Thanks for reading The Christian Chronicle Newsletter.

We hope your week is off to a good start.

The Christian Chronicle recently celebrated our 75th Anniversary. Several related articles are included below.

This month we are hoping to bring in some new online donors. Did you know for as little as $3/month (through the “Tip Jar“) you can help The Christian Chronicle continue our mission to inform, inspire and unite Christians around the world? Next week we’ll be having a special online fundraiser, but you don’t have to wait. Consider making a tax-deductible gift through our website christianchronicle.org.

Thank you!
