The WBNH Good Newsletter
We're in this together
When I think of the history of America and compare the COVID-19 pandemic to where we have already been, I think of one word: fear. We live in a new world today, one characterized by fear. Fear is something that can’t be ignored. People respond to fear in several ways. But a quote by one of our previous presidents rings loud – Franklin D. Roosevelt, in his first inaugural address in 1933 in the midst of the Great Depression, said “…the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” In addition to an invisible and deadly virus, perhaps the next greatest enemy we have today is fear. “Don’t fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.” - Isaiah 43:1
God tells us at least 80 times in the Bible not to fear. And here at WBNH, we deem it a privilege to bring the good news of our Savior to our listeners every day. Yes, this pandemic will end some day. We don’t know what tomorrow holds, but we know the One who holds tomorrow. With that assurance, please know that we’re in this fight together. We will keep praising Him with inspirational music and solid Bible teaching and preaching that uplifts the spirit, comforts the troubled heart and brings promise to the redeemed. Thank you for joining us here at WBNH every day. Together, we’ll win this fight. Meanwhile, we’ll continue enjoying the Good News….together.
National Day of Prayer is this Thursday
This Thursday, May 7th, WBNH will air a special program produced by the National Day of Prayer Task Force from 7:00- 9:00pm. With the theme, “Pray God’s Glory Across the Earth” - Habakkuk 2:14, and in response to our present national emergency, this broadcast will include feeds from 8-10 different locations from around the country. It will be multi-ethnic and multi-generational, and include worship by musical artist Michael W. Smith, words and prayers from Andrew Palau, Will Graham, Jim Cymbala and other leaders (all of whom will lead from their own hometowns or cities), along with the prayers of millions of people. Join us this Thursday, May 7, at 7:00pm.
Share 2020 is Coming June 11 – 13
Because of the COVID-19 national crisis, we have had to delay our annual Share. But, we have finally been able to get clearance from the Tazewell County Health Department to once again host our annual fund-raiser. It will be somewhat different this year. We will be unable to open our doors to the public but will only have essential personnel here in the building during the broadcast. So, this year, we’re having our first ever virtual Share! We will have video cameras on during the broadcast so those at home can not only hear via WBNH, but can see our Share via Facebook. We look forward to you joining us for this exciting, ministry event, as there will be a special emphasis on worship and prayer. Our theme this year is “Be Thou My Vision 2020 – I will guide you with my eye” from Psalm 32:8. We’re trusting with His 20/20 vision, that we will be perfectly led again this year. Mark your calendars and plan to join us on June 11.
Mother’s Day is May 10
A reminder that Mother’s Day is right around the corner, this year on May 10. And here is an angle that I had not thought of – maybe you, my Christian brother or sister, hadn’t thought of this either: As a dad and grandfather, I didn’t give this holiday much notice until I got to thinking how much moms do for all of us. Remember all those little things she did for you? Remember how she was always there to hear your stories, your desires, your troubles and your numerous challenges? Remember who you told first when exciting things happened in your life? Well, what about the mother of your children? This year, remember her, too, in addition to your own Mom. Yes, our wives should be remembered on Mother’s Day, too. Just a thought from a “spoiled” hubby! -Jim
Thank You!.... again
We want to again thank you, listening friend and partner, for your participation in this ministry. Yes, we are 100% supported by our listening family for our operational expenses. But, it’s the little notes of encouragement and your prayers that make a great difference, too. Thank you, again, from all of us here at WBNH! We’re looking forward to the time when we can again see you! Until then, thanks for being alongside 88.5FM, 100.1FM, and the WBNH streaming channels.
