We are ONE!

Stand Up For The Truth is celebrating its first anniversary of our maiden voyage last December 6th, 2010.

Did you know that the spark for this show was based on our own lack of awareness of these issues? In 2009, Mike LeMay was asked an important, game-changing question: Are you, as General Manager of Christian radio station Q90FM, going to keep supporting a local music festival that has asked Jim Wallis to be its keynote speaker?

That question inspired an investigation for many Christians in northeast Wisconsin. After all, not many of us even knew who Jim Wallis was, or what he stands for.  Fast forward two years later, and we realize that there are many other things we don’t know about that we need to be talking about. We were inspired to do this show because of all of the issues dividing the Church today. Issues like the Environmental Movement, Word Faith Movement, Chrislam, Contextualization, Dominionism, the Emergent Church, Education, Middle East, Politics and Faith, Universalism, New Age Islam and many, many more.

Of course, we couldn’t do any of this without you, our listeners. We’re reaching ears and hearts of believers well beyond Wisconsin and the United States.   Iron sharpens iron, and we hope that this show inspires you to challenge us to keep learning, keep reporting and keep encouraging all of us to be those Watchmen on the wall.

So thank you for supporting us with your prayers and financially. And thanks for standing with us.

    Happy first birthday! I can't remember exactly how I found your program. I probably followed a link on another website I frequent. I listened and liked what I heard and started to download the program to mp3 and have been listening for about a month now. I was so surprised and excited when I first realized the program comes out of the Green Bay area. I lived there for 7 years back in the late 60's and early 70's. I remember it as being a very Catholic town. At least that is how I would recall it because I was Catholic at the time. I graduated from St. Norbert College and taught school several years at St. Boniface Elementary in DePere before returning home to New York where I was from orginally. Just before I left Green Bay, however, the Lord miraculously saved me!! I was reading a book I purchased at a used book store. One line in the book said, if I were the only person on the earth, Christ would have died just for me. Well, I had never heard that before. I embraced that simple truth, got on my knees, repented of my sin and it completely changed my life. I remember feeling clean, like I had been hosed down on the inside! It was so amazing because I was a very strong Catholic at the time and no one had ever witnessed to me. It was just that one line in that book…and the Holy Spirit, of course Who opened my eyes. I left Catholicism behind when I left Green Bay. That was 37 years ago.

    I have fond memories of Wisconsin and upper Michigan and people I knew there. I am so pleased to see that there is such a strong presence/witness of true discerning believers there now. (Maybe they were always there and I just never happen to encounter them.) I love the show! You do a great job! Thank you so much. Maybe someday I will get back up there again just for a visit. I am sure it has changed a lot in so many years, but I know it must still be a beautiful place.

    God bless you! May you have continued growth and success in this much needed ministry.

    Rose
