From The Manager’s Desk Changing leaves, Moose Hunting, and ContentmentDavid Andrews

Isn’t fall such a spectacular time of the year??  Colorado in fall is without a doubt a great place to witness the creative work of God in nature.  And those changing leaves paint quite the landscape!   The Grand Mesa and Glade Park have always been a couple of favorite places of mine to see the fall colors.  

But this year, I tried something new.  I went to the…East Slope to view the colors.  I REALLY didn’t need to drive that far; but in actuality, I was in northern Colorado on a rare cow moose hunt (now you know why I wasn’t doing the morning show recently).   The fall colors show up a few weeks earlier there than they do out here, and they were spectacular! The moose hunt itself…well suffice to say that it was fun…but I was unsuccessful in an area I ought to have been successful.  I was bummed. 

On that drive home, I had an inner wrestling between being content and frustrated.  I couldn’t help but think about all the time, effort, expense, and time away from my family, that I had spent on this hunt, just to come up empty handed.  But the book of Ecclesiastes kept popping into my mind reminding me that an awful lot in this life is vanity; and it's so much more important to simply love God, honor Him, and to be content with our lot in life.

1 Timothy 6:6 says “But godliness with contentment is great gain.” 

“OK Lord, I didn’t harvest a moose, but I am young enough I may still get another try, I got to see some amazing country, some amazing animals, and I got to spend time with a couple of my favorite people scouting this country, and hunting it as well.  And now I am headed home to my real blessing, my family.” 

Do  I have this contentment thing in the bag?  Well…no.  But now I am trying.  I do think Contentment and Thanksgiving are close relatives.  So how about a challenge?  Join me, and let’s dust off our old friend “Contentment” this month. 

Kurt's Music News

KurtChris Tomlin was recently awarded the Pandora Billionaire Award.  No, it doesn’t mean he’s rich.  It’s because his songs have had over 1.8 billion plays on the Pandora music service.
Matthew West was named Songwriter of the Year at the 2018 Dove Awards a few weeks ago. 
Zach Williams (the “chainbreaker guy”) was named Artist of the Year, and his song “Old Church Choir” was Contemporary Song of the Year. 
Tauren Wells was named New Artist of the Year.  Wells was the former lead singer for a Christian rock band called Royal Tailor.  He sings “When We Pray.”
Avalon is about to debut a new lineup.  Original member Janna Potter and her husband, Greg Long, will be joined by former member Jody McBrayer, who left Avalon 12 years ago.  Dani Rocca will round out the foursome.  Look for a new album soon.
Avalon will be appearing on “The Greatest Hits Tour” alongside Point of Grace, Rebecca St. James, Newsong, and others.
Bluetree founder Aaron Boyd has decided to go solo.  Bluetree was the name of his band which he formed in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 2009.  Bluetree’s big hit was “God Of This City” which KJOL used as its Sharathon theme song in 2010 (“for greater things have yet to come”).
All Sons & Daughters has retired as a group.  Leslie Jordan and David Leonard teamed up in 2009 after they began collaborating on music as worship leaders at their church in Franklin, Tennessee, a ministry they continue to do together.

Listener Comments- Faithful Friends Respond

"I used to support KJOL monthly. Because of family financial needs, I had to stop all giving to worthy causes. This is a one time gift to help KJOL meet its current needs. I look forward to a future time when I can return to supporting your wonderful station and the other organizations working for the Kingdom of God.
The Lord be with you all." -Allen, Fruita

"Dear KJOL Staff, Music is a beautiful gift our Lord has given us. When I was younger I wasn't as appreciative of it as I am now, especially in the sense of all the varieties and genres as your survey mentioned. ...what I love about KJOL is the depth of all the artists you play. So thank you for giving us here in the Western Slope, Truth in music and teaching. May our Lord bless and keep you and make His face shine upon you. -Mark, Montrose

Dear KJOL staff, Our prayers are with your Christian lives and service to Jesus and others is such a beautiful blessing. Each of you are unique as you serve. We feel God's Holy Spirit as you talk and pray and use your talents for God's honor and glory. Joyce is so efficient and loving. Dave & Leslie do great!! Kurt has a great sense of humor and is smart and a good photographer. Dave Combs and our great leader, Ken Andrews are so great and the new girl (Sat AM) is too. The Lord bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you and give you pace.
-Carol, Fruita
"Thank you for your ministry!" Holly, Grand Junction

"I love how KJOL spreads the love of our precious Savior around the Western Slope. God bless you all abundantly!" -Debbie, Palisade
