This Christian Chronicle article, titled “Beautiful is the floor for those who sing good news,” highlights the history and improvement of a 106-year-old house of worship. West End Silver Point Church of Christ was once a thriving hub for the Black community in the segregated South, and its current members still work to preserve its impact. Sister Evelyn Buck, a 90-year-old church member, even works to preserve the history of its hymnals in Zip Lock bags.

This CHVN Radio article, titled “Chris Tomlin gets good news getting on a plane,” celebrates a Christian artist acknowledged in mainstream media. Boarding a flight to begin his tour, Chris Tomlin received the news that his song, “Holy Forever” has been nominated for a Billboard Music Award. Tomlin said that since his youth, he’s felt called to “help give people a voice to worship God.”

This CBS News Chicago article, titled “Suburban church takes in more than 100 migrants from outside Chicago Police station,” shows how a church converted its space into a refuge. Seeing 100 migrants camped outside in the cold, Good Lutheran Church acted fast to provide them with a warm space to sleep. They did not stop there, however, as they also called for “interpreters, and places to provide migrants with showers and laundry services.”

Although every Hub article is selected to foster discussion about modern church structure, not every idea and opinion expressed in the linked articles may fully align with the views and mission of Koinesúnē Magazine. All the same, we seek to uplift and celebrate the different ministries working around the globe.
