April 9th, 2014 No comments

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.)

Singer/songwriter Jessa Anderson releases her new project, “Whole,” this week. Jessa Anderson will be performing, Live from the Junction Center, this Sunday, April 13 at 7pm; more details at http://www.itickets.com/events/323045/Manheim_PA/Live_From_the_Junction_Center.html 

Over at Jessa’s facebook this week, a fan posted this statement: “These songs are a soothing balm to the spirit; beautiful melodies and thoughtful, inspired lyrics.”

The first single from “Whole” is a song called, “Idols.” Jessa was a guest this week on New Tunes at 9 and told me the story behind the song. http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/

For more on Jessa Anderson, go to http://jessaanderson.com/

For the song “Idols,” Jessica writes, “All this time, addicted I, desperate for more and more. I chase the high, but every single time, I come down lower than before. These empty words are on repeat and I can see they’re killing me.”

Jessa’s new project, “Whole,” is available now.

Praise & Worship Show Playlist (4/6)

April 6th, 2014 No comments

A listener named Tom Hubbard spoke with me at the Rend Collective Concert at LBC and made a suggestion for a Praise & Worship Show theme:  “Songs For Men To Sing”.  It’s a pretty good challenge–especially for a female to put together!  Thankfully, Tom also e-mailed me with some song suggestions for the playlist!  Now, I think this edition of the program will relate to and be enjoyed by all humans–so ladies, no need to skip this week!  Men (and women) of faith, rise up and sing!

If you have theme suggestions–or song questions–feel free to get in touch!

Moment Of Celebration-Communion

April 3rd, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the significance of the bread and the cup.

In First Corinthians 11:23, the Apostle Paul wrote, “The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.’

Communion is a time of remembrance to the defining moment in history when the love of Jesus was poured out for us sacrificially so that we could live for His glory, live through His power, and live with Him in relationship forever.

Whenever we eat the bread and drink the cup of the communion table, we proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.

The significance of the bread and the cup is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Jonathan Thulin

March 26th, 2014 No comments

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.) Singer/songwriter Jonathan Thulin was a recent guest on New Tunes at 9. The Swedish born artist, who makes his home in Minneapolis, has released the project “The White Room,” on Dream Records. Jonathan Thulin began singing at an early age and began traveling around the world with his parents at age 11. (His parents, who were evangelists, toured with The Gaithers and Carman, among others.) Thulin, whose also recorded and written songs with the band, Press Play, continues to mature as a songwriter. “This album was different for me,” he says, “I didn’t strategically write songs as I usually would,” The first single off “The White Room” is a song called, “Architecture.” Jonathan writes, “You build me up like a city of gold. The battles rage but I’m standing tall. You formed my heart like an empire. The wind and rain can’t stop this fire.” (Jonathan spoke about the song on New Tunes at 9. http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/) For more on Jonathan Thulin, go to http://www.dreamrecords.org/, or visit https://www.facebook.com/jonathanthulin. Thulin is spelled “T-h-u-l-i-n” and pronounced “too-lane.”

Moment Of Celebration-Resurrection and Life

March 26th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on Jesus as the Resurrection and the Life.

In John 11:25, Jesus said to Martha: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”

Then, He turned to Martha and asked her a question that is relevant for us as well.  Jesus said, “Do you believe this?”

There are various beliefs about Jesus today. Some say that He was a good man, who demonstrated wise teachings and who did good things for people, but not more than that. To others, He is a swear word. To others, He was a deceiver. Others echo the response of Martha, who said, “Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.”

By saying this, Martha was affirming that Jesus was not just another ordinary man, but that He came from heaven as a promise from God, and is the source of eternal life for all who trust Him for salvation.

The eternal life that Jesus offers us is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
