7 Letters to the Editor

Southern Gospel Journal welcomes letters to the editor. We will post the most thoughtful and insightful submissions. Ground rules: Don't attack or belittle groups or fellow posters, or advance heresies rejected by orthodox Christianity. Do keep comments positive, constructive, and on topic.
  1. I had come here first, but when I saw this I went on over there instead of reading here. It seemed proper to read and comment on the choices over there.

    • Yes, that would certainly be appropriate and best. This wasn’t my planned post for the day – the Singing News tidbits post was the planned post. This fell more into the unplanned news story department.

      • Well it is good in that you might lead some of your readers over there.

  2. Which video (hallelujah square) won? I can’t find one from Myrtle Beach.

    • It has been removed from YouTube (at least publicly). I had wondered if perhaps it should have been disqualified, for that reason.

      • That’s interesting.

      • Yeah guys! When we went through the nominations, it was still listed and by the time of the vote, it had disappeared. But there was still an overwhelmingly large number of votes for it. Even when I sent the final list out, I noted that it had disappeared. As if Ralph Nader came from nowhere to bring in the victory.
