phil : April 3, 2014 6:05 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.)

Singer/songwriter and worship leader, Brain Campbell, was my guest this week on New Tunes at 9. Brain took some time to talk about his kickstarter campaign, running through this Monday, April 7; more details at Brian Campbell will be releasing a trio of new EP’s this year: “The One Worth It All,” “The French EP,” and “Born Again.”

Brian is continuing his work with Guitars for Glory, an organization committed to providing guitars and instruments for musicians across the globe. (The goal is to raise enough funds to send over 100 guitars, and guitar cases, to those in need, annually.)

As Brian wraps up his kickstarter campaign this Monday afternoon, he’s on his way to Australia to lead worship and play songs off his new EP, “The One Worth It All.” Brain spoke about his connection to pastors, posting testimonies online, and his vision for the project. (Listen here:

Moment Of Celebration-Communion

john : April 3, 2014 8:57 am : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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.

Moment Of Celebration-Resurrection and Life

john : March 26, 2014 2:19 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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.

Moment Of Celebration-Bread Of Life

john : March 25, 2014 5:00 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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

After feeding 5,000 people, starting with five loaves of bread and two fish, Jesus taught a lesson of faith about spiritual bread.

He said in John 6:35: “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

Jesus was inviting us to come to Him for a type of nourishment that physical food could not provide. Blaise Pascal has said, “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God the Creator, made known through Jesus.

There are many different things that people seek to fill this vacuum. Some people seek satisfaction in money, fame, or pleasure. These are shallow substitutes for the long haul. Seeking Christ opens the way for us to live in relationship with God, and to experience His love and righteousness.  In this way, we can have a fulfilling and thriving relationship with God that lasts forever.

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

Moment Of Celebration-Living Water

john : March 24, 2014 5:09 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the living water that Jesus offers us.

Jesus said to the woman at the well, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

Water is essential for us to live. Physical water refreshes us for a period of time, but then we need to have more to sustain us.  Going three days without water puts a person’s life at risk. The water that Jesus offers is enough to satisfy our soul forever.

Today, Jesus gives us the opportunity to drink from the fountain of His grace. This grace is a gift from God. It’s not something that we earn or buy with money. His grace is a gift that we receive by trusting in Jesus for salvation.

Psalm 34:8 invites us to taste and see that the LORD is good. This becomes a reality when we embrace God’s grace.

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

My Field Trip to Pathways Out Of Poverty

kristi : March 23, 2014 5:07 pm : Kristi Leigh, Staff Pages

This week I took a field trip!  I visited the Pathways Out Of Poverty exhibit at HOPE International‘s headquarters in Lancaster.  Pathways out of Poverty is an interactive experience that invites visitors to remember the needy by walking alongside them for a moving journey from poverty to hope.

I’ve heard about the lives changed by HOPE and what they do over the years; but now I feel like I’ve seen it for myself.  I didn’t physically leave the country; but the 30 minute exhibit sure makes it feel that way!  I was given an .mp3 player and headphones and started at the front door of a typical home here in Lancaster County.  Next, the exhibit took me to the huts and hospital rooms of people facing big challenges all over the world.  There are 8 different real-life stories featured.  I saw their faces, peeked into their homes and heard their very own voices describe what they were up against.  If that’s where it ended, it’d be one big bummer–but thankfully the exhibit also shows the difference that HOPE International helped them make in their lives.  It was powerful and something I’ll remember for a long time.  I want to encourage you to visit!  Click here for info at HOPE’s website and to book a time to visit.
