The Gospel According to James
Almost 30 years ago, I received a bachelor's degree in Mass Communication from the Henry Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia. I am grateful for that education, for it helped me develop some critical thinking skills that continue to serve me today when it comes to filtering the messages I receive through the media.
I remember thinking then that the news seemed so "negative", focusing on crime, despair, war, pillage, conflict and strife. Back then, you really had to dig to find some "good news".
Well, now in the 21st century, data mining is easy. With the help of news.google.com I can receive inspiring stories based on whatever keywords I'd like. Links to the news stories from media outlets and blogs around the planet arrive effortlessly in my inbox each day.
I'd like to share some of this good news with you today, and hear from you if this meets your needs!
