Fall issue: Joy

Edited by Mary H. SchertzVision cover - Peace

Unlike other topics we have explored in the journal, joy has no substance that we can pull apart and examine, Mary Schertz writes in the editorial. “We begin the issue with companion pieces. Chris Marshall’s thoughtful essay on why Christian joy matters is followed by Julia Gingrich’s reflection on Marshall’s presentation, from the perspective of her ministry internship experience in a historic Black church in south-central Elkhart. These two essays provide a framework for reading the rest of the articles, most of which deal more specifically with various aspects of joy.”
