Did you know that 111 donors (individuals, couples and families) have contributed to The Christian Chronicle for 20 consecutive years — or more?
Stanley and Betty Lobley are among them.
Dedication to God and family — both spiritual and physical — defines the lives of the Lobleys, members of the Edgemere Church of Christ in Wichita Falls, Texas. Stanley Lobley served for many years as a deacon of the Oak Hills Church of Christ in San Antonio. Now, at age 90, he continues to serve ministries including Sonshine House, a Wichita Falls program that feeds and clothes those living in poverty. He has worked with the ministry for 20 years.
He and his wife have three children and three grandchildren. They have donated to the Chronicle for 25 consecutive years.
Stanley Lobley says he’s known about the Chronicle for “years and years” — all the way back to his days at Abilene Christian University in Texas.
The best reason to support the Chronicle, he adds, is the vital role the newspaper plays as an information source for Churches of Christ.
Although he enjoys many sections of the paper, his main reason for reading it is to learn “what any particular church is doing at the moment, mainly the mission work.”
He urges Christians to read the Chronicle — even pieces that express views contrary to their views. “Don’t expect every article to be in accord with your thinking,” he says.
