What’s the Good Word?

I guess I should start off with this word. It just has so very many layers of meaning. Of course in our context many of you may think of “In the beginning was the Word” and surely that was good news! Good news relates to gospel relates to amazing things coming into the world.

The question “what’s the good word?” is apparently an antiquated greeting that really doesn’t mean anything more than Hey, howya doin’? but implies that you’ll respond with something positive and won’t be loading me down with your negatives.

I’m ok with sharing negatives, if that’s what you’ve got and that’s what you need to share, but for the most part, I want this spot to be for the good news, the good word, the quick reports of the many, many wonderful news items I hear all the time and want to share with the rest of you.
So give me a word and I’ll pass it along to the rest of the world. Or at least to as many as want to look in here from time to time. Expect to find the good news when you come to check out “what’s the good word?”
