This month we take the opportunity to thank a retiring staff member and welcome a new one on board. Matt Kortus spent the past few years on the staff coming up with great ideas for articles and new rubrics and finding writers to write them. Matt is stepping down because of the busyness of this season of his life, which includes pre-seminary courses, work, and being a good husband to his wife Sarah. The staff thanks Matt for the many hours he spent finding writers to fill the columns of Beacon Lights. Abbie Eriks has stepped in to fill Matt’s position. Abbie is a freshman at Calvin College pursuing a nursing degree. The staff welcomes Abbie and the ideas she brings to the magazine.
