Relationship-Building Principle-Shine

john : October 29, 2015 5:55 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Daniel 12:2 and 3.

“Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.”

As the light of the stars breaks the darkness of the night, so our witness for Jesus can break the darkness of doubt, despair, or deceit as we present Him as the way, the truth, and the life.

Each day is an opportunity to look for connections with people who need God’s saving grace, and then to share the reason for our hope in Christ.

Shining the light of God’s love in our sphere of influence is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Encounter With Jesus-Hope And Purpose

john : October 27, 2015 4:55 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines hope and purpose.

In Philippians 1:21, a follower of Jesus made this remarkable statement, “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”

What did that statement mean for the Apostle Paul? He went on to elaborate that if he went on living in the body, that would mean fruitful labor for him. After he departed through death, he would be in the presence of Christ, which he described as “better by far.” He saw death as a promotion into heaven.

Yet, in the body, he recognized his purpose to spread the good news of Jesus to unbelievers and to build the body of Christ. His relationship with Jesus is what enabled Paul to live with this perspective.

A daily relationship with Christ inspires higher purpose and heavenly hope.

Encounter With Jesus-If God Is For Us….

john : October 20, 2015 3:56 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines His abundant grace.

Romans 8:31 asks the question, “If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”

Sometimes, people wonder where God is, or why He seems so distant. The truth is that God has spoken of His love to us when He sent Jesus to us. The death of Jesus on the cross was the offer of God’s grace to humanity, saying that our sins can be forgiven, and our relationship can be restored to God through faith in Jesus’ name.

In reality, we have run away from God with every sin that we ever committed. Woven throughout the Scriptures is the picture of God pursuing His people. He sought us out for relationship. He seeks to bless us, not to harm us. He is for us, not against us. How will we respond to His abundant grace? Jesus invites us to follow Him.

In saying yes to that invitation, we have the opportunity to enjoy His friendship and Heavenly treasures forever.

A daily connection with Christ gives us security in the arms of God’s grace.

Meet Katlyn Jumper

Katlyn Jumper : October 18, 2015 2:49 pm : Katlyn Jumper, Staff Pages

KATLYN JUMPER – Hello Listeners! My name is Katlyn Jumper and I am a new DJ here at WJTL! You might have seen me or heard me this summer. That is because I am formally  known as Intern Katlyn. Many of you will hear me or have heard me on Sunday’s from 12-6 sharing music, stories and much more. You can also catch me at a few of the WJTL events. I just wanted to take the time for you to get to know me more!

I am senior Music Business major at Lebanon Valley College. Starting last semester, I had a great interest in music streaming and wanted to get my foot in the door through radio broadcasting. Who would have thought that I would be here at WJTL as one of your DJs! As well as a radio DJ, I am a very active member of our music department at Lebanon Valley College. I serve as the 2015 VALE Conference President and will be helping host the 11th annual VALE Conference and is also the 1st VALE Media Industries Conference. I am also an active participant in the Pride of the Valley Marching Band, Jazz Band, Low Brass Ensemble, the woman’s professional music fraternity Sigma Alpha Iota.

While I am not busy with school, I enjoy many other activities including playing guitar, writing music, reading, and traveling to new and old places! I like to travel a lot because I am not originally from Lancaster Country. I grew up near the Wilkes Barre/Scranton area in Luzerne Country. I am the oldest of three siblings. I have a younger brother, Douglas, who is a senior in high school and a younger sister, Lauren, who is a sophomore in high school. When I get the change I love to visit them as well as my wonderful parents and grandparents. I also enjoy visiting my boyfriend Josh, who is a recent graduate of Lebanon Valley College. We enjoy traveling and taking new adventures together.

I have enjoyed my time at WJTL so much that I am looking forward to my future with them. My hope from my journey with WJTL is to grow more in my career, my spirit and my personality. I have so much to look forward too and am ready to continue growing in my broadcasting career! Don’t forget to tune in to hear me on Sunday’s from 12-6. Looking forward to meeting you at our next WJTL event!
