TOTALLY RADICAL!

Sounds like a phrase from the '80s but it's what comes to mind as I read story after story of lives being radically changed after learning how to study the Bible inductively!

Kay ArthurThis is Kay Arthur's passion and why Precept Ministries exists - to establish people in God's Word, helping them discover Truth for themselves.

It's something that isn't found in today's self-help books, something that won't tickle the ears but satisfies the soul, something that is difficult-no, impossible-but for which God supplies the power and the joy.

Something radical!

Goose fat or lemonade? You decide!

When I think of fund raising, I normally think of car washes, lemonade stands, or even concerts.  Chris Williamson, a Swiss lawyer, had a different idea!  Adopting a nautical theme to his cause, he and a team of 3 other friends swam the English channel, crossing from England to France!  This goose fat covered, Speedo wearing team has raised nearly $6,500 for Mercy Ships®!

I'll be the first one to say that swimming for nearly 14 hours isn't my ideal way to raise funds! Thankfully, there are other ways! Pastor Rob and his 38 Vacation Bible School ...

Speaking Up With Compassion

Recording session with Wess Stafford

Tuesday was "recording day" for Wess Stafford...a great time for us (represented by Jim Sanders) to "Speak Up With Compassion®" in Colorado Springs.  Pictured above (L-R):  Lee Geysbeek (new to Compassion!), Krissy Thomas, Wess and Jim.  By the way, if you're planning to attend Momentum in a few weeks, please say "hi" to Lee and Krissy...and be listening for a "preview" of exciting radio news.

Speaking of "exciting"...I know some kids that are not so excited to jump back into the school routine.  If the moms and dads listening to your station need a little help ...
