Dr. Andrew Farley, author of The Grace Message--Is The Gospel Really This Good?
Dr. Andrew Farley, author of the new book The Grace Message--Is The Gospel Really This Good? (released March 8 on Salem Books), joins the program today. Packed with Scripture, and with stories interspersed throughout, The Grace Message covers many aspects of God's grace--not just about "forgiveness when [you] fail and Heaven when [you] die." He adds that many in churches "don't see the empowerment of God's grace, so they seek to lessen it, temper it, or balance it with something else. They kill their victory over sin and don't even realize it. In reality, there is no deeper message than the Gospel of grace." Farley writes about the Old Covenant v the New Covenant, including "The New Covenant is not about you and your dedication, your commitment, or your faithfulness. It's actually about God's faithfulness to Himself. That's what secures you." Farley shares insights about faith, the Law, the Ten Commandments, and what it looks like to live under His grace (as well as challenges a person may face embracing His grace). Dr. Farley is a bestselling author of nine books and is the president of The Grace Message, a non-profit Christian media ministry. He hosts "The Grace Message with Dr. Andrew Farley" weeknights at 8pm on SiriusXM & other platforms. More information is available at www.thegracemessage.org.

WFIL 100th Anniversary Show (Tony Bruno, Howard Eskin, Mark Daniels)
100 years ago today--March 18, 1922--WFIL (originally WFI, under a license issued to Strawbridge & Clothier) broadcast for the very first time. In 1935, WFI merged with WLIT (originally licensed to the Lit Brothers) to form WFIL. Over the years, the station has had various owners, geographic locations, and formats. Well-known for its "Top 40 Rock & Roll" format and its "Boss Jocks" in the 60s & 70s, WFIL later flipped to adult contemporary, country, and "beautiful" music before most recently changing to a Christian teaching/talk format late in 1993. To help commemorate the 100th anniversary, the program features WFIL alumni Tony Bruno, Howard Eskin and Mark Daniels, each very accomplished broadcasters in their own right representing over 125 years of media experience. They share great memories and insights, often referencing the impact of many talented people associated with WFIL's decorated history. We have some fun too mixing in vintage WFIL jingles along the way and gave out $5.60 gift cards to Chick Fil-A, Dunkin, Panera, Rita's & WaWa courtesy of show sponsor Bryner Chevrolet in Jenkintown.

Rob Maaddi (AP Pro Football writer) & Andrew Levitas (Minamata director)
Rob Maaddi, Associated Press Pro Football writer checks in regarding being on the receiving end of nasty & unpleasant messages on social media (most recently revolving around comments made by former Eagles & Colts quarterback Carson Wentz shared about being traded that Maaddi simply reposted). Maaddi, who is also host of the "Faith on the Field" radio show (www.faithonthefieldshow.com) emphasizes the need to love your enemy (and at times, use the "block" button on social media :)). We're also joined by Andrew Levitas, director of the new film "Minamata." From the press release: "Inspired by a true story, Minamata stars Johnny Depp playing celebrated photojournalist Eugene Smith. The film takes place in 1971 when we find Smith as a recluse and disconnected from the world he once shot. After receiving one final assignment from Life Magazine editor Robert Hayes (Bill Nighy), Eugene must travel to the Japanese coastal city of Minamata, which has been ravaged by mercury poisoning. Ushered by an impassioned Japanese translator, Aileen (Minami) and encouraged by local villagers (Hiroyuki Sanada), Eugene's powerful images expose decades of gross negligence by the country's Chisso Corporation." Smith is a heavy drinker, smoker, swearer, and broke...and is not a particularly good father. Yet there are flashes of compassion (grizzled as it might be) in his character as Smith perseveres in documenting the story. "Minamata" is edgy in its language at times, with a storyline that's sad, emotional, powerful, and redemptive (at least in part). One key scene revolves around one of the most famous photos in the past 60 years, "Tomoko In Her Bath" (it is also known by several other names). See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

She received a lifetime Grammy Award in 2018 and continues to be involved in music, most recently on the single "Power In The Name" by her son Damon Elliott & Krayzie Bone (of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony) where Warwick adds guest vocals.

Michael Geer (PA Family Institute) & Kevin Harvey (76ers chaplain & South Jersey FCA)
Michael Geer, president of the Pennsylvania Family Institute, calls in to the show to discuss Senate Bill 956 (The Life Amendment). The bill is in response to a lawsuit (which is currently before the PA Supreme Court) by Planned Parenthood & the abortion industry. The lawsuit demands taxpayer funding of abortion and "further asks the court to declare a right to abortion in our state constitution." PA State Senator Judy Ward (R-Blair), who introduced the bill, noted "I am proposing a simple amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution clarifying that there is no right to an abortion or abortion funding within Pennsylvania's constitution. This amendment is designed to maintain our laws regulating abortion and preventing the taxpayer funding of elective abortion." More information on this and other cases is available at www.pafamily.org. Kevin Harvey, Philadelphia 76ers chaplain and South Jersey Fellowship of Christian Athletes Area Director, also checks in. As a freshman at LaSalle University, Harvey sustained an ankle injury that derailed his basketball aspirations.
