The Spring issue of Anglican Taonga magazine is a quake survivor.
It was printed in Christchurch on Friday, September 3 – just hours before the city was shaken apart.
Glass from the ceiling lights showered the machinery at Toltech Press, but Taonga was already drying under cover in preparation for collating and stapling.
It's now winging its way to every ministry unit in the country.
We don’t feel good that the new magazine contains nothing about the quake.
But the Taonga website is on top of the disaster. At last count we had more than 20 quake-related church stories, and more will be added as Canterbury recovers.
We’ve also posted plenty of photos that you won’t find elsewhere.
As for Taonga magazine: look for it at your local parish this week.
