    Presbyterian Church USA Changes Definition Of Marriage

    in Moms and Family

    As the Suprem Court showdown draws closer their will be every effort by the LBGT to presure institutions to publicly endorse Same Sex Marriage. The Presbyterian USA denomination certainly will cause a serious rift among its present membership. there will be many that will denounce the decision and abandon the denomination due to its decision. The Urban Prophets view has not changed, this certainly endangers the lives of children who will be inadated with confusing messages and remember sexuality is greatly influenced by orientation.

    The Sad Mistake Of The Presbyterian Church

    in Politics Conservative

    Today's topic means quite a bit to me as a Christian.  Hopefully it will mean quite a bit at least to the Christians who catch the show.  On Thursday, the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. voted to allow ministers to perform same sex marriages. While that would be bad enough on its own, they even "one-upped" that decision.  Not only are PCUSA ministers allowed to perform gay marriages, but marriage has indeed been redefined in the church's constitution.  Society going down the road of sin and perversion is one thing.  The church or a church doing it is something completely different.  Today I'll be talking about that and maybe some of the larger and more recent aspects and developments of the gay marriage issue internationally, nationally, and within and how it applies to the body of believers.  That's today at 4:30 Eastern, and archived after that.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1121

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Kathy Jones from Sacramento, California a child abuse survivor who was in the foster care system who's author of the book, “Foster Cat, Foster Kid, God Says You Don't Have to Eat Dirt Anymore!" Her dedication to God, love for those that have been impacted by foster care and her passion for animals shines through in her writings and her daily life. Some examples of her altruism include writing a piece as a teenager in 1972, "For God So Loved the World,” which after being published in 1994 has been played “royaltyfree” all over the world, to spread God’s Word. She's mentoring current and former foster youth, researching resources that provide support to the foster youth community and actively participates in petitions supporting important social causes. Kathy's a legislative advocate for animals and wildlife. She's also a member of Fair Oaks Presbyterian Church in Fair Oaks, California. As Kathy began writing “Foster Cat, Foster Kid” her original intention was to feature a special cat, named “Good Boy.” However, as she wrote more, she felt a close connection between her neglectful childhood and the plight of “Good Boy,” who had been left in an abandoned lumber yard. Both she and the cat had been neglected by those that were supposed to nurture them, yet they had a strength that could overcome obstacles that most could not. The book is a heartwarming expression of God’s mercy, the therapeutic love of animals, and the strength that exists in young adults that have had to overcome numerous obstacles that were placed in front of them by foster care.

    The Mother of Father's Day, Sonora Dodd

    in Entertainment

    Rez and Andy welcome Jerry Numbers to the show, a leader who is instrumental in carrying on the legacy of Sonora Smart Dodd, founder of Father's Day.


    In 1909 when Sonora heard a Mother’s Day sermon at Central United Methodist Church in Spokane, she was inspired to propose that Father’s receive equal recognition. The following year with the assistance of Reverend Dr. Conrad Bluhm, her pastor at Old Centenary Presbyterian Church (now Knox Presbyterian Church), Sonora took the idea to the Spokane YMCA. The Spokane YMCA, along with the Ministerial Alliance, endorsed Dodd’s idea and helped it spread by celebrating the first Father’s Day in 1910. Sonora suggested her father’s birthday, June 5th, be established as the day to honor all Father’s. However, the pastors wanted more time to prepare, so June 19, 1910 was designated as the first Father’s Day and sermons honoring Father’s were presented throughout the city. It was years, however, before Father’s Day gained national prominence. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge recognized Father’s Day and urged the states to do likewise. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed a proclamation calling for the third Sunday in June to be recognized as Father’s Day and requested that flags to be flown that day on all government buildings. President Richard M. Nixon signed a proclamation in 1972, permanently observing Father’s Day on the third Sunday in June.


    Today Father’s Day is celebrated from Antigua to Zimbabwe in over 50 countries around the world.  


    Jerry Numbers owns Sonora's former home which is on the National Historic Registry.  You can tour the home on Father's Day or by scheduling a tour.
