READER FEEDBACK: ‘Rocky Mountain Christian’ publishes its last issue. Be a part of our tribute.
The latest issue of Rocky Mountain Christian — which recently arrived in our mailbox — is the last, its editors say.
We’re sorry to learn that another voice of Christian journalism will fall silent. But we certainly understand the challenges of producing — and mailing — news to faithful readers.
The newspaper “has served a significant role in supporting solid doctrine and helping to keep the church informed about events throughout the world,” its editors wrote. However, “the staff of the Rocky Mountain Christian is very small and, as such, cannot provide the time or manpower to upgrade the publication to continue as is.”
Produced in Eastlake, Colo., Rocky Mountain Christian was launched in 1972 by Jack Carter, Roy Lanier Jr. and Max Hughes. Delivering news from Churches of Christ, thought-provoking opinion pieces and book reviews, it reached about 46 U.S. states and a dozen foreign countries — though in recent years it was mailed only within the U.S. The publication has about 4,000 subscribers.
Are you one of them? We’d like to hear from you as we prepare a tribute to the Rocky Mountain Christian for our next issue. Please post your thoughts below or email us.
