Your support means the world to us!

We received wonderful feedback last week when we launched our new, interactive PDF version of The Christian Chronicle. We’re thrilled to offer you more ways to read this publication digitally.

But please remember that journalism isn’t free, even if it’s read online only. It takes funds from our dedicated supporters and advertisers to provide real news that honors God — in print and electronically.

This year donations are down. That’s understandable due to inflation. We’re thankful for every dollar we receive.

Please consider a one-time or recurring donation to the Chronicle. Or click here for more information about our new Christian Chronicle Associates program.

Thank you so much for all you do to support this ministry!

— Erik Tryggestad, president and CEO

Five days before the Alabama/Tennessee game, Justin Peach bought an orange suit on Amazon for $25.

“I didn’t open it,” said the Tennessee-born minister for a church in Birmingham. “I had it sitting in the closet. I didn’t say a word about it.”

Then, as he watched Chase McGrath make a last-second field goal to lift his beloved Tennessee Volunteers to their first victory over the Crimson Tide in 15 years, he had a sudden thought:

“I sure hope that suit fits.”

Voices only: Hymns that help us through our highs and lows

 

“Hymns have been my companion from a young age. My dad preached at a small congregation in South Dakota when I was a girl. My favorite at this time was No. 31 in the hymnal, ‘Be With Me Lord.’ The song leader, Bernard, sent a small grin my way whenever he led it, which was often.”

Contributor Donna Embray shares memories from the pews — and her favorite hymns.
