I recently read a book that discussed the power of individuals sitting on the same side of the table. Being trained as a social worker, the author was taught to never talk to a client across a desk; but instead to walk around the desk and sit in a chair beside the client so there was nothing in-between them.
This is a simple, but very powerful idea.
As a community-supported radio station, I love that God has a place for all us to be part of the Positive Difference.
When you donate, you are helping bring hope in Jesus to listeners like James.
Live in grace today. "I can’t believe I did that," you say with a shake of your head. "What's the matter with me?"
We speak words of love, tenderness, and compassion to each other and then condemn ourselves. We talk to our souls in way we would never speak to a friend. We pass harsher judgment on our lives than we would on even our enemies sometimes.
We've all had those moments. The surprise that took your breath away, or that moment your heart needed encouragement the most.
One of our listeners, Kerry, told us about their moment in a note.
When you are part of KLRC's financial support team, the Positive Difference you make goes into so many places.
Here's what Carissa, a KLRC listener, told us about listening to KLRC while at work...
My life has been a whirlwind the last few days, but after 5 years of adoption "process," the work of 3 US senators/congressmen, prayers and support from too many friends and family to count, and a string of truly miraculous events, one faithful and powerful God brought our family of 6 together for the very first time Thursday night.
Each time I walk in to check on sweet Ruth, I can't believe she is finally sleeping in the bed that has been waiting for her. There are no adequate words to express what this is like. Ruth asked me if America was in heaven, and it most certainly is not, but an orphan coming home is most certainly a really good picture of it (excuse me while I wipe away some tears).
It's Sharathon time!
It's that critical season where we are asking God to provide the funds needed for KLRC, a community-supported radio station, to stay on-the-air and sharing hope in Christ for another year.
That couch you can’t figure out what to do with, those clothes in the back of your closet, the toys your kids don’t play with anymore? Things that seem useless to one person could change someone else’s life.
It is helping change Michelle's life. Michelle recently found herself at the Fayetteville Salvation Army Shelter after having to leave a stressful situation. Because of donations to the Salvation Army Store Michelle received vouchers to be able to shop and purchase the clothing items she needed.
It’s easy near the beginning of the year to start making resolutions and commitments to things we want to do, or people we want to be. Well intentioned, we have every desire to follow through. But the reality is, we often don’t – in fact, we often fail.
We fail in many areas of our lives, not simply resolutions. We don’t deliver results on jobs we’ve committed to. We miss deadlines. We forget critical events. We refuse to see a situation from another perspective. And sometimes, we simply just forget to follow through on what we said we would do- and when we said we would do it.
God is with you. The phone rings, the email comes, the conversation happens, and suddenly your world is sent spinning. How could this happen?
It’s a surprise to you, but not to the One who holds all of time in his hands. In the moments that feel uncertain, you can cling to the only One who is unchanging.
He is with you.
