Whatsoever Magazine

Archive for June 2009

Those of you who, like me, begin checking the mail for the new edition of a publication about two weeks before its due date, will have noticed that Whatsoever’s tenth anniversary — and final — issue hasn’t hit your mailbox yet. In recent years, the publication schedule of WM has been as haphazard as often as it’s been regular, a fact that causes your editor considerable pain and chagrin. The aforementioned pained and chagrined editor dreamed of having the very last issue sent out promptly on time and with a flourish indeed.

The bad news is, of course, that the “on time” part of that dream has failed miserably. Things — like an impending international move for some family members and a university degree for me — have gotten very much in the road. The good news is that the “flourish” part of the dream is still possible.

So your magazine will be coming to you soon, and here’s hoping it’ll be the best issue yet. There’ll be details about all the exciting happenings that have conspired to send the publication schedule so far off track, and of course you can expect all the regular features, too.

If you’d like to be a part of this final issue, it’s not too late. There are several ways you can be involed:

  • Write a letter letting us know where your life is at now. When did you first receive Whatsoever? What were you doing then and what are you doing now? How has God been great in your life in that time?
  • If you’ve never written, please write and introduce yourself. Send pictures! Tell stories! Let’s make this next issue one gigantic tea party!
  • Know a great Christian magazine we should all be reading? Share details.
  • Contribute to our special feature: What I Wish I Knew 10 Years Ago. If you’re 25 now, what do you wish the 15 year-old version of you knew? What important life lesson would you share with someone ten years your junior?
  • Finally, please pray. Pray for effective use of time and a swift editing process. Most of all, pray that God would use this final issue of Whatsoever to bring glory to Himself and encouragement to each of us, the readers and contributors.

If you’d like your submissions squeezed in, please email them to whatsoevermag@gmail.com by the 15th of July.
