A cross-denominational group of some of America's most influential Evangelical pastors and leaders has come together to call on Christians to make 2017 "The Year of Good News."
NRB member and Harvest Crusades Founder Greg Laurie, who developed the motivational letter at the heart of the call, is joined by Billy Graham Evangelistic Association President Franklin Graham, Southern Baptist Convention President Steve Gaines, Family Talk Founder Dr. James Dobson, and Salem Radio Network Host Eric Metaxas, among others, in signing and publishing the letter urging American Christians to make 2017 the year they "share the message of Jesus with everyone they can at every opportunity they can."
"In a time of bad news, distracting news, divisive news, disorderly news, and, sometimes, depressing news we – as Christians and as leaders – want to recommit ourselves to making sure that the Good News of Jesus cuts through it all," states the letter.
Christians everywhere are invited to join the "Year of Good News" with the hashtag #YearOfGoodNews, and to add their names at goodnews.harvestamerica.com.
"We need a national miracle to heal our political, racial and cultural divisions, and that miracle is found in the power of Jesus to change our hearts," state the Evangelical leaders. "Therefore, we commit to preach louder than our nation's politics, and we aim to make the message of Jesus Christ transcend the monopoly of our media."
