The summer season brings a slight variation in our issue dates. Publishing twenty-five issues a year leaves us two two extra weeks to use for staff vacations. The next issue will be dated three weeks from this one, August 10, and the following one three weeks later, August 31. After that we will resume the normal two-week cycle.

Our staff meets every morning to read the Bible, sing, and pray. Recently there have been a number of special requests for prayer for loved ones in our staff families and among our contributors and friends who have been seriously ill. We have seen God answer prayer in a special way, and we have rejoiced in his goodness.

The many friends and admirers of our beloved editor-at-large Addison H. Leitch will want to remember him in prayer; he is seriously ill with cancer.

Our co-founder and executive editor L. Nelson Bell just finished his term of service as moderator of the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. He too needs prayer, for he is suffering from several infirmities that give him considerable pain.

At a recent meeting of the CHRISTIANITY TODAY Board of Directors we were able to report that God is blessing and that great progress has been made in the last two years. Our Canon Press is getting geared up for production, and we have great expectations for it.
