Introducing the newsletter, Clem writes:
IT’S NICE TO SEE YOU…
And you all know the rest of the line! But it is nice to be back with a magazine specifically for, and about, those who work within the Christian retail and supply community.
Community, that’s a word which is very much behind the vision and ethos of this magazine. I’m delighted that Together is being published under the banner of Christian Resources Together (CRT) and I must begin by paying tribute to Steve and Mandy Briars who have been the driving force behind this magazine, along with Eddie Olliffe.
We have deliberately chosen the title Together because it clearly states the purpose of the magazine. To [mis] quote many politicians, “We’re all in this together” and in our trade this has never been more essential than today.
I want to make this very much YOUR magazine, dealing with your issues, sourcing answers to your questions and sharing your experiences too…
Amongst other features the magazine will include retailer and supplier profiles along with ‘Your Say’ and ‘Quick Fire’ sections: your opportunity to raise issues and share ideas with the wider trade; but if you can’t wait to do that in print, don’t forget the Christian Authors, Booksellers & Publishers facebook group where you can already share your thoughts, frustrations and inspirations with others behind the scenes.
If you’re not on the Together mailing list and you’d like to read the rest of the newsletter or make any suggestions for the magazine, give Clem a shout: clemajackson#gmail.com*
