PFR Announces Reunion Tour

phil : June 4, 2012 7:14 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

Radio Friend Phil – On the 20th anniversary of its debut album, PRAY FOR RAIN  (PFR) has announced a reunion tour.  The “12 IN 2012…AND BEYOND” tour will be the band’s first national tour since 1997.  The tour will hit PORTLAND, OR, KANSAS CITY, NASHVILLE, INDIANAPOLIS, CHICAGO, ATLANTA, TUCSON, PHOENIX and FLAGSTAFF.

PFR will partner with CHILDFUND INTERNATIONAL, an organization that offers sponsorships for special needs children around the world.  The band chose to work with CHILDFUND, in part, because the bass player/vocalist PATRICK ANDREW is the father of two special needs children.

A fundraising concert for ANDREW’s son in NOVEMBER 2011 was the catalyst for putting the tour together.  “We thought we’d play the numbers game — 2012. Twenty years since our first record, 12 shows,” said lead vocals/guitarist JOEL HANSON, “but then we realized — and we are happy to say — that there seems to be interest out there, so we decided that we are going to keep going — 12 in 2012 and beyond — as long as the requests keep coming in.”

For more information on the tour, cheek out the video here or visit the tour website.

Life Application Truth-Grace and Peace

john : June 1, 2012 3:44 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – From Second Peter 1, verse 2.

“Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.”

This is a greeting from Simon Peter to those who had received the message of faith in the Lord Jesus.  As we get to know God better, several things happen:

God’s grace and peace abundantly blesses us. We are filled with joy at the reality of His presence and forgiveness of our sins. The burden of guilt that we carried is released at the cross, and now, we don’t have to fear being condemned at the coming judgment.

God’s grace and peace also changes us, adjusting our priorities and reshaping our attitudes to reflect the image of Christ.

God’s grace and peace also equips us to be effective witnesses for Jesus, overflowing from our heart and spilling over into our relationships through our words and actions. Others will see the growing influence of Jesus in us as we know God better.

The abundance of grace and peace are vital signs of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.

John Shirk
