So this is it! Day fourteen of our two-week Easter Shocase Broadcast.

 

We hope you've enjoyed our unique variety of music as much as we've enjoyed playing it.

 

We hope you've been as impressed by our guests as we've been - some amazing and truly inspiring people, thank you to you all.

 

We hope you feel like you've made some new friends in Scott, Annie, Steve, James, Ashley, Joanna and Ronnie - they're a great bunch of characters!

 

Throughout our last day on-air we'll be playing only the best Christian music from 7am, UK time. We'll be listening back to some of our fasicinating studio guests from the last two weeks and James will be in the studio from 7pm to 8pm to close it all down - for now!

Saturday 11th April 2015

From 8am to midday, there's another chance to hear James speak to David Post about his time at St. George's Church in Baghdad and with Canon Andrew White of FRRME - the Foundation for Relief and Reconcilliation in the Middle East. After hearing David's insights and experiences, if you would like to make a donation to the FRRME, please click here to visit their website directly. (This conversation is also available on the On Demand page - in four parts.)

 

Ronne Barbour brings us Off the Bench at 2pm - our Saturday Sports Show on the Lighthouse NetCast. This week he's talking to a number of experts about the Psychology of SportCan a quick prayer before the match seal victory? Is God really going to help you beat your personal best? Does the power of the mind overrule the power of the body? If you're a competitive sportsperson, you'll find this show useful - just don't tell your competitor!

 

This afternoon at 3pm, it's Steve's last show for our Easter Showcase Broadcast. Just after 4.30pm, he's joined by Karen Mansfield who attends St. Cecilia's Church in Kidderminster, where Steve also worships. Karen turned her hand to poetry during a difficult time in her life and penned The Storm - perhaps you will relate?

 

Scott brings us his final Evening Show from Barbados at 6pm (1pm for him!), then James breaks our the heavy stuff for the Saturday Rock Show from 8pm to midnight with Christian rockers POD, Thousand Foot Krutch, Reliant K, Creed, DC Talk, Red, Skillet, Switchfoot and many more!

Friday 10th April 2015

At midday, James speaks to David Post about his time at St. George's Church in Baghdad and with Canon Andrew White of FRRME - the Foundation for Relief and Reconcilliation in the Middle East. Today, their final chat for the time-being, they talk about David’s experiences of travelling to and from Baghdad, no easy task as you would imagine! There's also the opportunity to hear some of Andrew White’s words as he describes the pain and suffering of his people in Iraq, but also their immense faith.

 

Did you correctly work out yesterday's 24 Hour Tease? What is the link between the words ABSTEMIOUS and FACETIOUS? Top marks if you worked out that they are the only words in the Oxford English Dictionary that contain all five vowels in the correct order! (No new question today as this is the final 24 Hour Tease for now - thanks for playing.)

 

We all love our Christian Anthems on the Lighthouse NetCast but every one of the artists you hear had to start somewhere. At 11am, James talks to Marc Dunn, singer/songwiter from the Lighthouse NetCast's home town of Devizes in Wiltshire, UK. Marc has recently recorded his EP "Returning", which features the three songs "Pioneers", "Waiting" and "Dreams". We'll check out the songs on the show too!

 

There's one final chance to listen to Grace Winnitt chatting to Steve this afternoon about her debut album "Deliver Me". Grace is clearly an up-and-coming Christian artist with a God-given gift and talent for writing and singing her own songs. Remember where you heard her first!

At midday, James speaks further to David Post about his time at St. George's Church in Baghdad and with Canon Andrew White of FRRME - the Foundation for Relief and Reconcilliation in the Middle East. Today they talk about  Canon Andrew White himself and the tireless work he does, despite suffering from MS. They also focus on the work St. George's does for physically and mentally disadvantaged children and the huge difference this makes to their lives.

 

Did you correctly work out yesterday's 24 Hour Tease? A man celebrates his 40th birthday in 2006. In 2010, he's just 36 years old. How come? He was 36 in 2010 BC, so 40 years old in 2006 BC

Thursday's brand new question: What is the link between the words ABSTEMIOUS and FACETIOUS? Get your answer to the studio via the Facebook page - just comment under the question with your answer.

 

James talks to Elysia Commons founder Sebastian Parsons at 11am. 

Imagine working for a company that puts its employees, or it’s “co-workers” at the top of the list of priorities; a company that shares its profits with the co-workers rather than just the directors and the shareholders; a company that invests into the local community as a matter of policy a company that recognises that to function properly, it must ensure those that work for and with the company must have the space they need to develop and fulfil their potential and aspirations and actively encourages that. You NEED to hear about this! And get your boss to listen too!! www.elysiacommons.org

 

Just after 4pm, new Christian musician Grace Winnitt joins Steve again to talk more about her new album and listen to a couple of tracks from it too.

Wednesday 8th April 2015

At midday, James speaks further to David Post about his time at St. George's Church in Baghdad and with Canon Andrew White of FRRME - the Foundation for Relief and Reconcilliation in the Middle East. Today they talk about the clinic set up by St. George’s to offer medical help to anyone in Baghdad who needs it, they also talk more about the talks David gives in churches when he’s on his cycling tours to promote the work they do and also more about Andrew’s multi-faith team at the church. 

 

Did you correctly work out yesterday's 24 Hour Tease? A snail crawls slowly up a garden wall 48cm high. If he crawls 8cm upwards each day and slips back 3cm each night, how long will it take to reach to top of the wall? It took him exactly 9 days. 8 - 3cm per day but he won't slip back down when he gets to 48cm (on day 9) because that's the top of the wall. Well done!

Round two of Minister's Question Time with Sheep Street Baptist's Paul White is at 11am. Clare wants to know what Paul would say to someone who feels that God had no time for them following a time of great trauma in their lives.

 

Just after 4pm, new Christian musician Grace Winnitt joins Steve again to talk more about her new album and listen to a couple of tracks from it too.

Tuesday 7th April 2015

Back in January, James drove 400 miles round trip for the opportunity to spend an afternoon with David Post, also known as the Cycling Vicar! They met when David gave a talk at James’ church about his experience in Baghdad while spending a week with Canon Andrew White at St. George’s Church, a Christian church right in the heart of the capital city of Iraq. David now spends much of his time supporting the work of FRRME - the Foundation for Relief and Reconcilliation in the Middle East – an organisation that is responsible for an immense amount and variety of help and support delivered to the people of Iraq and beyond. But doing this good work doesn’t come without cost. David talks about life in Baghdad and how St. George’s Church serves the people of Iraq. Listen in each day this week (Tuesday to Friday) at midday, UK time.

If it takes her 2 seconds to measure and cut each strip, how many seconds will it take her to produce her 50 one meter strips? Vicky explained the answer on Facebook (giving it away for everyone else!) 100 seconds minus 2 as the last one wouldn't need cutting so 98?? Who needs 24 hours pah!

Saturday 4th April 2015

Yesterday, as part of Good Friday rememberance, a group of people in Lighthouse NetCast's hometown of Devizes, UK, met in the centre of town to recreate the scene of almost two thousand years ago, carrying three full-size wooden crosses up to the top of Roundway Hill. The crosses can be seen from miles around and will remain in place until tomorrow, the day of our Saviour's Resurrection!

Friday 3rd April 2015

Good Friday - strange name for the day that we remember the crucifiction of Jesus Christ. We know it felt anything other than good for the followers of Jesus. There are numerous different accounts of how and why this day became known as Good Friday but we seem to be left to come to our own conclusions. Personally, I think of it as the day we all became good in the sight of God, thanks to the enourmous sacrifice of His Son and the price He paid to cleanse us of our sin. It's a priceless gift given for all of us. All we have to do is willingly accept the most precious gift we'll ever receive. And remember, it may be Friday, but Sunday is coming! Every blessing this Easter - James.
