"Celebrate Good News"
We don't have to hunt for bad news...it's all around us. But, so is good news. However, it is not reported the same as bad or troubling or crucial news is. So, this month as we report the good news along with news we need to be warned about, we encourage you to do the same...as we also celebrate "The Good News" of Christmas.
