What's inside

It’s a new year filled with new beginnings. For us at Forward in Christ, we are debuting a new look for you, our readers. Taking into account answers and comments from our readers survey last year, we have added new columns, expanded old favorites, and freshened up our design. You’ll see some new authors presenting the age-old saving message of Christ crucified. You’ll meet WELS members from around the world who will share their stories of faith. Many articles this month will follow the theme “New beginnings,” as we all start the new year with our Lord.

Please take time this month to explore what’s new in the magazine. Then let us know what you think. Submit your feedback.

Check out this month's Table of contents.
