Are you a minister?
I am addressing this article to those who may lead a church, be a minister or be on staff in a church.
My heart with Positive News For You is birthed out of my personal love for God, whom I call Jesus. I am a believer as well as being a minister for over 25 years. (For 10 years I have been on staff at Village Church, in Swanzey, New Hampshire.)
For me, I believe the Gospel of Christ, is Good News.
1 Corinthians 13:7 AMP Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening].
Philippians 4:8 NIV Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.
I did not grow up in a positive environment as a child, but somehow the Lord took me as I was and brought me to a positive outlook on life. I am not by nature, an optimist, but He changed that as well.
Because the Gospel is the Good News, it is important to me to focus on what is good. There is enough negativity and name calling without me participating in it. And at the heart of what I do is the message of goodness, giving and restoration.
As Positive News For You grows I plan to reach out to communities and encourage people to do wonderful things in their communities. Good things that cause people to feel good and want to do more. To participate in.
We recently got behind the band, Recycled Percussion and what they were doing to bring toys to underprivileged children for Christmas. Before that, it was a program of giving to the homeless. Now we have launched an initiative to put toy bears in the hospital with children. (It will soon be bigger than that!)
We love publishing what churches and ministries are doing to be a blessing where they live. We are always on the lookout for articles, pictures and videos of good things happening across the nation.
Maybe you see things we could do better. Tell us. Maybe you know folks who could help us. Please tell us.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope you will peruse our site, join our Facebook page, and most of all…Pray for us!
