SERIES OVERVIEW: Imagine it’s 50 AD, and you are riding your camel. You’re headed up to Jerusalem from Galilee, and you’ve lost all your favorite Galilean radio stations. It’s a long ride without tunes, and so you flip the dial to see what you can find. Suddenly, a station comes in loud and clear. . . .
“It’s 10 o’clock, and you’re listening to FM 108, ‘all James all the time—all wisdom all the time—all Messiah all the time.’ You might even say, ‘all Sermon on the Mount—all the time.’ And you’re not just listening to some Johnny-come-lately station either. We were the very first. On the air since the mid 40’s. We were there from the beginning to get you to where you want to go. So, sit back and enjoy 108 verses of pure wisdom from the brother who was there from the beginning, then lost his way, but then was found. And if he can make the journey, you can, too. But remember, listening is good. Putting it into practice, better. That’s why we call it, First Mission—put these things into practice first, and you’ll be well on your way. FM 108, the very best of James for you.”
