Inside Story

This issue of Sojourners marks our 30th anniversary (yes, Sojourners is older than some of our staff-it's even older than some of the leftovers in our office refrigerator). Our graphic spread is a Sojourners timeline-if you're one of our newer readers you can see a bit of where we've been. If you've been with us along the way, maybe it will spark some memories (if not nostalgia for 1970s fashions).

One entry on our timeline is the beginning of the Palestinian intifada in 1987. Somberly, but not without hope, we again find ourselves covering the struggle for a just peace for all the people of the Middle East. Jim Wallis offers a firsthand account of his recent visit, and his thoughts on how to nurture the nonviolence movement in the region. We also have the testimonies of and about people-Palestinian and Israeli, of varied faiths-who are putting their lives on the line for peace and human rights.

Whether you've read us for one issue or 200, we're glad you're along for the ride. We look forward to another 30 years together.
