Praise Thursday – 8/27

Today was an extra special Praise Thursday, as we are celebrating the arrival of the new freshman class on the campus of MVNU!

It was also my first show back in what feels like forever, but was really only a little over a week, due to vacation and prepping for the new students to arrive on campus.

Joe shared a lot from Psalm 139, which you can find over here.

We told you about some upcoming On The Road With Big Blue events, and you can find our full calendar by clicking here.

Our Word of The Day was recusant, a noun meaning one who refuses to accept or obey authority. You can read more on that here.

Have a great end to your week!


Who knew? Eat this, not that! 8/26/15

Today’s Word of the Day is REDUX (pronounced like ree-DUCKS). It is an adjective meaning something brought back or revived.

Remembering leaders in Knox County (GTT 8/18 show)

STUMPER for Song Poetry/Game Time Tuesday today…do you know these lyrics?

Will you show me?
Reveal yourself to me
Because of your mercy
I fall down on my knees…

It’s coming back next week.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs. Edith Foster this past Sunday and talked a little bit about this on the show today.  Edith and her late husband, Dale, were incredible people and supporters of many community efforts, including helping bring MVNU to Knox County in 1968.  The Foster Award for MVNU senior student-athletes still bears their name, as does the new Foster Hall in Ariel Arena.

Over the last week, Knox County has lost some very servant-minded people who cared about this community and were invested in it.  Mr. Jim Imel, former principal at Mount Vernon Middle School and longtime scorekeeper for MVHS and Kenyon athletics, Shirley Fletcher, former Knox County Commissioner and Interchurch supporter, and Mrs. Foster.  Marcy and I are thankful for the chance to, even if only for a little while, meet and rub shoulders with these fine people.  They’ve left a legacy for those of us who love this community to follow.

Word of the Day – IMPREGNABLE…an adjective describing something unable to be captured or broken into, unable to be defeated or destroyed.

Thanks for listening!


Back to School Mystery Monday

Today was Mystery Monday on the Afternoon Drive and we had a back to school themed Mystery Monday question.

A recent study, which you can find over here, listed the top 3 topics that kids talk to their parents about before going back to school. We told you that bullying was one topic and asked you to name the other two.

We recapped the Dan Emmett Music & Arts Festival and our awesome photo booth we had there yesterday. You can check out all the pictures from the photo booth and the rest of the festival here.

Our Word of the Day was infinitesimal, an adjective meaning extremely small. You can read more on that here.

Have an awesome week!
