This was the blog post I had scheduled to go up on Tuesday, Day 219, but I was on staff retreat at Graves Mountain Lodge with a spotty Internet connection and it didn’t work. So, I’m posting it today, instead, with gratitude for those people who understand technology, who make the most of media, and who find creative ways to get the Gospel to the people. Thanks, TV crew!
I’m on staff retreat today, and it seems only fitting that I share with you some of the good work our staff and volunteers do every week to help bring the Kingdom of Heaven to Richmond and and the surrounding region.
I can’t tell you how many times people approach me in public to tell me what a gift our television ministry is to those who can’t make it to church. In hospitals, prisons, nursing homes, and even some retirement communities, the weekly broadcast at 11:00 Sunday morning on Channel 8 is a window into a world some people miss terribly. They love it that the broadcast is a full hour, and that it includes the hymns and prayers.
Of course, for those of you who can make it to church, and who live in the area, I hope you will turn off the television and come!
There’s nothing quite like being there.
