PUBLISHER'S NOTE: THE SLOWDOWN EXPLAINED


Dear Readers,

As I'm sure you've noticed, the pace of observations from this corner has slowed.  Considerably.

Part of that had to do with two glorious weeks in NYC, seeing friends, hearing music, and er.... eating.  But the rest of the diversion has to do with my new job.

This week, I started as News Director of KSFR, the public radio station in Santa Fe, NM, a job I am delighted to be sharing with Zelie Pollon, a superb journalist with experience covering stories in depth from New Mexico to Iraq. 

For me, this is a perfect opportunity to teach once again my philosophy and practice of news, to create an old-fashioned workshop of news, which turns out, not only superior radio journalism, but trained newspeople.

KSFR, 101.1 on your FM dial, but more to the point, universally available, livestreaming on the internet at www.ksfr.org  already benefits from a stream of volunteers from the diverse, but highly sophisticated and engaged communities of Santa Fe.  Our next step will be to recruit at every local high school and college wannabe journalists ready to trade time and energy for training and mentoring and a chance truly to "do news" as interns.

The possibilities are inspiring.

Beyond that, I hope soon to begin, probably in April, a once-a-week (at least to start) one-hour interview show focused on news, local and global.

The resulting podcast should be accessible here and at the KSFR website mentioned above.  Once it's ready to launch, I will, of course, let you know through the usual routes, Facebook, Twitter (thank you, Amy) and email.

As I will when I launch future text posts which will, I fear, be fewer and farther between, as I absorb and am absorbed by this new adventure in my first medium: radio.

  1. SEEKING TRUTH

    If seeking God's truth is your goal, what avenue would you take. What would be your source for the truth?

    WOULD IT BE?

    A. Prayer and studying the Scriptures?

    B. Reading the books written by these men Bishop Sheen, Billy Graham, C.S. Lewis, Jimmy Swaggart, John Calvin, Martin Luther, Alexander Campbell, John Wesley, Robert Schuller, Oral Roberts, Rich Warren, Benny Hinn, Max Lucado, Charles H. Spurgen, Paul Washer, John McAthur, Joel Osteen, T. D. Jakes, Joesph Smith Jr., Chuck Swindoll etc.


    C. Read creed books, the Book of Mormon, catechism, statements of faith etc.


    B. and C. Does not contain the infallible word of God. Why would you search for truth there?


    GOD'S WORD IS TRUTH!


    2 Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed,accurately handling the word of truth.


    In order to accurately handle the truth you need to study the source for the truth. THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE IS THE ONLY TRUSTWORTHY SOURCE FOR THE TRUTH.


    THE APOSTLES WORDS WERE TRUTH!


    1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.


    Paul said their word was God's word. Paul the and the rest of the apostles received their words directly from Jesus and the Holy Spirit.


    Is the source of truth for group B. and C. direct revelation from Jesus or the Holy Spirit? Are their words the absolute truth and nothing but the truth? Are their writings equal to Scripture? The answer is NO.


    Why would believers in Christ be willing to put their trust in mere men? That is puzzling at best.


    ALL SCRIPTURE IS INSPIRED BY GOD.(2 Timothy 3:16)


    THE LISTS B. AND C. ARE NOT PRODUCING SCRIPTURE!


    SEEKING TRUTH?----BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU SEEK!
