What is the Good News & who is it for? 

Today we hear news in many ways. Every day we find out the latest news. Sometimes we hear good news and sometimes we hear bad news. Sometimes we hear news from a friend; sometimes we hear it on the radio, or the television, or even read it on the internet. On that night in Bethlehem, the shepherds heard the best news the world will ever hear, and they heard it in a wonderful and very surprising way. The angel moved first to calm the shepherds’ fears. Then he announces the good news that results in joy…not just for Mary and Joseph, but for all the people on earth

Luke 2: 10-11

10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
