9/11 & Prayer in America

As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, I find it providential that it falls on a Sunday. Many churches across the country are planning special services to reflect on that fateful event while provide comfort for those who continue to grieve.

I recall attending a prayer meeting at our church shortly after 9/11 and for several evenings in a row, the doors of the church remained open for those who sought counsel or to pray with someone.

For many of us who don't know how to observe such a memorable day, I think the best place ...

Brad Mattes - Director of the Life Issues® InstituteVery few of us will ever experience the stopping of our hearts and live to tell the story! Brad Mattes, Director of the Life Issues® Institute, is a rare exception!

In fact, he's already recoded an episode of "Facing Life Head On" and is ahead of schedule for his daily radio feature, "Life Issues®!" Thank you for your prayers!

Special September Programs for Keep It Simple

911kisAmerica changed on 9/11/01.  We were shocked and stunned that we weren't invincible, that terrorists could attack us on our soil.  It also made most of us think about our own mortality and our walk with God.  

In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of that infamous day in our history, Emilie Barnes has dedicated the Keep It Simple program that airs on 9/9 to honor all we lost on 9/11.  She reminds us that the Lord is our comfort and only hope.

Revive Our Hearts Celebrates 10 Years of Ministry

On September 3, 2001, "Revive Our Hearts" went on the air for the first time with Nancy Leigh DeMoss serving as the successor to Elisabeth Elliot's Gateway to Joy.

Nancy shares, for me, it was the beginning of a new season of life and ministry, one filled with opportunities for faith and fruitfulness.  To say I felt ill-equipped and inadequate for the task of doing daily radio would be an understatement!

As we approach our tenth anniversary, my heart is full of gratitude to the Lord for His incredible grace . . . lives and homes are being sanctified, God is being ...

20 Years of BreakPoint®

Chuck ColsonOn September 2, 1991, Chuck Colson started sharing a daily commentary on cultural issues meant to address the impact of timely events happening in our world.

20 years later, Chuck and the BreakPoint® team remain faithful to this task, reporting the latest news along with a sound explanation for listeners.

When you think about it, Chuck Colson's daily BreakPoint® broadcast was an early blog edition that came ahead of the internet curve and long before anyone knew what a blog was!

But, for many listeners who have tuned in, BreakPoint® has become much more than a blog or a ...

Where were you?

south tower 9/11Where were you when the towers fell?

I was driving up the 55 freeway to Ambassador, listening to the radio and I couldn't believe my ears - a plane had crashed into The Twin Towers ... and our nation hasn't been the same since.

It was a defining moment in our history which is still shaping who we are today.  It's because of that fact that all next week the HAVEN team is producing material around the commemoration of September 11th.

-Tuesday night in New York City, Charles Morris will be recording a special 3 minute commentary that ...
