Introducing Koduteel Magazine

The history of the Methodist magazine Kodu­ teel (On the Journey Home) dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. The first is- sue of Kristlik Kaitsja (Christian Advocate), the magazine of the M.E. Church in Estonia, was published in May 1920, the general edi- tor and publisher of which was Martin Pri- kask. The magazine came out once a month under this title. From September to December in 1928 the magazine was produced under the title Uus Kristlik Kaitsja (New Christian Ad- vocate). The last issue of Kristlik Kaitsja was no 6/7 of the 21st year of publication, that is, June/July 1940. The magazine was issued alternatively in Kuressaare, Tartu and Tal- linn. In addition to Martin Prikask, general editors and publishers of the magazine were Ferdinand Tombo, Hans Söte and Aleksander Kuum. Eduard Valdmann, Voldemar Ojasson and Richard Järv helped as editors.

In 1935–1936 the Kuressaare UMC is- sued the magazine Koduteel once a month, the general editor was Martin Prikask. The publishing of the magazine was started on 28 February 1935 and it became a herald of the Saaremaa churches.

When the magazine of the UMC in Esto- nia started to appear again in May 1990, Koduteel was chosen for its title and the first editor was Urmas Rahuvarm from the Haap- salu congregation. Today the magazine is edited by Kärt Jänes-Kapp and designed by Taimi Pärna. Since 1999 the members of the editorial board are Anneli Klausson, Tarmo Lilleoja, Andrus Norak, Toomas Pajusoo and Priit Gregorios Tamm. Since 2005 Koduteel is issued four times a year, its publishing has been supported by the Church Board of the UMC in Estonia and the United Methodist Publishing House.
