Dear Radio Friends,
The Bright Spot Hour is opperating in our 76th year of broadcasting without ever being off the air. It was 76 years ago that my grandfather began the broadcast. By the grace of God, the miracle has been accomplished. I am trusting the Lord for the next 24 years, bringing us to the 100th celebration. I will be 77 years of age at the 100th anneversary celebration, and by the grace of God, I anticipate being alive to celebrate that. Please check the link on this page that will take you to our You Tube channel, where you can find a video of every Bright Spot Hour broadcast.
My revival meetings have been cancelled as have many church services across the land as a result of the Corona Virus. I fear this might become a "new normal" with Governors attempting to suspend assembly (protected by the First Ammendment) and the exercise of religion and speech, (also protected by the First Ammendment.) Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Statist are renowned for using a "crisis" to advance control over the movements of the populace. I am now down-playing the severity of this crisis, but I am pointing ouy an abuse of power by some that will take advantage of this situtation. Of course, the "News Media" is having a field day with this.
As of June first, the Bright Spot Hour will be removed from our local "home" station, WTBI, 91.5 FM, 1540 kHz, am in Pickens. The official candidate season opens June 1st and runs through the election on November 3rd. Since I am running for County Council, Greenville County District 25, I will be off the air in Greenville County. On November 4th, 2020, I trust to be able to resume the 6:05 and 11:05am time slot with the Bright Spot Hour although at this point, I have been unable to receive a definite answer from the radio station. Your prayers and calls to WTBI radio, 864-295-2145, in this matter would be appreciated.
Let me invite you to visit a new website we are building: drbencarper.com. Important informantion will be there for those in the upstate of South Carolina.
The site plans are being drawn for the moving of the Bright Spot Hour building and its attachment to our present Real Estate office. This will be a tremindous blessing for the Bright Spot Hour and the ministry through radio the Lord has allowed us to have for 77 years.
Please pass the link to the site along to all your e-mail contacts and we can increase our listeners, reaching as many people as we can with the gospel of Christ.
Dr. Ben Carper
