KJOL E-Newsletter Vol. 158 – May 2018

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

- Hebrews 12:1-2 (NIV)

From The Manager’s Desk- Temporary vs. Eternal

David AndrewsIs there anything better than bacon and coffee?? I write this with a grin on my face, knowing both my fondness for those two delicious items, and that I have had bad instances with both as well.  While it is not as hard to find bad coffee, I didn’t think it was possible to run into bacon I didn’t like.  Alas, the other day, I was excited about the rare treat of bacon during a weekend breakfast.  But, the first few bites at the table had the family coughing and gagging unexpectedly.  As a tragic and unfortunate flaw of the manufacturing process, the bacon in question was not just a little too salty, but there was something very wrong.  It was REALLY REALLY salty!  While the rest of the family gave up, I tried and I tried to like it.  I just couldn’t.

Life sure can throw us for a loop sometimes.  One day we are excited about little things that come our way, the next, we are coughing and gagging.  Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in those temporary ups and downs.  I think the temporary must be an attention seeker. 

Yet, for the believer in Jesus, to “live is Christ.” He is our all…He is our victory, our permanence, our blessing, our joy, and our fulfillment...He is life!  He is our home.

In a recent programming meeting, we continued to affirm what we have held from the start…that Christ is to be first and foremost, front and center over all else that comes across this station.  We are excited that our listeners can encounter Christ every time they turn on their radio!  Is that something you are excited about? Perhaps could align with?  Perhaps support? 

You know, with our Spring Friendraiser wrapped up, and having not met our budgetary goals for April, this month of May will be pivotal for KJOL financially.  We could really use your prayerful financial support and commitment right now.   Please consider making an ongoing commitment at www.kjol.org.  And thanks so much for your dedication to Local Christian Radio! 

Kurt’s ♫Music Notes♫- Meet the New Artists

Here’s an introduction to several new artists heard on KJOL, listed with their current songs, which you can hear by clicking on the links.

Pat Barrett
The Way (New Horizon)
Barrett is a worship leader with “Housefires,” a worship band based at Grace Midtown Church in Atlanta.  Barrett co-wrote the song “Good Good Father” which Chris Tomlin made famous in 2015.  Zealand, featuring former Newsboy Phil Joel, also recorded it.

Lucy Grimble
Great Redeemer
Grimble is a native of London, where she has a real estate job by day and has been a worship leader for years.  The London Daily Mail featured her in an article about “young, hip, and holy” Christians who attend inner-city congregations.

Turn My Eyes

Bonray is a group of four siblings:  Zac, Jesse, Jake, and Morgan Bonner from Pennsylvania.  Their father is a pastor and musician.  Their name combines “Bonner” with “ray”, which symbolizes the light of hope they try to bring through their music.

Micah Tyler
Even Then
This former Texas youth pastor (full name Micah Tyler Begnaud) was nominated for a Dove Award as the Best New Artist of 2017.  He told The Christian Post he is learning to live out the message of his songs, as his hometown was hit by Hurricane Harvey, and his grandmother and younger brother both learned they have cancer.
