Reflecting on the Past, Looking to the Future

For the past 15–plus years, Priority! magazine has sought to portray the Salvationist values of prayer, holiness, and evangelism as seen in the lives of people. These stories, hundreds of them, were representative of men and women of every age, race, and culture to be found in America today. In that respect it has been a picture of this country and her people in their search for God.

As with life itself, there have been stories of tragedy, recovery, and victory as individuals shared their unique life experiences. Always evident was the presence of the Lord in every circumstance, offering strength for that day and hope for the future. We trust these testimonies were a source of inspiration and encouragement to many through the years.

This will be the final edition of Priority! While acknowledging the value of what has been done in the past, the Eastern Territory now feels it is time to move in a new direction with our communications and publications strategy. By reallocating resources, new technologies will allow us to reach a broader audience with the life–changing message of Jesus Christ. In the near future we will be announcing what these changes will be and how you will be able to access many exciting new features designed to enhance your spiritual life and better inform you about what is happening in our territory.

I wish to publicly thank Linda Johnson, who has served with great effectiveness as the only editor Priority! has ever known. Thanks to her, these life stories helped to shape our own as we faced each new day.
