GoodNews Florida

AWord of Thanks What a blessing; we give thanks to the churches that proudly make us available to the congregation and vendors that distribute the Good News to their clients and customers. We've been asking the GOOD NEWS question, "Is it important to you that South Florida have a strong Christian voice in print?" The pastors build the churches and places of worship and preach to the proverbial choir; they show video, message screens, brochures, texts, tweets and emails, and preach... all to the choir. Individually. We are blessed to have such devoted worship leaders. We are blessed to have so many charismatic pastors who lead. The Good News is devoted to being a platform where people of strong faith can launch the word beyond the "choir" and into the com- munity. The Good News often reaches those who may not have a place to belong but are in need of a rebirth. For some, the Good News provides the fuel necessary to help them gather the courage to take a leap of faith and check out one of the many outstanding and devoted ministries found within our pages as we present interviews, fea- tures, reports of what’s occurred "Out and About" or our four-month Calendar of Events. We have had most of our new team in place for almost a year, and even the casual observer notices the vast differences we now present and publish, for you, our faithful readers. We warmly welcome many new advertisers who have answered our question, "Is it important to you that South Florida has a strong Christian voice in print," by saying "YES" we believe it is. They do this by selflessly advertising and supporting our/your mission just by showing their financial support and making it possible to add more pages, more stories, more features, more resources to make it more rewarding and enjoyable – all while hooking you up to do life together in honoring HIM and his word. Welcome to HIS choir. “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds…encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching,” Hebrews 10:24-25. - Les PUBLISHER 2 JUNE 2018 Good News • South Florida Edition South Florida Edition • Good News • May 2018 • Volume 20, Issue 2 - Leslie J.
