The Bonus Readers’ Issue! Some of you have been eagerly awaiting this issue, wondering if your submission will be in it. Congratulations to those whose hard work you will find here. And thank you to all of you who worked hard to send us a delightful piece of writing, art, or photo. As always, some of your submissions may still appear in future issues, even if you did not find them in either Readers’ Issue.

As the glories of autumn (or spring, if you live south of the Equator) adorn nature this month, let’s not forget to worship the One Who created all this beauty.
