Some of these are about to kick off around the Western Slope, and you can find several listed on our Community Calendar.  

From The Manager’s Desk-We Aim to Introduce Them

David AndrewsIn a recent Inside Report, I mentioned how everything feels new around here between the system upgrades, new employees, and new management.  It is actually really exciting! But one thing is definitely not new as we enter into the summer….

Every summer, there are a few more pacing trails worn into the office carpets from what we like to jokingly call “the summer bummer”…where income tends to drop off over our summer months.  And while I am sure you may not be as excited as I am about “another request for support,” these next months of June, July, and August are really still important for us
financially. That is true especially after a weak April and May. 

I have to say, almost daily, in contact with people or when I am driving across town, I am reminded that our towns are really struggling…people are lost in their sin and pain.  Yet, what an awesome opportunity and challenge for us to point to the Way, the Truth, and the Life! What this community really needs is Christ, and His transforming work in their lives.  And we aim to introduce them. 

But we need your help…it might sound boring at first glance, but your continued and consistent financial and prayer support make it possible for the transformative message of Christ to literally go out over the airwaves into our very own community.  Please remember us faithfully this month financially, or perhaps consider supporting us for the first time.  God Bless!  

KurtKurt’s ♫Music Notes♫- Steven Curtis Chapman Remembers His Daughter, Maria

On May 21, 2008, Steven Curtis Chapman’s three young daughters—all adopted from China—were playing at home.  The youngest, Maria, was too short to reach the monkey bars and needed someone to help her.  Just then, Will drove up the driveway.  Maria ran to greet him.  He didn’t see her, and she was fatally struck.  Steven and his wife Mary Beth were both home but were unable to save Maria.
In 2007, Steven had recorded a song called “Cinderella” about cherishing every moment with his daughter:
So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she'll be gone
Shortly after Maria’s death, Steven recorded a new verse:
I’ve walked the valley of death’s shadow
So deep and dark that I could barely breathe
I’ve had to let go of more than I could bear
And I’ve questioned everything that I believe

But still even here in this great darkness
There’s a comfort and a hope that comes breaking through
As I can say even in death or in life, God, we belong to You
We are Yours, God.
In 2015, Chapman told The Tennessean that while he appreciated the outpouring of support, “We still carry the sadness and the grief.  It's a completely unfixable, broken-beyond-repair situation until heaven.  In heaven, and only in heaven, will this make sense."
Now, on the ten-year anniversary, Chapman has released his latest song “Remember To Remember.”  He says it’s important not to forget what God has done in the past as we look to the future:
Well I’ve been looking back over my shoulder
Retracing every step, trying to unforget
Pages and memories filled with joy and stained with tears
They call my name and if I listen I can hear them saying

Remember the way He led you up to the top of the highest mountain
Remember the way He carried you through the deepest dark
Remember His promises for every step on the road ahead
Look where you’ve been and where you’re going
And remember to remember
