This Just In!

radioPeople of a certain age remember where they were when they first heard that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

David Lodge was in a theater watching a comical play. In one scene, a character was demonstrating his nonchalance by listening to the radio. The actor always listened to a live broadcast. Suddenly, the announcement came that President Kennedy had been shot. The actor switched off the radio, but it was too late. Everyone in the theater heard the news. Reality had interrupted the stage comedy.

For many people, worship, prayer, communion and Scripture are little more than a nonchalant charade. They don’t really expect anything significant to happen, but suddenly God breaks through, and they are shocked.

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”—Psalm 46:10.
