After months of indecision (and--honestly--no small amount of stalling), our daily (Sunday through Friday, 4pm ET) program is back on AM 560 in Philly, and worldwide at www.wfil.com! And please understand...we’re by no means 100% "ready to rock," but...if we waited ‘til we were completely prepared, we’d never make it back on the air!
I could share any number of reasons (OK, excuses) for why we've been "on hiatus," but you have much better things to do with your time. Most importantly, I believe, I've learned a valuable lesson the hard way. A very smart man once told me that a talk show host--Christian, or otherwise--needs to have the calling and passion of a prophet. For over a year, I honestly lacked the will to be that lone voice, crying out in the wilderness. I had been tirelessly serving through a number of ministries, and had not allowed myself even a moment to stop and enjoy the fruits of those labors. Nor had I taken even a moment to refuel...to refill my spiritual tank...that I might actually have something worthwhile to offer the many deserving ministries that were counting on me. Not to mention, my equally-deserving family at home.
Well, that tank ran dry a few months ago, and there are still only fumes left in the fuel line. And I haven't figured it all out yet, but God has re-ordered my priorities; it's time to get back in the race. My passion has returned, and the calling is once again clear. Simply put: there are too many people perishing for a lack of knowledge of the Truth. And while political hate speech and the latest "Brangelina" sighting might draw a bigger crowd, I'm more determined than ever to use the platform entrusted to me to be a mouthpiece for the Good News. As always, if we are faithful to do His will...God will provide the increase...but in His time, and in His way.
