After reading the August issue, which was dedicated to the Synod’s convention, I was looking forward to seeing similar treatment for the National Youth Gathering in the September issue. Imagine my disappointment when I opened the magazine to see a two-page article instead. The article didn’t come close to capturing what the NYG is about. In this article, you’ve done a disservice to the Synod by downplaying one of the biggest and best things the Synod does for its members. Furthermore, you’ve made a clear statement that church politics is worth a full issue, while youth ministry is worth two pages. And we wonder why the Church is losing its young people?
