What Grieving People Wish You Knew by Nancy Guthrie, Free for CAPC Members
Nancy Guthrie’s overwhelming message in What Grieving People Wish You Knew is to enter into the awkwardness and difficulty of loving grieving people.
This November, CxPC will celebrate its tenth year of providing thoughtful cultural criticism to edify the church and witness to the world. The site has changed dramatically since 2007, and so has the market for Christian cultural criticism. To start this next year (the CxPC calendar begins in November), we will be rethinking CxPC’s purpose and role in the church and the online publishing space. Look for us to unveil the new direction for the site in the coming month. But the first part of our new initiative is to find young visionaries to train as future leaders of CxPC.Calling young visionaries! Apply to our editor-in-training program and become a future leader of CxPC.
When Rich and I began the site, we were both in our mid-twenties. We had no publishing experience except blogging. We had no connections. We had no budget. But we loved the church; loved what was good, beautiful, and true in culture; and loved writing, editing, and publishing. To make the site run, we put in serious time and thought, we experimented, we failed a lot, and we managed to put something together that was worth supporting. The effort and energy we put into CxPC, especially in the early years, helped make the site successful but it also trained us for future opportunities. Ten years later, I am looking for two young Christians to bring that same kind of energy to CxPC.
We are calling for applications for a unique position: an Editor-in-Training. If accepted, you will learn how CxPC is run, how to work WordPress, how to make editing decisions, how to manage writers and schedules, how to engage with an audience, and other skills related to running an online publication. We will pay you a very small amount (coffee money) which can increase as you master your skills. This position is not meant for those who already have decent experience in these areas. My hope is to find a couple of young believers with a passion for our mission who can bring fresh ideas and energy to the editorial group.
The ideal candidate for this position will have:
