Church Minister uses stories as centerpieces for sermons

I've begun using your Good News stories as centerpieces to my Sunday sermons at church. A Christian message is one of "good news' and our congregants thrive hearing these news items from the real world. It takes our Christian message to a new height.

With all the negativity in sports these days

With all the negativity in sports these days (i.e. Michael Vick, steroids, exorbitant contracts, etc.) I'm glad to see GNN come out with a sports section to report all of the good things that are happening in the world of sports.  Great for kids and adults to view the good side of sport celebrities. I love GNN.  It starts my day off in a great frame of mind.

I read some research on the effects of bad news…

My daily habit a year ago was to read the news with my morning coffee. I felt the entire world was falling apart and getting worse day by day. Then I read some research on the effects of bad news, and made a conscious choice to read uplifting stories... Now I’m excited about all the wonderful things around the world, instead of feeling helpless. When I read the stories on GNN I feel empowered, included, and encouraged to get involved.  - Kerrie S., OK

GNN has really changed the way I see the world…

GNN has really changed the way I see the world. A few months ago I realized that I was getting really bogged down by all the terror and destruction that hit me first thing in the morning, and throughout my day. Now, with the Good News Network set as my homepage, I see first the good that goes on in the world and my attitude and state of mind are much better.
