9 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 don’t think you got quite finished revising the Talleys paragraph.

    • Thanks! You know, I think I did actually have that right, but that revision must not have saved right. (But maybe I just forgot!)

  2. Watching the Gold City link you posted above….who is the lead singer? He doesn’t look like the one I saw in September at NQC. Is
    this a current line-up or before the West guy singing lead. It’s been hard to keep up with GC lately.

    • The new line up.

  3. Jerry Pelfrey.

  4. Craig West made it public before NQC that he would be leaving the road. He felt he needed to be home more for his 10 year old son. They hired Jerry the week before NQC I believe and he started right after NQC.

    • It wasn’t even that Craig felt he needed to be with his son, but that his son was having a real difficult time in adjusting his being gone and showed it.

  5. Interesting new format! I don’t know about everyone else, but this is showing up as “Chameleon” right now (it’s about 6:00 where I am).

    • I’ve spent hours building and customizing the redesign in a sandbox (technical term! 🙂 ) You managed to catch me in the midst of my five-minute mad dash to flip all the switches and implement all the changes on this end. 🙂
