My son started his sophomore year of high school today at a school marking its 50th year with the motto, “Tradition Never Graduates.” This phrase sticks with me as I consider an important milestone for “BreakPoint®,” a daily radio program marking its 25th year.
Many BreakPoint® station partners have aired the program since its launch on September 2, 1991. It's become a daily fixture, or "tradition," in your program lineup for many years and even after Chuck's passing, you have continued to carry this important and insightful commentary ...Read Full Post »

The tragic shootings in Dallas, and the equally tragic events that led up to those shootings, cause us all to grieve and to look for answers: Why did this happen, and what should Christians do about it?
The Colson Center's John Stonestreet addresses these questions, and more, in Monday's BreakPoint® commentary and I thought it was important to share these excerpts as you help instruct, encourage, and comfort your listeners . . .
"Last week seems like a bad dream, but it wasn't. Is it even possible to make sense of such cultural chaos?
We're not okay, folks, and ...Read Full Post »

We recently received an email from a station manager who said that reading through all of our emails was "like drinking from a firehose!" I think he meant it in a positive way while making the point that we can easily get overloaded with information. Admittedly, we do send out a lot of info with the desire to communicate important news and happenings from the ministries we serve.
But, I do feel his pain! Most days, I have a hard time keeping up with the news headlines of the day. Developments in technology and social media networks have changed the ...Read Full Post »

This Thursday is the National Day of Prayer. Do you ever feel like you just don't know how to pray? I know I do. Of course we should pray for our country, but how? What should we be praying for such a time as this?
The Colson Center staff will gather to pray with a specific focus on how Christ's church-the people of God-can make a difference in our culture and around the world. They are encouraging you and your listeners to join them; they've prepared a guide available for download.
Here is what we will ...Read Full Post »

I'm back from a whirlwind weekend in Washington, DC where I along with colleagues Evelyn Gibson and Bill Reitler attended the Colson Center's annual Wilberforce Weekend conference.
This year's theme was "Restoring All Things: Christ's Work, Our Calling" with a focus on these areas:
- Promote Good - what is good in our culture that we can promote, protect, celebrate?
- Resist Evil - what is evil in the culture that we can counter?
- Restore All Things - what is broken in our culture that we can restore?
Reflecting on all that the speakers shared, I'd describe our time together ...Read Full Post »

As a BreakPoint® station partner, there's no doubt you're somewhat familiar with the Colson Fellows Program (formerly called Centurions) which is a nine-month discipleship training program for Christian worldview in action. Started over ten years ago by Chuck Colson, this program is one of the ways that the Colson Center equips Christians to help restore a broken culture.
So, why should you consider becoming a Colson Fellow this year? Well, why not?
Perhaps you've considered applying for this program before, but you're delaying the process. You may be wondering how you would benefit from the study ...Read Full Post »
