We don’t have to look very hard to find bad news, it's all around us, all the time. The world is filled with it. Lots of the time even the Church’s message can come across as negative and unwelcome.
And yet, as Christ followers we steward the greatest news in the history of the world. “Gospel” itself literally means good news. The Gospel is the good news of God’s love and care for us, the promise that he is for us and not against us, and that he really does intend all things to work together for our good.
