Patriot Day (9/11)

“Beyond 9/11: The Impact of Prayer” (28:00)
Carter Conlon
Original Release Date: Patriot Day 2014

In 2001, every eye was focused on Manhattan–and in the midst of the 9/11 tragedy, Times Square Church was at the ready, uniquely prepared to minister in the crisis.  Because they had prayed.  It’s a powerful and deeply moving remembrance of 9/11 … with the strongest of biblical foundations as the platform for impacting our culture then … and now.

Thanksgiving

The Legend of Squanto

A Radio Theatre Classic
Radio Theatre | Focus on the Family
2 hr. special with time for local spot avails

This audio drama brings to light the story of one of America’s early legends: “Squanto.”  History remembers Tisquantum as the Native American who taught early settlers to fish and farm.  He’s even credited with the first Thanksgiving.  But few hear the story of the condemnation that dragged him outside America to a life in chains and what he discovered after his exile.  It’s an inspiring true story of this little-known early American that triumphed over injustice and changed what would become the United States.

Easter

To Be Risen with Christ (24:55)

Carter Conlon 
New for 2022

What does it mean to be risen with Christ?  How does God manifest His glory through my life?  Surprisingly, the answer has to do with a gardener, a traveler, and a cook.  God’s plan is to make Himself known through our lives in a way that only He can … and it will make you shout for joy!

CLASSIC CHRISTMAS SPECIALS

A Christmas Carol

Originally Released 2008
Radio Theatre | Focus on the Family
3-part special for 2-hour block/1 hr. 39 min.

Charles Dickens was just 12 years old when he saw firsthand the devastating effects of child labor.  He never forgot those images.  In 1843 he wrote a pamphlet titled: “An Appeal to the People of England, on Behalf of the Poor Man’s Child.”  It became the story of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.”  Focus on the Family brings to life the story of miserly Scrooge who in one momentous night is confronted by his own lack of compassion—and given the opportunity to change not only his life but others too!  It’s a message that defines the spirit of the season of Christ’s birth, of His loving compassion!
