“For most folks, no news is good news; for the press, good news is not news.” Gloria Borger, journalist
So, why do we watch it?
More often than not, I end up clueless in discussions about what’s going on in today’s news because I don’t tune in. I used to at least keep up on Facebook. I’d click a link here and there, but it’s been months since I’ve even done that. The less I click, the happier I get.
Just out of curiosity, I googled articles about why we should watch the news. I already had plenty of my own reasons why we shouldn’t. I jotted down some of the former.
Watch the news because it …
- Makes us interesting.
- Keeps us involved.
- Breaks down barriers between people.
- Allows us to participate in history.
- Enlightens us so we can impact our world.
- Helps us understand why things happen.
- Illuminates truth.
Informed to Transformed
The more I read and took notes, the more the list confirmed what I’m learning every evening during our online meetings around the American Campfire Revival. For the past 48 nights, Kirk Cameron’s informed a group of more than 20,000 of us about who to get our news from and where we can find it – God and the Bible. I didn’t realize until tonight, though, how much I’m also being transformed.
Every single reason on the list above offers motivation to read the Good News, not the media’s bad news. I stopped watching reporters years ago, but not until the American Campfire Revival did I replace their updates with a nightly ritual 100 times more powerful and informative and transformative.
Best of all, Kirk’s message is God’s message, and both are full of Hope and the promise of “heavenizing” earth.
For more good news, I’ve included a story at CBN News about “American Campfire Revival: Millions Join Kirk Cameron in His 100-Day Plan to Build a Godly Nation” and a link to Kirk Cameron’s Facebook page.
Anyone else tuning in to hear more about the solution instead of the problems? Me too.
In This Together,
