Radio, April 8: Despite the headlines

Join us on radio every Sunday, 5-8pm on 710 KNUS, Denver To listen online from anywhere, click ------------------------------------------------------------------------- The headlines are not usually the last word, nor is history the news cycle. Mankind's journey is something subtler and grander -- a chain of choices and a mighty drama resulting from those. In the Roman execution of a certain Galilean troublemaker, for example, first impressions were wrong again and again, as my latest commentary points out.

So we at Backbone Radio not only cover the headlines. We look behind them, and we often cut contrary to them. All in the cause of equipping you for better citizenship. This Sunday, for Easter and Passover, part of our conversation will track the news cycle, but much of it will explore deeper trends and timeless truths.

** Matt, Joshua, and I will talk at length with Dr. Douglas Groothuis of Denver Seminary about the role of biblical faith in these militantly secular times.

** And lest the "other half" be forgotten amidst contemporary affluence, we'll have a special hour with Rev. Leon Kelly, famed for his work with Denver's inner-city gangs.

** Meanwhile on the political side, Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave (R-Colorado) checks in with a report on life under the majority Democrats and Speaker Pelosi -- "Damascus Nancy" as some are now calling her.

** And Tom Schatz of Citizens Against Government Waste unmasks the shameless pork used by Pelosi to jam through the anti-Iraq military spending bill.

Spin the dial, surf the net, troll through the weekdays -- you just won't find anything else like Backbone Radio. Please be part of our show this weekend by tuning in at 5pm Sunday.

Yours for self-government, JOHN ANDREWS
