The Mega-Church

  Sometimes, we are not at our best but we still have to function.   Case in point: I am currently battling a cold and recovering from a migraine at the same time.   Waaah.   I still need to write a blog.    Actually, “need” is not the right word. I want to write the […]


      I’m going to write the blog backwards this week by starting with the answer: “Both.”   Now, I’m guessing at this point you would like me to divulge the question, but if I did that, why would you read more than the first two sentences?   And let us not forget that […]

Beyond the Walls

In the Colonial Section of Santo Domingo: (l to r) Back row: Sor Mercedes, Tom Wetzell, Cristian Del Rosario Urbaez, Joanna Urbaez, Pastor Secundino Ulloa; Middle row: Beth Crosby, Elpidio Zapata, Dan Jones, Alice Urbaez; Front row: Alberto de la Cruz, and Ysabel Paulino.   As many of you know, I’ve just returned from a […]

Who Is This Guy?

I’ve been writing this blog now for several years. I’m not even exactly sure how long it’s been. Maybe five years?    I sit down once a week and try to come up with something that has something to do with Kinship Christian Radio that will encourage you, something that will help you grow closer […]

Christians at the Dump

  One of my favorite books in the Bible is Ephesians.  In it, the apostle Paul uses some of his grandest and most glorious language to describe the love of God in Christ Jesus.    Running under that current of God’s marvelous plan and astounding love there’s an underlying image in Ephesians that’s something we […]

Broken Glass

As I was reaching into the cupboard Monday morning for a coffee cup, I accidentally knocked a different coffee cup off the shelf. It fell to the counter-top and shattered into hundreds, maybe thousands, of pieces. It was an unusual cup in that it was made of thick glass, not ceramic like most coffee cups. […]

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 […]
