Moment Of Celebration-Joyful Occasions

john : May 15, 2014 3:28 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK -Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the opportunities to join joyful occasions.

When you think of joyful occasions, what are some situations that come to your mind? It is likely that when a joyful occasion comes to our mind, that we will picture several people being there to enjoy the festivities.

Entering into someone else’s joy is expressing sincere friendship just like having the compassion to enter someone else’s pain. Romans 12:15 urges us to rejoice with those who rejoice.

In Luke 15, Jesus told three stories of something or someone who was lost and then was found. In each story, the person who found the object or person who had been lost, wanted someone to celebrate with. Who do they call? Friends, neighbors, and family members.

It’s the people closest to us with whom we want to celebrate. This is something to consider when we receive invitations to weddings, baptisms, award ceremonies, graduations, or anniversary celebrations. We may not always be able to attend every celebration, but receiving such an invitation means that someone wants us to join in their celebration, and we have an opportunity to express our joy in their joy.

The opportunity to join joyful occasions is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Moment Of Celebration-Compassion

john : May 15, 2014 3:04 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the compassionate expression of a sensitive heart.

Romans 12:15 urges us to mourn with those who mourn.

There is a wise saying that cautions us from singing songs to a heavy heart. When someone hears sobering news from the doctor, or is grieving the loss of a loved one, it is not just a typical day for them. God calls us to be compassionate and sensitive to others who find themselves in vulnerable places. God calls us to take the time to enter their world of pain, to walk with them, and be sympathetic in the midst of their tears. This show of support may look different in various situations. One person may need a listening ear. Another person may have practical needs where we can serve them. Another person might need a shoulder to cry on. The expression of compassion to a troubled soul takes our time, attention, and concern. In this way, we can represent Jesus in difficult places and offer hope and a godly perspective.

The compassionate expression of a sensitive heart is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Moment Of Celebration-Godly Mothers

john : May 9, 2014 4:45 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the influence of a Christian mother.

The Apostle Paul wrote to a young pastor named Timothy by saying, “I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded now lives in you also.”

Here were some faithful women who were witnesses of the Gospel to their offspring. Timothy embraced the same faith of his mother, and that faith that lived in Timothy became stronger and bolder with the encouragement of Paul the Apostle, who was his mentor.

Proverbs 31:30 says that charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

The influence of a Christian mother is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Marty Shaughnessy & the Stars Are Spies

phil : May 8, 2014 7:45 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.)

The Junction Center has been buzzing with activity in recent weeks; Steve Taylor & the Perfect Foil played a show in the tent last weekend with the Peter Furler Band; John Mark McMillan is playing Friday night at the Junction Center Tent. For the complete lineup, click http://www.thejunctioncenter.com/

Two weeks ago, Marty Shaughnessy & the Stars Are Spies played a show at the Junction Center. Singer Marty Shaughnessy was joined by fellow guitarist Steve Bridgeman and percussionist Aaron Gagne (all three of whom played together in the Rainchildren); they were accompanied by Mike Bitts, accomplished bass player for the Innocence Mission (who played both fretted and fretless basses).

The Rainchildren built a loyal fan-base in the mid-to late ‘90s; their independent music was an original mix of rock, roots, and rhythm. Rainchildren played the Creation and Purple Door Festivals, and released several independent projects.

Moment Of Celebration-Greatness Of God

john : May 8, 2014 3:18 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the greatness of God.

These are the words of Psalm 145, starting at verse 3.

“Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They will tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds. They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.”

Here is one way we can apply this portion of Scripture into our lives today. Think of some great deed that God has done such as the creation of the world or His redemptive work of sending Jesus into the world. Then, tell someone about it, and what it means to us.

The Greatness of God is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
