  • Top 10 Country Christian songs

    Posted by Jimmy C

    Here's the top Ten Country Christian songs. Where did your favorite rank?


    Not surprising that Josh has two.

    Here's a quote from Taste of Country. Do you agree?

    "While not every successful country singer releases Christian songs, those who've ignored Christian values haven't gotten very far. Some, like Josh Turner and Randy Travis, are able to weave their faith into the music a little more comfortably than others. Country listeners know when a performance lacks sincerity, and more than a few songs have been written that were swatted away like a mosquito. When done right, nothing sticks to one's soul stronger than a song that inspires.

    It wasn't easy, but we whittled down every country song written about God and Christian values to a list of 10 of our favorites. Our criteria included not only song quality and impact; radio success was also a factor. These 10 Christian songs can all be still heard on country radio stations across America today. Chances are one has caused you tear up. The Top 10 Christian Songs are capable of making us better human beings".

  • The Desert Hawks

    Posted by Jimmy C

    This is the unit of a very good friend of mine from Battle Creek who lives in Tucson now. He graduated in 1978 from St. Phil and Proudly still serves with The United States Air Force. His unit is deploying to Afganistan in January (I know it's a little early) but we need to keep them and their families in our Prayers and it's never too early to start. Thank You Greg Nusbaum for all you do and tell your unit they are Loved in Battle Creek.

    Commander's Quote:
    "The Airman and civilians in this squadron are a highly motivated group that seamlessly wears civilian clothes one day and an Air Force uniform the next. Whether it is maintaining and supporting our helicopters locally, deployed, or in a disaster relief role we proudly reinforce the reputation of having the cleanest, best flying, and most professionally maintained helicopters in the Air Force. Since coming off of active duty it has been an extraordinary re-bluing experience to be a part of such a world-class outfit as the 943d Maintenance Squadron."
