community is online: issue 2017/01
An issue of community can be 12, 32 or even 36 pages thick. Who has less to read—and who gets more?
The new issue of community is online as of today. It includes Chief Apostle Schneider’s address for the New Year, reports on the Church leader’s journeys to all continents, and elaborates on Church doctrine.
The community magazine appears once each quarter in many languages and variations. The member magazine is available for download on the internet as a PDF or, in many countries, also as a printed issue distributed to the congregations. An archive featuring many old and new issues is available from nac.today in the community section.
Twelve pages: all you need
The core community magazine is twelve pages long. This compact edition contains a foreword by Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider, a divine service report, as well as various articles on Church doctrine.
Thirty-two pages: the whole package
With a page count of 32 pages, the standard edition of community goes on to include special content for children as well as news and information from congregations around the world. In addition, the magazine reports on some of the Chief Apostle’s trips.
Thirty-six pages: including a regional bonus
Regional publications of community feature even more content. Editors in America, Europe, and Asia expand the standard edition of the member magazine to include news and information from their own countries. This enriches the standard issue and offers further reading material of local interest.
Successful collaboration beyond national borders
The member magazine is published by the New Apostolic Church in three languages, namely English, French, and Spanish. Translation into further languages is coordinated regionally by the seventeen respective District Churches.
Approximately eight weeks pass between the editorial deadline and the publication of the magazine. Over this time, editors write articles, graphic artists take care of the page layout, and translators put content into other languages. After all is said and done, all the pages of a particular issue are reviewed and proofread.
The magazine is just one of the international media products offered by the New Apostolic Church. In addition to its official website at nak.org, the Church leadership has, since 2015, also offered the global member magazine community, the online news magazine known as nac.today, and the social network nacworld.net.
So it is that one reader may leaf through a few pages more than others. Ultimately, however, any reader can read any issue—provided he understands Georgian, Romanian, Bahasa Indonesian, Portuguese, and Arabic!
