December 2014

It's the end of the year already. Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday when we were brainstorming ideas of how to celebrate Forward in Christ's 100th anniversary. And it's been fun. We hope you have enjoyed our look back through the years and our celebration of God's grace and favor upon the magazine. We included a few more special anniversary features in this issue. Don't miss them.

We also added pictures of our current staff. But these are just a few of the people who make this publication possible. Our 12 contributing editors and numerous feature writers work tirelessly to provide insights into God's Word so you can grow in your faith. Countless others—congregations and individuals—have told us their personal stories of God's grace so we can share them with you. Numerous people at Northwestern Publishing House and the WELS Center for Mission and Ministry make it possible for us to print the magazine and send it all over the world. We thank all of them from the bottom of our hearts for their contributions.

We also thank you—our readers—for your continued comments, ideas, and support through the years. God has certainly blessed our little magazine. We pray for his continued blessings in the future.
