spiritual perspective on magazines

Finding hope

ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON a few years ago, inching my way through the magazine racks at one of my favorite bookstores, I spotted a new title: Hope. Who could resist riffling through that? One quick riffle and I bought it, took it home, and read every word.

A small bi-monthly produced by a tiny staff in Brooklin, Maine, Hope runs deep. On racks rife with sensational news stories, "surface" mags recording every hair-do (and don't), countless car-buff magazines, the latest fads in food and shelter, Hope is an oasis. Its cover usually features a human face looking you right in the eye and inviting you to come into the magazine for a conversation.
