‘behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all people…’ – luke 2:10
our current human existence is filled to the brim with bad news – wars and rumors of wars, inequality, poverty, et cetera – the earthquakes of injustice shake the foundation of our nation. yet even in suffering there are glimmers of hope, stories of good news – communities joining together to protect the vulnerable; to provide for the needy; to be present in pain.
even this is glimpse of the kingdom of God on earth, and that’s good news for everyone.
let’s be bearers of good news. may we seek to find the beauty in all things we see and hear today, and participate with the spirit of God in helping bring love and light into our interactions with all people.
i’d love to hear from my readers the stories that come as a result of this action. if you’d like, feel free to share it with the rest of us in the comment section.
