As announced by Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong in a co-worker letter dated October 16, 1978, The Good News will soon be changed into a full-color magazine once again and the tabloid newspaper will continue publication under the name The Worldwide News. The Good News staff has already enthusiastically begun work on the first two issues of The Good News magazine and should begin publication with the January 1979 issue.
I have just had a long telephone conversation with ~r. Armstrong regarding its editorial and graphic content. Mr. Armstrong explained to me that he wants The Good News to be devoted to biblical and spiritual articles to feed the membership. He emphasized that he wants The Good News to be sent to all members and co-workers. He said if the co-workers are supportive of the Work and have their hearts in the Work they should also receive The Good News.
The Worldwide News will resume with its emphasis on news of the Work and its leaders throughout the world, as well as announcements of personal news, features on interesting members and additional articles of a spiritual nature.
Mr. Armstrong especially requested that The Worldwide News be sent free of charge and that it be sent automatically to all members or heads of households. Since it is a member publication it will not be sent automatically to co-workers.
We welcome your comments and look forward to serving you with continued news and encouragement through the pages of The Good News and Worldwide News. We also solicit your prayers that we can make these publications a success and helpful to all our members.
NOTE: We want to thank all the festival coordinators who responded so quickly to our request for information pertaining to the individual Feast sites. This made it possible for us to give a complete and interesting picture of the 1978 Feast of Tabernacles.
