These notes form a natural partner to TN39, We've got news for you! They relate to the idea of giving NEWS to your congregation rather than just information.  There are three parts.

Get into NEWS-mode: Think news, Learn news, Understand news.

Learn how to tell STORIES.

Introduce regular FEATURES.

The notes end with the example of turning the output of a Church Council meeting into a news item, in both print and interview formats.
