I'm still in shock. I just read about your ‘death’ moments ago in the newest Faith Today magazine. Your demise is a sad reflection on the state of magazines—even denominational magazines. Maybe the PCC wants to buy it back for a dollar and keep it going with some hard Presbyterians [...]

A group of us from St. Andrew’s, Saskatoon, were discussing that the Presbyterian Record will no longer be after this year. We are dismayed to lose such an outstanding publication.
