Every half century or so the Christian Century moves its offices. As our old Dearborn Street neighborhood seems to be “going condo,” we moved to Michigan Avenue last autumn. We’ve traded the historic Old Colony Building for the equally historic Monroe Building. I don’t keep desks in the places from which I’ve retired, but I do drop in on this office, and savor the occasions.
If you are like me, you might like to know a bit about the surroundings from which this magazine issues. I need to know what the New Yorker offices look(ed) like; to picture the studies of writers I admire; to imagine the pulpits of the Harry Emerson Fosdicks and William Sloane Coffins.
