It has become a Christmas tradition in the upper part of Michigan before you get to the Mackinaw Bridge, to hear commercials from Jay’s Sporting Goods that are bringing people to tears and having them contact this outdoor-related business. This week’s interview is with co-owner Jeff Poet and store manager Mark Copeland as they share about these radio spots that have absolutely nothing to do with selling products. What they are all about is, combating the political correctness of wishing folks a “Happy Holiday” and sharing how Christmas is about the baby Jesus who was born in a manger 2000 years ago and has changed countless millions of lives.

There is more chance mathematically that your car happened by accident over hundreds of millions of years, then just your eyeball having evolved and how it works with your entire body. This is just one of the things that Dr. Richard Swenson shares in the interview with Gerry as they discuss intelligent design and Dr. Swenson’s book, “More Than Meets the Eye”. Having taught surgery at the University of Madison, Wisconsin, and having minored in physics, this interview is jam-packed with information that declares that we have a Creator God.

This week’s program is an interview with Ken and Judy Gingrich about Ken’s new book “The Ultimate Choice”. Gerry met Ken and Judy at the annual 9-day outdoor show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania where Gerry was given a tract about Ken, his life and coming to Christ, called “The Ultimate Choice”. The story talks about a young man who rebelled against his conservative Christian upbringing and eventually became involved with motorcycle groups, like Hell’s Angels and The Sons of Satan. At a point when things were going terribly bad in their marriage, in young life, Judy told Ken he had to decide between their family and his friends.

This week program is a time to visit with Craig and Louise Johnson and look back on how this couple made a pact when they got married to never talk about Jesus Christ. Because of outdoor ministry, however, Craig was exposed to a number of Christians and eventually had Gerry’s book Hunting Blunders and The One That Got Away! dropped into his lap, so to speak. Coming to receive Christ created quite a tense situation in their home, but with time not only did Louise come to Christ, but a number of others as well and Craig today is in full-time ministry sharing the Gospel in many formats.

This program is a visit to Dale Karch at Three Rivers Archery who is the co-owner along with his wife. Gerry visits Dale on location in Indiana and the two talk about how this business became this couple’s ownership and how it’s become a family business. Dale reflects on the family’s time involved with traditional archery from the beginning and how many of the projects such as bow building and flint arrowhead making was done there at home, helping to build a bond that will last for eternity.

The Maranatha Bible Camp in Maxwell, Nebraska and their sporting clays shooting range is the subject of this week’s program.  Gerry visits with Dean Ostrander and discusses his early years living in the area and driving to school each day with rifle and shot gun hanging in the pick-up’s rack so that they could shoot after class was over. Dean talks about how he was only given so much ammo and had to make it last the entire season which made him into quite a shot. He then he relates how over the years the sporting clay range at Maranatha was developed and added to each year. This facility is used to build relationships with outdoorsmen who love to shoot but don’t know the Creator God.
