On Second Thought

I WISH TO RETRACT a statement I made regarding your new magazine layout
a number of months ago.

I WISH TO RETRACT a statement I made regarding your new magazine layout a number of months ago. Initially, I was horrified to see such a beautifully simple design converted to the colorful assemblage that it is today (perhaps because I have an aversion to football, and the first cover featured the Rams?); I thought that the powerful simplicity of your publication had been lost. However, I have greatly appreciated the new ability to include the visual arts, and the central messages of justice and service continue to shine through. So, I take it back—your layout is beautiful!

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
