Front Porch Sittin’ and Storytellin’
Written by Alice Knighten
I love to spend time sitting on my front porch. I know that doesn’t sound especially adventurous or exciting to most people, but it is many times a great adventure for me.
I grew up with grandparents who would say, “Let’s go sit on the porch and solve the world’s problems.” Now, how in the world did they solve those problems? We would share stories of the past, the present and future. As stories would unfold, I could also see the picture unfold before me. This front porch time we shared together always generated for me excitement, exuberant love for my grandparents and a bright future full of hope.
As I sat on my porch this past week I thought of the stories I have the privilege of hearing daily through The Light. Stories of God’s work in the lives of people in the past, present, and future. I thought to myself, “I can sit on my porch and solve the world’s problems by deciding to take the step to share the hope of Jesus with everyone I meet.” It is exciting to me to know that you and I, together with The Lord, have the privilege of impacting lives through this radio ministry.

Maybe you would like to “help solve the world’s problems”, so to speak, by impacting a life today. You can read and hear stories now at thelightfm.org. Then, I challenge you to do some front porch sittin’ and tell your story to someone. Thank you for impacting lives with the hope of Jesus.
