Welcome to Good News for Today from Baptist Press. We share and spotlight the good God is doing in this world. Through the stories of Baptist Press, we’ll introduce you to Christians and churches who are making an impact for the glory of God.

Rosalynn Carter’s Funeral, Giving Tuesday & Lead With Integrity

The funeral of First Lady Rosalynn Carter is scheduled for Wednesday in her home church in Plains, Georgia. #GivingTuesday is a refreshing change of pace at the start of the Christmas shopping season, which is often filled with buying gifts, and typically kicks off the year-end giving season. And, Indiana pastor Stephen Viars offers four tips on how to lead with integrity.

Shopping Around Thanksgiving, TSA Reminder & Join in Praying

According to Forbes, Americans spent around $35.3 billion dollars in 2022 during the Thanksgiving weekend…of course, that includes Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The TSA is reminding air passengers that some Thanksgiving goodies aren’t allowed through airport security. And, as the conflict in the Middle East continues, don’t lose sight of the power of prayer.

Terrorists Aren’t Freedom Fighters, Thanksgiving Traffic & Overcoming Fear

Nearly 40 years ago, terrorism expert Brian Michael Jenkins made this claim, “The difficulty of defining terrorism has led to the cliché that one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter, implying that there can be no objective definition of terrorism, no universal standards of conduct in peace. That is not true.” AAA projects 55.4 million travelers will head 50 miles or more from home over the Thanksgiving holiday travel period*. An article in the Baptist Press Toolbox offers help to overcome fear.

About the Program

You’ll hear stories of how God is using churches like Champion Forest in Houston to reach hundreds with the gospel of Jesus Christ…

How disaster relief workers brought fast and gracious physical and spiritual help to those affected by deadly tornadoes across the south and midwestern portions of the United States…

Even how God used a 37-pound catfish to send missionaries to the ends of the earth.

Those are the stories we’ll tell on Good News for Today.

The new broadcast is hosted by Baptist Press Editor Brandon Porter. Porter was a pastor for more than 20 years and the former editor of Kentucky Today, the Kentucky Baptist Convention’s news outlet.

There he reported on state and national news, religious liberty issues, tragedy and disaster, and published policy pieces and op-eds. Since 2003, Porter has also hosted a weekly 30-minute teaching and talk program on WKCT in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

“The world needs to hear more good news about our awesome God,” Porter said. “The news industry is typically driven by controversy, conflicts and issues, but Baptist Press has the unique opportunity and ability to share good news stories of our good and loving God.”
