I have on my desk the last issue of Weavings. The theme for this November/December/January issue invites us to “Keep the Door Open for the Holy.” I’m earnestly hoping that I can do that even through the sadness I feel for the loss of a resource that has formed and shaped so many of us.
As we at The Upper Room discern the next steps in our publishing journey, we will continue to be inspired and influenced by the legacy of this resource, its founder, John Mogabgab, the many writers whose voices we carry in our hearts, and the relationships we have developed with you, the readers.
While we know that contemplative writing and content from the Weavings archive will live on as a part of the digital offerings of The Upper Room, we don’t know yet the specifics of these resources. I hope that you will fill out a short survey to tell us more about your preferences so that they might shape our future.
And we want to stay in touch. If you have not already subscribed to the Weavings Email Newsletter, please sign up to hear from us about new offerings.
Finally, we would like to hear your stories about Weavings. How did you discover Weavings? How have you used Weavings in your personal life or ministry setting? What has Weavings meant to you? Please share your stories in the comments area below.
We are grateful and humbled to have shared this journey with you for the past thirty-one years. We hope that you continue to be formed by the One who gave us the gift of Weavings journal. And that Weavings lives on as you grow ever closer to God and one another.
