Reflections garners several awards from Associated Church Press
Reflections, Yale Divinity School’s twice-yearly magazine of theological and ethical inquiry, garnered several awards at The Associated Church Press annual Awards Banquet, held May 8 in Arlington, VA.
The magazine, distributed freely to all Yale Divinity School alums and subscribers from outside the ranks of alumni, received second-place awards (“awards of merit”) in three categories and a third place (honorable mention) in a fourth:
Attending the Awards Banquet was Reflections editor Ray Waddle (pictured above), who joined YDS as editor of the magazine three years ago. Waddle, former religion editor of the Nashville Tennessean, is the author of two books and teaches a writing course at YDS during Summer Term.
Among other national publications receiving awards at the banquet were Christian Century, Sojourners, Commonweal, Religion News Service, The United Church Observer, The Lutheran, and Presbyterian Outlook.
ACP describes itself this way: “The oldest interdenominational religious press association in North America, the Associated Church Press, founded in 1916, is an international community of communication professionals brought together by faithfulness to their craft and by a common task of reflecting, describing, and supporting the life of faith and the Christian community.”
The current ACP president is Verity Jones, editor and publisher of Disciples World magazine, who holds both B.A. and M.Div. degrees from Yale.
