is our second such request in seven years.

The Worldwide Faith News Advisory Group is seeking comments and
suggestions from users of the WFN data base of news releases ,

The Advisory Group is composed of communication executives
(by various titles) from the WFN participating faith groups.  A listing

Worldwide Faith News is now in the seventh year of operation.
Testing was done during the Fall of 1995 and the site officially
opened on December 24th that year. More than 20,000 official
news releases from faith groups around the world have been
placed in the searchable data base and a growing number
of faith groups and organizations are joining in the WFN project.

We invite your responses.  If you wish them kept private, please tell us so.
