Future Radio

  When I was about 12 years old, I bought an enormous radio at a garage sale with a wooden case and the ability to receive not just the AM radio stations everyone listened to, but also short-wave and other radio bandwidths. Inside this amazing device were glass tubes that glowed with an eerie orange light […]

FREE Prize Inside!

  Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, […]

The Gray Days

January in Kinship Christian Radioland can be tough. After the joy of the first snowfall and the wonder of the glorious Christmas season, many of us experience a kind of post-holiday come-down. The days start to get kind of gray and sometimes we go more than a couple of days without actually seeing the sun at […]

Happy Arbitrary Point in Earth’s Orbit

  Ever wonder why January 1 starts a new year?    I mean, why this specific point in earth’s rotation around the sun? Wouldn’t it seem more logical to begin our calendars at the beginning of one of the seasons –like spring, for example?   As it turns out, it used to.    According to […]

What if Christmas?

  I’m not ashamed to admit I found it difficult to go into work on Wednesday after four solid days of Christmas. The transition was a bit jarring.   And it got me to thinking “What if we were designed and built for Christmas?”   Obviously, we like all the wonderful food we enjoy at Christmas, […]

Baby King

  One of the Christmas gifts I most enjoy is the Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge Christmas Concert.    Yes, I pay for the tickets and I always take my lovely wife (Mrs. Hallelujah Jones) as a Christmas present to her, but each and every year I have attended I have received the gift of […]

Fallibility and the Bells

    One of the things God is very, very faithful to do in my life is steadfastly remind me that I’m not all that and a bag of chips.    Case in point: I was recently talking with Allen Jones (no relation other than “brother in Christ”) and we were heartily agreeing on how […]

Make Way for the King!

    As we celebrate the coming of King Jesus all during the month of December on Kinship Christian Radio, I cannot help but think of the glory of this marvelous time of year.   If you think about it, this great and glorious King who created the universe and everything in it made His […]

It IS a Wonderful Life

  Okay, my beloved readers, I am finally ready to confess and reveal a deep, dark secret about myself previously unknown to virtually anyone.    Up until Sunday, November 25, 2018, I had never watched “It’s a Wonderful Life.”     I know, I know. Remain calm. It’s this huge Christmas classic that absolutely everybody […]

Giving Thanks

    The American Automobile Association reports that over 54 million Americans will travel more than 50 miles away from home over the Thanksgiving holiday. That’s a 4.8 percent increase over last year, which is largely attributed to “higher wages, more disposable income and rising levels of household wealth,” said Bill Sutherland, AAA Travel senior vice […]
