Got Good News?

Publisher’s Note

      

I come from a long line of people called to spread Good News. You see my dad, my granddad, my great granddad and my great great grandad all served as pastors spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ- the ultimate in GOOD NEWS for all of us! I can remember as a small child, my grandpa always having with him at least a handful of tracts. For those of you who may not be familiar with this term- a tract according to Webster is “ashort piece of writing, especially on a religious or political subject, that is intended to influence other people’s opinions.” Each of grandpa’s tracts contained a short story and a powerful truth from God’s Word. Wherever he went, whoever he met, it always led to a conversation about Christ and a tract. He would pull one or two or three from his front shirt pocket or from his wallet and place it in the hand of whoever was willing to accept it. I can remember sometimes being a bit embarrassed about his approach to spreading Good News but now years later I can appreciate the passion he had for living every day to tell just one more person about Jesus.

Last month as I was preparing to enter an event, carrying copies of the latest issue of Birmingham Christian Family, I thought to myself- I’m my grandpa! Always armed with Good News to share! For almost 20 years, God has given me the privilege of publishing Good News stories about individuals in our community impacted by the Good News of Jesus Christ. Thank you to all of you who read and share what you read with others- through print issues and social media! Special thanks to our advertisers and community partners that invest in our mission each month so we can spread Good News for free every month.

As Christians, may we always be seeking the opportunity to spread the Good News that was shared with us and impacts us for eternity!
