Good News

Today’s Reflection

GOSPEL MEANS “GOOD NEWS.” The Greek word is evangelion. The words evangelist and evangelism derive from this same Greek root. Remember, evangelism is about good news; it should be joyful. …
… Sharing good news is a joyous experience. We need not dread evangelism. Paul offers a joyful witness and believes that whatever the future holds, he will continue to rejoice in witnessing.
