Letter: Standard still “going south”

I am still amazed at the way Baptist churches, organizations and publishing groups keep changing the way they do things in order to connect/gain the younger generation never seeming to understand that the younger folks aren’t the ones doing the financial supporting.

I knew the Baptist Standard was “going south” when the format was changed—how many times now? I remember when I was a teen how we would receive the Standard when it was in magazine format. That was a great magazine. Then it went to a newspaper style to be more in tune with the times, I guess. Very wrong move. Then became a slick magazine (CommonCall) with really not much content at all.

We will just have to wait and see if the next move is to do away with it completely. So sad.
