Time to share a little good news

At a time of distressing headlines, enjoy these positive stories.

By Bobby Ross Jr. | The Christian Chronicle

“We sure could use a little good news today,” Anne Murray sang in a No. 1 country hit in 1983.

Nearly four decades later, negative headlines abound: Mass shootings. The war in Ukraine. Church closings.

Even when the news is bad, The Christian Chronicle strives to highlight Christians living out their faith in inspiring ways, as you’ll notice turning the pages of this month’s edition.

Still, to quote Murray, “One more sad story’s one more than I can stand.” So I asked fellow Christians to share a little good news:

• The Wetzel Road Church of Christ in Liverpool, N.Y., is celebrating two baptisms, minister and elder David Owens said, and welcoming a mission group from the Stillwater Church of Christ in Oklahoma.

• The West-Ark Church of Christ in Fort Smith, Ark., is organizing its first  Vacation Bible School for people with special needs, member Jordon Brown said. 

In 2017, I covered that church’s “Night to Shine” prom for God’s children with autism, Down syndrome and other special needs.

This column appears in the July edition of The Christian Chronicle.
