To kick off this season of generosity and gratitude, your Spectrum team decided to try something fun as we close out a good year of work. As I wrote in my 2023 annual report—arriving in donor mailboxes currently—last year was a year of transition. As you can see by the team graphic, 2023 has been a year of addition. We are blessed to have added close to a dozen part-time reporters, creators, and editors to our team. The tote bag project has resulted in over 450 sign-ons to our brand-new, student-focused Campus Connect newsletter. As a result of all this activity, the website will surpass two million views in a few days, and in a few weeks, we will be debuting a brand new website with cutting-edge upgrades and features.
If you appreciate our work providing Adventism with trustworthy journalism, thoughtful theological reflections, and creative spiritual inspiration, please treat us like one of your favorite ministries. Spectrum is more than a journal or website—since 1969 it has been a faithful community that keeps hope alive as we join together as a public witness to our values within Adventism and beyond.
