Introducing Faithlife News

News plays a vital role in communities: it starts conversations, fosters empathy, promotes change and affects decision-making at the highest levels of organizations. Consequently, it becomes increasingly important for people to read widely and stay informed.

Faithlife recently launched Faithlife News, a service that aggregates and delivers the latest breaking Christian news from a variety of websites and blogs. Every fifteen minutes Faithlife News updates with stories from dozens of well-known publishers such as Christianity Today, The Gospel Herald, The Christian Post, World Magazine and many more.

    Why are not all news articles for faithlife News grouped together on the Logos home page? It would make it more efficent and easy to read especial if it updates every 15 minutes.

      That’s a great question, Charles. Your Logos home screen pulls from the RSS feed of every “blog” you add to it. This allows it to provide the most up-to-date posts as soon as they’re live, so you consistently see the newest information first. Verse of the Day and Faithlife Today have fixed slots which the most recent posts appear in, but you’ll notice that older episodes of Faithlife Today also appear throughout your home screen.

      Are you suggesting that Faithlife News has a unique section like this, but that it populates with more than one post at a time?

      We’ve felt that it was more relevant to Logos users for us to organize most information based on recency, so that the newest information is always the first thing you see.

      I would imagine that even if you have several blogs listed on your home screen, you will still see most Faithlife News articles grouped together, since they update so much more frequently.

      Thanks for your suggestion. I’ll pass it along to the Faithlife News team.

    The plugin doesn’t update at all. It’s been a few months and the news have been the same throughout. Is this plugin still working?

    • Ryan Nelson says

      Hi Conan. I’m sorry the app isn’t updating. Thank you for sharing. As far as I know, there’s no one working on Faithlife News. We may make updates in the future and continue building on it, but at this time, there are no plans to.
