Editorial: Get Busy Living Or Get Busy Dying

The past few months at National Media have seen us focused on wrestling with two key issues: survival and servanthood. As our finances dwindled, and it became more and more apparent that the move of The Australian Christian from print to the web was a transition phase at best, we stared down two options. To quote Tim Robbins from The Shawshank Redemption, we had to "get busy living or get busy dying". Truth be told, dying would not have required us to be all that busy. It would have been a case of just letting things run down until the money ran out. Yet, there was a feel that we had more to offer, more to be for movement. And that's when we came face to face with the catch-22 of survival.

Thanks Craig for the update.Is it possible for you now to put up on your site the 14 page proposal? This would provide those who have participated in the consultative process to see something of the results of that participation.

Craig, I too would like to see the 14 page document cirulated. Personally, I have found the AC over the last couple of years a tremendous resource and very stimulating. The breadth of views covered and the enlightened editorial policy during this time has been a great encouragement for me. I agree that the launch into cyberspace needed far more consultation and research than it received and it was premature for many of those who have been its loyal supporters over the years but who were not ready to handle the shift from the printed page. It took me quite a while even though I am fairly computer literate. But the idea is too good to lose and I would like to contribute whatever ideas I may have to developing the concept. So, I too would like to see the results of the consultationand I suspect that others like me would like to bounce off it with (hopefully) creative ideas. Gerald Rose
