One More Thing

The last section of our new antenna has been hung at the top of our new 350-foot tower. Warning lights have been hung and are flashing merrily away. Transmission cabling has been hung, switches put in place and made ready for the transition to our new system. One more piece of antenna equipment is on it's way from Pennsylvania. A site survey has been done to verify to the Federal Communication Commission that we installed our antenna in the proper way and at the proper orientation. We have begun filling out the paperwork to notify the FCC and FAA we have constructed the tower and antenna per their instructions and qualifications.

Then we wait for a few days for authorization to use the new system.

While we’re waiting, I want to encourage you to listen to the station more and perhaps a little more critically. We will make a lot of noise when we switch to the new antenna system. I would love to hear from you about how the new system sounds after we make the switch. Can you hear it further when you are driving into the metroplex for work and fun? Can you hear it in places you have never heard it before? Does it sound better where you live? And though I hope it doesn’t, does it sound worse where you are?

I’m excited about the new lives that will be touched for the Kingdom by this new antenna and tower. Thank you for your prayers and support. Like everything here, none of its possible without God’s spirit working through each of us to make it possible.

The One Thing

My pout has turned to a tentative smile now, because just one thing remains. The soil coring reports came back fine and with no surprises. The final construction drawings have been prepared, stamped and delivered to the city for a building permit. Now we wait just a few more days, we hope, for construction to begin on our new tower.

In the meantime, we’ve arranged for someone to do the dirt and backhoe work. The guy-wire anchors are fabricated. The tower is down and in transit. The top tower mast is designed and in fabrication and the antenna is nearly completed. All of the moving parts seem to be coming together, and yet there is just one more thing.

Also, school has started, our student workers are back and I’m in the classroom again. Oh yeah, Sharathon is in four weeks. My life gets pretty silly some days.

But thinking about the one thing that remains for the tower, makes me think about other one things in my life, including the most important thing. God the Son reminds us about the most important one thing, “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” And He added another just like it, just as important, “love your neighbor as yourself.” Everything else flows from those two.

Makes me think about all the things I think are important. Only to be reminded God thinks only one thing is important, that we love Him with everything, which is best evidenced in how we love each other. How have I shown my love for Him today?
