This year, we are celebrating seven years of God launching and
advancing the vision for the Love Movement, which birthed Love Is
Moving magazine (LIM).
With the production of the Love Movement’s Take Action Video Series
and study guide in 2011, the spin-off Love Is Moving TV series that
aired on national television in 2013, and the support of The Evangelical
Fellowship of Canada (EFC), we stand amazed that over one hundred
and twenty thousand copies of Love Is Moving magazine have been
printed to date.
In 2016, we proudly partnered with the Canadian Youth Workers
Conference to initiate our first national conference partnership.
Through sharing insightful and inspiring written pieces in the print
and digital versions of Love Is Moving magazine, video and digital
platforms, we continue our commitment to making known the love of
God through Jesus Christ.
To date, we have had the privilege to produce and publish nine printed
and 21 digital issues of Love Is Moving magazine. We are very grateful
for those who have blessed us, including our creative team, EFC staff
members, mentors, volunteers, readers, contributors, encouragers,
subscribers, and donors.
As we acknowledge our supporters, we also need to take a few
moments to apologize to some of them. In the March/April issue of
LIM there was a satire article published about a fictional translation
of the Bible entitled, The Happy News Translation of Scripture Set to
Release by Jesse Hove. We acknowledge that this piece should have had
a disclaimer that clearly stated it was a satire article and should not be
taken literally. We intended for this piece to be funny, thought-provok-ing and poking fun at how far things can go if we don’t hold Scripture
sacred and set apart from poetic license. We further frustrated things
by putting text at the end of the article that was not clear either. To
those who were offended, we offer our sincere apologies. In this current
issue, on page 19, Jesse Hove explains why he uses satire and affirms
his steadfast desire to uphold the integrity of Scripture.
We would like to thank you for reading our magazine closely and taking
the time to comment. We appreciate your feedback, financial support
and encouraging words. God’s love is always moving!
