Thought For Today (part 12)

The Christian radio station that I listen to daily is WIHS 104.9 FM based out of Middletown, CT. To me, those involved with this station are broadcasting the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.

A service that this station has provided for as long as I can remember is giving its listeners the Thought For The Day. During the course of its programming a thoughtful saying or phrase is given to us to consider and meditate for the day. These thoughts are spearheaded by Mr. Gerry Williams (Mrs. Teresa Daily assisting) and repeated several times throughout the day by the other DJs of the radio station.

Below is a collection of some of these thoughts and sayings shared on the air over the last few weeks. If you want to quote any of these thoughts please be sure to give credit to the radio station WIHS 104.9 FM. You may contact Mr. Gerry Williams via email – wihs@snet.net with any questions you may have.

45) The growth of a saint is the work of a lifetime.

Saint

*** Saint Ioannikios (752-846) ***  Homework Questions: Why did many artists paint a Christian person, a saint, with a halo? What is a halo? Do Christians living today have invisible auroras surrounding them? (Hint: The answers are not found in the Bible).
