KFUO Radio, a station owned and operated by The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, recently celebrated its ninetieth anniversary. For ninety years, this station has continuously broadcast the Good News of Jesus Christ. In the early days of the station, it was suggested that its call letters, KFUO, stand for “Keep Forward, Upward, Onward.” This same slogan describes the apostle Paul’s message in today’s Epistle. In the face of division within the church of Corinth, Paul encourages them to “not lose heart.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.  Because of Jesus, our risen Savior, we know that the victory over sin, death, and the devil has been won. Faith in our living Lord gives us the strength to “Keep Forward, Upward, Onward!”

President  of the LWML, Kay Kreklau was interviewed by KFUO Friday.  I just found out about it yesterday. On Friday, June 5, Andy Bates, host of KFUO’s morning program “His Time” visited with President Kreklau about the convention programing and how Christ reaches into the surrounding community through the mission of the LWML. President Kay shared how Christ’s love reaches around the world through LWML Mission Grants.  Since I couldn’t listen live, I found out that the program will be recorded and you may access it at a later time directly through the KFUO website. Once KFUO has recorded and archived this interview, LWML will also offer a link from the LWML website http://www.lwml.org/news.
