What is news? Have you ever really thought about what news really is? Is news just reporting something? Is news when someone does something controversial? Is news when something is done that affects people?
Does news have an obligation to offer opinions, or just state the facts? How do we determine what the facts are, especially if people can’t agree on what facts are?
Here’s what I know – As followers of Jesus, we proclaim news. We proclaim Good News. For us it is the announcement of God’s grace and mercy. It is the promise of resurrection. People will disagree. They may dispute the news. They may not like it. But there it is regardless.
