CHRISTIAN MESSENGER. The Christian Messenger, a religious journal of the Disciples of Christ, was edited in the 1880s by Thomas R. Burnett at Bonham and later at Dallas. The May 16, 1894, issue announced that the Christian Messenger was being consolidated with the Gospel Advocate. Burnett became the editor for that paper.
