This is a letter to our friends –


Many are surprised to discover that Glenn Beck (He used to be on Fox News) is still on the air and on TV. As a matter of fact, Beck invested the fortune he built up on Fox, in his very own Radio and TV network, “The Blaze”. He has managed to remain debt free and is thus free to say and do anything he pleases. Dish network customers will find “The Blaze” on channel #212.

A list of the astounding accomplishments of his endeavors is long and very impressive. That is not what I’m writing about. Glenn Beck says that he is a dedicated Mormon. Evangelical Christendom has some serious problems with the Mormon faith. That is not what I am writing about. On frequent occasions he and his New York associates slip into humor that is offensive to the culture outside the north-east. That is not what am writing about.

I am writing about a TV giant who has put his life and fortune into his very best efforts to follow God’s leading in his life. He is thus under continual attack. I see those attacks as badges of honor!

I have followed Beck for a few years now. I find him to be real and dedicated. Like the rest of us, he sees America’s economy on the verge of collapse, One of his TV documentaries demonstrated that the gold in Fort Knox has been “sold” multiple times and is very likely no longer there! Because he is free of external authority, his news coverage is far deeper than you will find on Fox News

I am writing about a source of information and inspiration so greatly needed by every American today. The inspiration that God has each of us here for a purpose. The encouragement that there is a task, greater than ourselves, for every one of us! We /You/ I am not helpless, being swept along toward chaos. One man can make a difference. Are you that man? We are Americans!

Please accept my invitation to invest $100/year. I believe the first month is a free trial period. That investment opens The Blaze.com TV network to you on your computer.

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. I am in His flock.I will have everything I need.

He makes me lie down in green pastures beside still waters. There I find peace.

He restores my soul: He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. I am forgiven! I know where to go.

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me. What’s to fear?

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. The rod of correction and the staff of security show I am loved.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. I am a living testimony of God’s provision.

You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. You permit me to serve you. I am embarrassed by your grace.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. Goodness in opportunity and mercy in suffering.

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Wow!

[My understanding of Psalm 23]
