“PLAYING FAVORITES” and MEMORY JOGGERS PLAYLIST for SnT Spotlight Saturday October 22, 2011

I used to hate the phrase “playing favorites”. Didn’t you? It seemed so unfair. Just because someone in authority liked somebody else, the favor was bestowed on them. As in a teacher’s pet. Or the glad handing back slapper who was promoted over you. Hmmm. Could that be considered a type of grace? I’m not a theologian but I do know that the word “grace” means “unmerited favor”. Isn’t that exactly what God gives us… unmerited favor? Doesn’t He play favorites with His children. He bestows blessing after blessing on us and sometimes it is not deserved. He is a good, good God and always working things out for our benefit even when times are difficult. That is but one reason out of many to give Him praise every day. Imagine, the Creator of the Universe is working behind the scenes to create good in our lives and even when we don’t deserve it. Talk about playing favorites. I shudder to think about what my life would be like without Jesus Christ. He was sent by God to make all our lives better by His death and resurrection. If anyone did not deserve to suffer and die, it was Jesus. He lived a sinless life, yet He took on our sin and paid the price that we may have the free gift of eternal life by faith. As a result, we are redeemed and enabled to have fellowship with a Holy God. (Can I get an Amen?) That is Grace at its finest. It really does come down to playing favorites.

In another definition of “playing favorites” as in your favorite Christian Music, is an important function of SnT If you listen then you already about the breadth and depth of our playlist every day. This Saturday, SnT Radio will spotlight some memory joggers… Songs you haven’t heard played on the radio in quite a while. The album artwork corresponding to many of these songs is posted for your perusal. I even picked out a couple of album cuts that were “turntable hits” from back in the day like Barry McGuire’s Baby Huey, Quaismodo from Lifehouse, and the Francis Schaeffer inspired The God Who Is There by Gerry Limpic. If you’re like me, Noel Paul Stookey’s Wedding Song from 1971 was sung at my Wedding service. It is good to hear these from time to time and remember those times in our lives. It can keep you young at heart. The list is deliberately shorter than the usual 24 so that several will be repeated throughout the day just in case you can’t listen all day long. So enjoy the music and the memories!

One Step to Economic Recovery – Just In Time For Christmas.

As a follower of Christ, I am commanded to support my brothers and sisters in the body of Christ. There are many ways to do this but I’d like to strongly suggest just one practical idea.

START BUYING FROM A CHRISTIAN OWNED BUSINESS FIRST. It really doesn’t matter how big or small.

Yes Virginia, I am doing the internet equivalent of shouting. I would shout this from the rooftops if I wouldn’t be arrested for it. America’s economy is built on hundreds of thousands of small businesses. Not the big corporations that many are rallying against. Many are called “sole proprietorships”. This is where a single person owns the whole business. A family is dependent upon the economic success of that small business. How well they are fed, clothed and sheltered is determined by the success of that business. If sales are down then it affects the quality of life that family has. Given the past few years in America, I think many such businesses (and associated dependent families) have gone through their savings trying to stay afloat. So now it is crunch time. We can all make a difference if we collectively decide to.

Isn’t it reasonable to think that if you and two friends from where you worship starting getting hair cuts from another Church goer that owns a Beauty or Barber Shop that it would make a difference? Or start having a meal or coffee at the diner another Christian in town owns. If we, the body of Christ began doing business with other Christians first then wouldn’t that help meet the needs of our brothers and sisters? As their sales increase, they would get just a little more economic breathing room. Which means less stress from living so close to the edge of ruin. That could mean happier and more secure Christian families. What a blessing to bring one another, But the blessing wave wouldn’t stop there. Christians would have more money to share in the offerings at church. Maybe they hadn’t been able to give in the past but now they can. The Churches will then begin to have more economic breathing room too. Maybe some repairs can now be made. So the church contacts their Christian contractor and the wave of blessing continues. Or the Church now can afford to feed the homeless in their community. The cycle repeats and positively affects even more people.

So as you plan your purchases… BUY CHRISTIAN FIRST! Especially with Christmas coming. By changing your buying behavior now, you can bless countless others just in time for Christmas.

There are many ways to find the Christian owned businesses in your area. Ask your Pastor or Church administrator who they are from your church. Some put a little fish or icthus symbol in their yellow page and newspaper ads. You’ve seen them – a lot of people put those on their cars. In your town, check to see if there is a Full Gospel Businessmen or FGBMI organization. Maybe there’s a Shepherd’s Guide or Christian newspaper available at your local Christian Bookstore. It may take a little effort but I know you’ll be blessed by being a blessing to others.

SnT wants introduce you to a website called the Christian Business Owners Expo. It is a listing of Christian Owned Businesses by city. They hope to be nationwide soon but right now their focus is on Florida, Arizona and Illinois.

Speaking of Christmas, this year SnT is celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas starting Monday December 12th. It will feature only those songs that keep Christ in Christmas sung by Christian artists. Not snow men, reindeer or that other fat & jolly saint nick. Just Jesus and the scriptural celebration of his birth. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Just ask my wife. She’ll tell you that I am capable of listening to Christmas music 365 days a year. If I can get to it, maybe I’ll record a couple arrangements Christmas songs I did for solo guitar and put them into the 12 days of Christmas playlist.

Please… Buy Christian First. It is one step to economic recovery — and just in time for Christmas.

Update to Hello, Goodbye and We’ll Meet Again Robert… and the Robert List.

It’s been over a month since I first wrote about Stage 4 cancer patient Robert Keith and his family. Many have asked what has happened to them. Some have asked how did God answer all the prayer that happened on Saturday September 3, 2011. I want you to know all this and more because it is quite remarkable.

First of all, Robert is still with us and we celebrate the time that the family has been given together. This week, his hip was pushed out of joint by tumor growth and he is in a lot of pain. The pain management staff are doing all they can to make him comfortable. I wish that was all the bad news to report but that is minor compared to what you will read. The very Saturday we all enjoyed an uninterrupted 80 minutes of his favorite music both his wife and adult son learned that they were being laid off from their jobs at a local hotel.

Robert’s Medicare benefits ran out a few weeks ago and he was moved to a different hospice who accepted Medicaid about a block away from the rented home where his family was living. Yes, that was not a typo. They were evicted by force last Saturday due to no fault of their own. The homeowner had defaulted on the mortgage so the bank foreclosed. Because Robert’s wife and adult son no longer had jobs, they were given 24 hours to move out. Without visible means of support, the bank would not work a payment plan for their month to month lease for which they had always made timely payment.

This is where they went. Right back to the very hotel where they were laid off. The manager has allowed them to live temporarily and will accept any payments they can make on a discounted rate for the month of October. There is no assurance beyond that.

Robert’s wife and son are handling all this with an amazing confidence in God’s plan for their lives. Right now, their focus is on Robert and not on the accompanying drama. Having additional time to share with a loved one is priceless. Not having to work at such a time, which allows for more time together can also be a blessing.  Despite all the negative circumstances — this family has spent a lot of quality time with one another. That is the bottom line.

Perhaps not having to deal with keeping up a home is also a real time saver. This too allows for more time to be spent with the loved one. But being suddenly uprooted is never a nice experience. So on Saturday, October 8th, we’re going to feature songs from the Robert List all day long. Plus, I’m going to play a few special ones for his wife and son. If you would, pray again for the Keith family. I know at the very minimum they need encouragement after all they’ve endured and the ordeal is not over yet.
