This special issue is dedicated to the evangelical witness in our great neighbor-land to the north. CHRISTIANITY TODAY’S news editor is securely married to a Canadian (Pat Kucharsky comes from Hamilton, Ontario); hence this is an appropriate time to salute this colleague’s fine journalistic contribution. David Eugene Kucharsky (“Gene,” as he is called) joined us on January 1, 1958, coming from the Pittsburgh bureau of United Press International. In the years since then he has shaped the most effective and widely read religious news section in Christian journalism. Mrs. Kucharsky—along with the three young Kucharsky daughters—will be glad to read here of our tenth-year recognition of her husband’s conscientious labors: with the next issue he will hold, along with Dr. Harold Lindsell, the rank of associate editor. Gene Kucharsky’s new role will include supervisory direction of the news operation but will also give him the chance to project and prepare periodic interpretative news features for the main essay section.

At the same time, Richard Ostling becomes news editor, a post in which he will maintain close liaison with CHRISTIANITY TODAY’S religious journalism fellows under the Washington Journalism Center.
