More than 300,000 people subscribe to Forward Movement’s ‘Day by Day,’ their most popular publication. It’s part of FM’s mission to improve the spiritual lives of Christians. Here are my notes from the interview:
Day by Day is headed to Kindle and Nook – and is actively engaging other platforms – to help Christians connect with God whenever and wherever. Daily meditations are free online, and you can now have them emailed for a small fee.

Day by Day Wants You!
Not just Day by Day, whose authors include clergy, lay people, and even prison inmates, but any talented spiritual writer who has something to say – Forward is listening.
