Courage is just another word for inner strength. Courage is the determination to hang in there, to persevere, endure hardship, fear, and all manner of difficulty. The fact is, it's impossible to live victoriously for Jesus Christ without courage. We cannot honour God in a godless culture without courage. The real test of courage isn't so much for those fighting on the battlefield…or for witnessing in the midst of opposition…or even for facing down a burglar in our homes.

Mon/Wed/Sat 11pm3335 Fred De Frain Classic: (Alcoholism, Failure, Stealing) Fred grew up stealing from his alcoholic father, eventually drinking himself, earning a prison record. He drifts from job to job and place to place, marries and then leaves his wife. He ends up visiting missions everywhere he goes, and God's Word echoes through his head in his travels. He eventually receives Christ as his Savior, pays back what he stole and preaches to groups about how he came to know freedom through Christ.

Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pmAvery leaned forward, peering out the van window. Rain streamed down the glass, blurring the view. The windshield wipers were swishing back and forth at top speed. "Mom, when will it stop raining? The sun hasn't been out in two weeks!" complained Avery.
"I know, honey," said Mom, steering the car carefully through the wet street. "The rain is sure coming down fast. I can hardly see through these windows." She turned in at the grocery store entrance and parked near the door.
Just as Avery got out of the car, a blind man shuffled by. He gripped the harness of a golden retriever who led him through the doorway. As Avery watched the blind man, she bit her lower lip. It made her think about the paralyzed girl in her class who got around in a wheelchair.
"Mom, I've got some questions," said Avery when they returned to the car. "Why does God let some people be blind or handicapped in some other way? And why does He allow all this rain? I'm really sick of it."
Avery's mom nodded. "I've asked those same questions myself," she said. "I can only tell you that such things are due to the fact that there's sin in the world. But God can take even the worst circumstance and turn it around to bring blessing."
Avery sighed. "I don't see how," she said. "I wish I could understand God better."
Mom nodded. "I do, too," she agreed, "but . . ." She pointed to the rain still streaming down the windshield. "See how blurry everything looks through the rain?" she asked, and Avery nodded. "Well, our understanding of God is like looking through this blurry windshield," said Mom as she started the car. "When we get to heaven we'll see things clearly and understand God's greatness--and it's possible we may even know answers to the questions we asked today. For now, we just need to trust that God loves us and has a purpose for all things."
How About You?
Have you wondered why God allows things such as sickness and poverty? If you know Jesus, someday you'll no longer wonder about those things. The Apostle Paul says things are now seen dimly, as in a mirror--and apparently not a very clear mirror. He says things can be known only in part now. But he assures you that some day you'll see Jesus face to face and know things more fully. Until then, trust God's perfect plan and purpose for all things.
Today's Key Verse:
Now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then (in heaven) face to face.
(1 Corinthians 13:12)
Today's Key Thought:
Trust God in all situations

Just days before Christmas, a mysterious illness spreads through the town sapping everyone of their strength and their hopes of winning the big Christmas decorating contest. With only hours before the judges arrive, can The Club find a way to save Christmas or has everyone been making Christmas something it's not?
Paws & Tales
Tue 4pm.Episode Summary:
Have you ever wondered what Mary thought about the very first Christmas? Was she scared? Excited? Happy? Listen to Mary’s Miracle on this week’s Kids Corner.
Imagine that every time you sin, an ugly dark X is marked on your heart. Every time you lie, you are mean to someone, or you say hurtful words, another X is written on your heart. Every time you don’t help, you are selfish, or you think mean thoughts, another X is added. Every day, X X X X X X. You can’t even see your heart because it is covered completely with all the nasty things that you think, say, and do.
God looked at your heart and saw each and every X, each and every sin. God cried. Then God decided to do something radical; he decided to send his very own Son into our world to deal with those Xs..
Jesus’ heart was perfect, clean, and beautiful. He chose to give his heart and his life to destroy all of the Xs that have dirtied your heart. Jesus was born as a baby. Jesus died on a cross. He rose from the dead three days later. Now, when God looks at your heart, he smiles. God takes every single X--every lie, mean word, and unkind action--and flings it far, far away. God looks at your heart again and sees your heart as being as perfect, clean, and beautiful as Jesus himself.
Christmas is more than decorations, presents, and candy. Christmas is the coming of God’s great gift of a clean and pure heart through Christ Jesus. Christmas is hearing the angels’ message: Do not be afraid! I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord! Christmas is singing with the angels, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and joy to all God’s children, whom he loves.” Merry Christmas!
This retelling of the Christmas story is a beautiful way to bring the story alive. Mary and Joseph were real people, with misgivings and doubts as well as faith when they were called to be the earthly parents of God’s son. We hope you and your family will enjoy this and that it will enrich your Christmas celebration.
