Effective Wednesday, March 25, 2020, The Paul Edwards Program will no longer air on WMUZ-AM 1200 in Detroit.
For nearly a year, Paul has produced and hosted this program without compensation with the understanding that the program would eventually be supported by advertisers secured by account executives at WMUZ.
Over the course of an entire year, WMUZ has failed to secure ANY advertisers necessary to make The Paul Edwards Program financially viable and to compensate the host, while at the same time enhancing their FM programming with a new talk show and new host in their 4pm-7pm drive-time slot.
Keith and Kristyn Getty occupy a unique space in the world of music today as preeminent modern hymn writers. In re-inventing the traditional hymn form, they have created a catalogue of songs teaching Christian doctrine and crossing the genres of traditional, classical, folk and contemporary composition which are sung the world over.
According to CCLI, it is estimated that 40 to 50 million people sing “In Christ Alone” in church services each year.
Keith Getty has collaborated with Jordan Kauflin, Matt Merker, Matt Papa and Matt Boswell on a new hymn just in time for Easter (and the anxiety around COVID-19), Christ Our Hope in Life and Death.
For decades now, Americans have believed that their country is deeply divided by “culture wars” waged between religious conservatives and secular liberals. In most instances, Protestant conservatives have been cast as the instigators of such warfare, while religious liberals have been largely ignored. In this book, L. Benjamin Rolsky examines the ways in which American liberalism has helped shape cultural conflict since the 1970s through the story of how television writer and producer Norman Lear galvanized the religious left into action.
The creator of comedies such as All in the Family and Maude, Lear was spurred to found the liberal advocacy group People for the American Way in response to the rise of the religious right. Rolsky offers engaged readings of Lear’s iconic sitcoms and published writings, considering them as an expression of what he calls the spiritual politics of the religious left. He shows how prime-time television became a focus of political dispute and demonstrates how Lear’s emergence as an interfaith activist catalyzed ecumenical Protestants, Catholics, and Jews who were determined to push back against conservatism’s ascent. Rolsky concludes that Lear’s political involvement exemplified religious liberals’ commitment to engaging politics on explicitly moral grounds in defense of what they saw as the public interest. An interdisciplinary analysis of the definitive cultural clashes of our fractious times, The Rise and Fall of the Religious Left foregrounds the foundational roles played by popular culture, television, and media in America’s religious history.
The majority of Coronavirus related deaths are persons aged 70 or higher. And many of those persons younger than age 70 who died after contracting Coronavirus had multiple underlying health conditions which also contributed to their deaths.
