These days, most of our news doesn’t show up on our doorstep; it comes to us on glowing screens as we roll out of bed or wait in the doctor’s office. We’re barraged with titles, lists and pictures begging for clicks. But if you look closely, you’ll see these tiny words in the upper left-hand corner: sponsored.
The content that streams into our lives each day has dollars behind it. Someone has something to gain when you click their headline, and they are using every marketing and mind-reading tool to get you to comply. This, my friends, is the shallow current. The easy stream of news consumption.
We invite you to row in a different direction. Go DEEP. Go beyond the confirmation bias and you’ll find oceans to explore. Yes, it’s true that in these uncharted waters you won’t always agree with everything you see. Together we may weather rapids, waterfalls and whirlpools. This isn’t the lazy river of me-centered media. No, we’re inviting you to dive into the DEEP CURRENT of faith-forming, truth-tracking and hope-heralding news!
Help us fill our sails as we brave these waters. You don’t need to wait for an algorithm to choose which news you see. You can pick up a paddle and determine your own direction. You can decide to see news that challenges, excites, encourages and restores.
Christian Courier depends on your donations to continue providing Christ-centered journalism that goes DEEP and challenges the cultural CURRENT. Are you with us? We’re up the creek without you!
