Called Together

The "Called Together" banner for the articles appearing in issues of the Adventist Review is based on a Mobius band, created by giving a strip of paper a one-half turn and connecting the ends. The resulting continuous loop illustrates our essential connections to each other, even though we sometimes find ourselves on different sides of an issue -- Editors.
