Back in 1977, we used a typewriter, rubber cement, and sewing scissors. We had a blanket instead of a door at our office in the Noe Valley Ministry. In the '80s, we got a Kaypro computer with a loan from Sally's grandmother. We got a hand-held waxer and a real door. We even got curtains. During the '90s we got miniblinds, a Power Mac, and some white plastic office furniture. And nearly everyone who contributed to the Voice got paid something. That's progress.
Are we grateful? Yes, we are. Thank you, dear writers and artists, families and friends. And thank you, dear readers and advertisers. Thank you for giving us the space and encouragement to do this again and again.
