Over the next several weeks I will begin a blog series entitled, “Good News in A Bad News Oriented Kind of World.” It will be a series of meditations or short stories that offer hope, joy, passion and humor in the midst of a world that often seems overrun with hopelessness, sadness, cynicism and suffering. Some of these posts will include writings from dear friends of mine who are actively contributing to the conversation and have dedicated their lives to offering good news in a bad news oriented kind of world.
Since the Bible forms the lens through which I view the world, it will play a big role in my part of the conversation. However if you are not a fan of the Bible, I still think you might be able to walk away with something helpful. Please don’t worry, this will not be a series of dogmatic propositions. I believe the Bible offers so much more than that, despite the impression us Christ-followers tend to give. So if you need a little dose of hope, joy, passion or humor, or at least believe that a little bit of each never hurts, I would invite you to give this series a read from time to time.
Finally, feel free to join on this conversation with your comments. My only caveat is that I am a terrible writer who is fond of grammatical errors. So if you find reasons to comment in regards to grammar, go ahead and include this with your comments and then delete that portion of the comment. Hopefully that will appease the English teacher inside of you and help you feel better. If it doesn’t, just leave it in. Perhaps I will actually improve.
On that note, enjoy!
