Fans of “Brothers of John the Steadfast” (BJS) may be interested in a bit of related trivia. The Rev. Dr. Timothy Rossow was part of the Support Staff for the journal LOGIA in its earliest years, 1993-97. In that period, he served as Subscription Manager and Treasurer to LOGIA, both exercising and refining his administrative skills, which he has now put to excellent use as pastor at Bethany Lutheran Church in Naperville and as Senior Editor and Publisher for BJS.
