CC’s 2018 Fall Donation Appeal is now running until November 30, with a $30,000 goal to sustain its independent, Reformed journalism ministry into next year.
During this season of harvest, we reflect on recent accomplishments while looking to prepare for the future. Last year, CC introduced the campaign theme of Rooted & Growing, with the image of a maple tree. This fall that theme returns as it remains a rich image for CC, recognizing long-time subscribers with deep roots in the church, new generations spreading across Canada like branches, and maple spinners, released in the fall, which feels a little bit like CC’s stories online – you just never know where they’re going to end up, or what new growth might start as a result.
BERT WITVOET FELLOWSHIP
As part of this year’s campaign, CC is pleased to introduce the Bert Witvoet Fellowship. In his 26 years with CC (17 as Editor), Bert Witvoet dedicated his leadership and writing talent to this community.
The fellowship celebrates the contributions of Witvoet, who “retired” from the paper for his third time last year and next year will be turning 85! Bert embodies what Mike Buma, another past Editor, calls the ethos of CC: “unshakably rooted in the Reformed worldview that determines his practical, down-to-earth and hands-on faith.”
All gifts given in celebration of Bert will help develop the gifts of young writers and our ongoing commitment to excellent Reformed journalism.
