Fall Sharathon 2016
"There's a Light"
When you encounter the evening news, do you get that sense in the pit of your stomach that the world is getting darker all the time?
When you hear of another mass bombing or a law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty, does your heart sink and wonder, "What's next?"
When you see tensions between those of different race, religion, or political affiliations become more pronounced, do you question if there's any hope?
This really isn't the typical beginning of a letter announcing a Family Life Sharathon, but sadly these are questions that you are probably asking more and more as society becomes darker. But as believers in Jesus Christ, we know that there is hope! For you see, no matter how dark our world becomes, "There's a Light" that shines!
"I just wanted to say that Family Life helps me know I'm not lost, God hears me and He is blessing me with his saving grace. When I don't know where to turn, I turn on the radio and always find a friend there. God bless Family Life and all who make this possible. Thank you."
For six decades, Family Life has sought to shine the light of Christ in numerous ways and in many communities. The Lord has blessed, and continues to bless His ministry at Family Life by allowing it to reach people just like you with hope, encouragement, instruction, and companionship daily. Every six months Family Life chooses a Sharathon theme based upon a song that truly communicates our mission and devotion. With what is currently happening in our world today, we couldn't think of a better theme song than, "There’s a Light" from our good friend Todd Smith of the group, Selah.
Your financial involvement during the Fall Sharathon, October 12-15, will assist the ministry in continuing to spread the light of Jesus through so many collaborative avenues. You see, Family Life is much more than just a radio ministry. Other departments include a full-time Performing Arts Department that trains young people in creative arts as well as staging major theatrical productions; a Biblical Counseling Department that not only provides individual and family counseling, but also oversees nearly 80 "Healing Journey" groups across the two-state region; and an Events Department which schedules and coordinates concerts, conferences, and other activities close enough for you to take advantage of.
You can contribute online or call us at 800.927.9083 during the Fall Sharathon. Thank you in advance for helping Family Life communicate to a dark world, "There's a Light!"
Yours in Christ,
Rick Snavely CEO
P.S. Family Life recognizes that the local church is God's ordained institution, and because of that we would encourage you NOT to give to Family Life what belongs to your local church!
