The United Church Observer has been winning multiple awards of all kinds for journalistic excellence for as long as it has been around. Founded in 1829, it is the oldest continuously published magazine in North America and the second oldest in the English speaking world. And it has done this by moving with the times rather than by fighting them. To get a taste of the Observer, check out the online edition. At the top of the page you can easily subscribe to their newsletter to alert you of new articles. Check it out.
Always working at arm’s length from the church governance system, the Observer’s independent voice has captured the essence of both the church and wider world we live in, managing to be provocative at the same time as being highly respectful of diverse views.
