“God Bless America” is a beloved patriotic tune we might hum while watching fireworks or standing on the curb at a Veteran’s Day parade. The lyrics take on a whole new meaning when sung by soldiers preparing for battle overseas, however. On today’s program, retired three-star General Jerry Boykin recalls the times he led his troops in singing this song before heading into battle. Join us as he shares a few miraculous stories of war.
Looking for a great Christmas card to send that points back to Christ? We’ve got it! The first Christmas was a blessing and a time to rejoice for mankind. The Savior was born! However, in Heaven a different story was unfolding. The first Christmas represents a loss for Heaven as one of the Godhead came to earth. Heaven’s Loss dramatically depicts that while mankind was celebrating the birth of a King, the angels were weeping for they knew what man did not. They knew Jesus was not born for Christmas — He was born for Easter. This dramatic Christmas card,** created exclusively for Family Talk in collaboration with Ron DiCianni and Tapestry Productions, highlights the beauty of Ron’s original masterpiece while the inside verse — “May the message of Jesus Christ, Savior of the World, resonate in your hearts this season and all year long. Merry Christmas” — reminds all on your list what the real meaning of Christmas is. Plus, your donation will help further both ministries in proclaiming . . . Jesus Christ is Lord!
