“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” – Galatians 5:1, NIV
It’s been a little over two months since we launched this site. In those two months, we’ve published almost 50 news articles and opinion pieces, and we’ve received around 8,000 unique visitors. Considering we launched with a small team and no budget for advertising or promotion, that’s not bad. But we as a team are always looking for ways to improve and move forward. We’re not content to be just another Christian news site – we want to change the future of Christian journalism. We’ve got some exciting things planned for the next few months, but sometimes you have to take a step back to move forward.
As we discussed our vision for this site, one thing kept coming up – our name. We chose the name “The American Crossroads” because we felt it captured what this site was all about – the crossroads of faith and politics. However, we soon began to realize that these issues go far beyond one country. We also realized that some people were confusing us with another similarly named group that doesn’t share our mission.
So today, we’re taking a small step back and rebranding. We chose “Freedom Crossroads” for our new name because it better captured our vision while staying true to the original “Crossroads of faith and politics” theme. Put another way, this site is at the crossroads of spiritual and political freedom.
Going forward, you can expect the same high-quality, thought-provoking content that we’ve been publishing for the last two months. You’ll notice that our logo only changed slightly, and almost everything else will stay the same. One important note: our Twitter handle has changed to reflect our new name. You can now find us @FreedomXRoads.
As we move forward, we are also opening up three new contributor positions. If you want more information about joining our team, you can find that here.
Finally, thank you to our loyal readers for all of your support. We couldn’t have come this far without you.
Soli Deo Gloria.
