As editor I would like to thank everyone who has shown their support for the work of Beacon Lights with notes and words of encouragement. It means a lot to me as well as the staff. We really appreciate it when someone thinks about Beacon Lights when they read a good poem, article, or story someone has written, and send it in for us to consider for publication. We are grateful to those who are willing to risk exposing their heart and soul and send the fruits of their own written work to share with others. We would not be able to do this work without this kind of help.
The pure preaching of God’s word continues, and will always continue to bear much fruit, and it is very encouraging to see some of that fruit in the form of writing. What follows is a list of some date sensitive things to consider writing for in the future:
Due April 20—material for Father’s Day, Flag day, things related to the upcoming convention.
Due May 20—Writing Contest (see details on page 7), material for Independence Day, Parent’s Day, and again things relating to the upcoming convention.
Due June 20—material for the beginning of school and catechism, Labor Day, Grandparent’s Day, upcoming convention (note, August and September issues are combined).
Due August 20—material for Columbus Day, United Nations Day, Halloween, Reformation Day, convention material.
Due September 20—convention material, Election Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving Day.
Due October 20—Christmas material.
Those going to the convention, seriously consider keeping a diary of events, thoughts, and ways in which you grew spiritually. Please contact Beacon Lights NOW and we can arrange to reimburse your registration fee for good convention reports and/or photos.
Please continue also to remember this work in your prayers.
Yours in Christ,
