Join the Collective

If you are friends with the right people on Facebook, or like the right band pages, you have been hearing rumblings about our work with various artists. While there are no official announcements as of now, stay tuned for some exciting news in the future.

Part of our vision was for this magazine to be a collective of sorts… something that many people contribute to in many ways. We have had a few people contribute, but more will be coming in the future. There are at least four people working on some great articles for this magazine.

Because we desire to be more of a collective, expect to see gradual changes in the future over to a more collective format, especially on the website. We want more people involved – let us know if you have any ideas!

Action Spotlight:

Don’t just complain about the world – do something to change it

Streams of Mercy was “established to meet the needs of the most needy individuals in nations around the world. These individuals are often children who are desperate and helpless in changing their circumstances. The organization is actively involved in disaster relief, both man-made and natural, by mobilizing volunteers and resources to assist those in need. Streams of Mercy strives to meet the most obvious needs of the destitute like food, clothing, shelter, and medical assistance, as well as meeting the less visible needs of care and comfort. Utilizing volunteers with genuine compassion means that resources can get to these individuals with a minimum amount spent on administrative services, thereby maximizing the impact of donations.”  See www.streamsofmercy.org

(Streams of Mercy did not buy this ad nor do they endorse this magazine – just givin’ ya food for thought)

Vision:

Down the Line covers bands that explored the intersection between faith and art in the 1980s through the early 1990s – even though they were probably never accepted in to what is called “Contemporary Christian Music” because they were too edgy or alternative or liberal or for whatever reason. Some of these bands may still be making music today, and others may have moved on. We cover these bands (active or dormant) as well as any new projects by former members of these bands and any new bands that may have the same spirit as these bands.

  1. I’m just getting around to reading this issue. I appreciate the section on Flames. I didn’t realize it, but I probably met him, as I promoted a Stavesacre/Fold Zandura show.
