Martin Marty leaves 'Century'; Joyner quits 'HDS Bulletin.'
Alas, all good things must come to an end. Church historian Martin E. Marty, who has written for The Christian Century since 1956 (!), pens his final column for the August 26 issue (not yet online). He promises to keep writing, but his "M.E.M.O." column is being retired.
Meanwhile, in other sad religion-magazine news, Harvard Divinity School dean Bill Graham announced via email this morning that Will Joyner, the school's executive director of communications and editor of its excellent magazine, Harvard Divinity Bulletin, is leaving "in order to devote time to personal and professional pursuits." Joyner turned the Bulletin into a magazine I couldn't wait to read. Here's wishing him well!
