On the Brink

Our last issue of 2005.

This issue is a reflection of some of the positive, good things in our world. You'll read about Edwin Mendivelso, a Columbian man who spent some time teaching Bible stories to children in Nunavut. And our first prize winner in the LutheransWrite contest is featured, with a Christmas-appropriate story about her work with inner-city people.

And there's much more. Enjoy a pre-Christmas read.

And now, as we pause on the brink of 2006, all of us here on the Canada Lutheran staff want to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy, healthy and blessed Christmas time. We've enjoyed producing the magazine for you this past year and look forward to the exciting 20th anniversary year to come.
