Fall 2015 Radiothon Guests

October 30, 2015

Dear WOPG Listeners,

WOPG’s 3 day fall 2015 radiothon was blessed with many guests: Bishops, Priests and lay ministries.  The event’s 25 recordings can be  played at your convenience using the links at the bottom of this post.

Radiothon is on YouTube thanks to John Woods click Here

The 2 WOPG radio stations (1460 AM & 89.9 FM) serve a significant portion of the Albany Diocese bringing WORDS OF PEACE AND GOODNESS.   WOPG needs your financial support to fund its expenses; no one receives a salary, there are many loving and talented volunteers.  DONATIONS LINK

———————————————————

Bishops and Priests

The program discussions  center on the significance of growing into adulthood during the late teen to early 20’s. Goal is to examine how all of us respond to God’s invitations. Typically the experiences and decisions made then have a long lasting effect on each of our futures. Somewhat related to the sons response to their father’s request that they go work in the vineyard, Mathew 21:28.
Then weave into that discussion a couple statements from Jesus: “Peace be with you” and “Be not afraid”. What does Peace mean and why is there the potential for fear.
Then examine if a disciple should be comfortable in their journey on earth or should the disciple expect some tension, explain.
Wrap-up with how can these reflections be used to help each other and especially todays young adults.
