very difficult to get money and resources into Ukraine, but we encourage you to see our “how to help” Ukraine page to find links to a few ministries and churches endeavoring to help. Thank you!

If you value the reporting that you’ll find only in the Chronicle, we humbly ask that you consider a gift to support this ministry. We’re blessed this year to have a group of supporters offering a $100,000 matching gift during our spring campaign. In addition to your gifts for Ukraine relief, please consider a gift to help us continue to bring you the latest news from Ukraine and around the globe. Any amount helps. Or, if you are able, please consider becoming one of our founding Chronicle Associates with a gift of $1,000 or more. Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] if you have questions. Thank you!

— Erik Tryggestad, president and CEO

Editorial: Reclaiming unity through respect

 

Differing opinions have always existed. Even the apostles disagreed. Churches of Christ are connected to the Restoration Movement, which challenged divisions and argued for unity. How then do we find unity when it feels like every congregation has fractures after being tested for two years?
