Greatest lesson learned?

“You have to be a part of your local community in order to properly report on it.”

“I think that you have to be involved with local charities, spend time in soup kitchens, visit schools, attend sporting events, go to local festivals, eat at local diners, talk to people at the hardware store, anything that gets you out among your viewers so you can hear their concerns and better understand what they feel is important.”  Winston-Salem Journal   https://goo.gl/tiVtp1

LUKE 2…

8In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. 9And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. 10But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; 11for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12“This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”
