Christmas as Revolution

  About five years ago I wrote a post called, “Christmas as Invasion.” It made the point that one can legitimately view the birth of Jesus Christ as God’s invasion into the kingdom of darkness by the Kingdom of Light. https://kinshipradio.org/home/2017/11/30/christmas-as-invasion/   Many, many Christmas carols you hear on Kinship Radio sing of the Light […]


  If I stop and think about it, I have innumerable blessings to be thankful for.    Like almost everyone I know, I have been blessed in ways that even people a couple of generations ago could not have imagined. My life expectancy is over 79 years –more than a decade longer than it was […]

Pep Talk

  On Monday, Ryan Freed’s “Burning Question” on the morning show was, “What is your go-to pep talk?”   What do you tell yourself when the chips are down, when you need inspiration, encouragement, and the will to just go on when life is hard?   It was a good morning for that question. It […]

Hephzibah and Buelah

  “For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will […]

It’s Time for Share! Look What God’s Done!

Jesus is LORD!   As Kinship Radio approaches its 40th birthday, those words that Maury Schwen saw on a radio tower in a dream are just as important, relevant, and true today as they were at the very inception of this radio ministry.   No individual in the history of this planet has changed the […]

Sunrise in Israel

  I’ve just returned from two weeks in Israel.   It was glorious, magnificent, amazing, and fabulous.   So much happened and my soul was moved in so many ways, I’m still trying to process it all through the fog of the jet-lag. Here are some highlights:   I met and had a chance to […]

Contagious Joy

  I attended the Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge Gala in Mankato last week which was sponsored, in part, by Kinship Radio.   It was, as always, a wonderful and glorious event. I am blessed to be able to attend and I joyfully support this ministry as has Kinship Radio for many years.   Drug […]

Open Home

    There is a story near the end of Luke, Chapter 10, where a woman named Martha opens her home to the Lord Jesus Christ.   In the story, Martha is remembered as the one who was so busy preparing her home and a meal for the Lord that she more or less scolded […]

All Joy, No Stress

    I have just returned from a wonderful vacation in the big piney woods of northern Minnesota.   The weather was excellent. The fishing was excellent. The scenery was so beautiful as to minister to one’s soul. Our itinerary (Sleep, fish, eat, nap, fish, eat, fish, play snozzle, sleep, repeat.) was perfect as always. […]
