Chic-Fil-A and the Salvation Army

I don't do The Drift radio show anymore since I wised up and shut the paper down.
I had advertisers who regretted that (as well as many readers) because they saw customers through their advertising with us.
But I could not convince enough businesses that advertising to their market through the community newspaper would be more beneficial than an internet presence.
So my experiment in marketing failed.
The paper paid for the air time through a trade I made with the radio station.

However, Pastor Rick Deitering, who I had on the show numerous times, asked me to sit in on his show, Moment of Clarity, for some time before The Drift went off air.
Then he made me a co-host.

Today, he took a day off and I hosted for him, which I hadn't done in a few months.
It was fun.
We talked about Chick-Fil-A cutting ties with the Salvation Army, and why.
You can listen here: A Moment of Clarity
That's me on the left.

  2. "When one door closes, another opens" comes to mind. More importantly, "I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name." (Rev. 3:8)

    1. I know that's generally prophetic, but it had a personal prophetic tone to it.
