A while ago I considered making a "Gospel Report" website where links to various news articles specifically relating to Christianity, including those about missionaries, churches, and Christian perspectives of current events could be posted.
I have recently been considering this again, and would love to brainstorm it with some people. I couldn't do it on my own (as I had attempted before).
If you are interested in helping out, reply to this post or DM me.
Community-submitted might work even better now that you've brought it up.
The website could implement a combination of all of those if that's decided to be the best option.
No doubt. Pros and cons to all three models mentioned.
Huge time commitments for (1) a few coming up with all content or (2) moderating a resource like this about religion (as you mention).
Feed aggregation would alleviate a lot of that. Find good feeds from the right sources, and it automates. But, it loses any community aspect and just becomes another pipe of content. I think that defeats the spirit of it.
As @josias mentioned, perhaps a mix?
I also want to come up with an inbox of sorts for anyone to suggest links to add. That way the curators are not burdened with the whole task of finding things to add.
This was the first implementation I wrote a couple hears ago: https://github.com/masterofthetiger/report
@TMakarios Thank you! This is helpful as we need a variety of sources, though the articles are pretty saddening.
They do have good news, too, like https://barnabasfund.org/magazine/setting-free-and-building-up-further-support-for-pakistan-s-brick-kiln-l/
I also often get good news from another organization, but they often put it on paper only, to protect the people involved.
But yeah, news from the persecuted Church often involves persecution.
