The reason for us to go all Christmas music is to invite more people to try SPIRIT 105.9. Tuning in to SPIRIT 105.9 for Christmas music may be the very first time for some of the Austin radio listeners to hear the message of the Gospel. If that happens, we think it’d make it worth doing.
We have carefully chosen the very best Christmas music on the planet to provide radio listeners a wonderful soundtrack all day and all night now through Christmas Day.
We humbly ask you to pray for those who may be hearing the Gospel for the first time when they tune in to SPIRIT 105.9
Your favorite SPIRIT music will return right after Christmas.
The SPIRIT 105.9 Team
Below are some answers to questions you may have:
Why do you play all Christmas music from the Day after Thanksgiving (aka ‘Black Friday’) through Christmas Day?
We thoughtfully and prayerfully decided to do this Christmas emphasis as an evangelistic tool. But we need your help. You may have experienced the reality that your friends and family are a little more open to hearing about spiritual things during the Christmas season. Many who would never listen to Christian radio are more open to do so when they’re listening to a station playing all Christmas music.
By simply telling your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, acquaintances to tune-in during this season, could allow the Holy Spirit to work in their hearts drawing them to Christ. Also, by having the radio on in the back ground during get-togethers allows an easy opportunity to share Christ and/or the station.
How, exactly, does SPIRIT 105.9 share the Gospel Message?
Who best to communicate the true and real meaning of Christmas than your favorite Christian artists? They perform original and traditional Christmas songs that proclaim so well the wonderful and glorious news of the advent of our Savior. Add the passion of these artists for the Gospel with the power of the Holy Spirit and one has a potent message that can speak directly to a listener’s heart with unparalleled precision one’s need for Christ.
I hear some songs from artists that I don’t believe are Christian. Why is that?
Needless to say, this is a joyous season of celebration about the birth of Jesus Christ. However, we have added a big dose of holiday spice from the likes of Andy Williams, Burl Ives, Brenda Lee, Nat King Cole, and more. These Christmas classics are designed to invoke memories endearing listeners to the delivery.
After all, what a Grinch we would be if we left out White Christmas by Bing Crosby! However, in this category, we deliberately left out those songs that glorify Santa.
How can we help?
Tell your neighbors, acquaintances and friends to make SPIRIT 105.9 the sound track of their season! During Christmas get-togethers turn the radio on for atmosphere. Tune in at work and/or tell your co-workers.
Don’t forget to mention the wonderful Christmas music on SPIRIT 105.9 at PTA meetings and sports outings. All you need to say is, ‘Hey! There is great Christmas music all the time on SPIRIT 105.9.’ Tell your pastor what we are up to and ask him to encourage the congregation from the pulpit and in the bulletin to spread the word to their acquaintances. On a smaller scale, do the same in your small group and Sunday school class. Be inventive, creative and proactive! Make it viral. The more you tell who will tell others, the more who will listen, the more who will hear the Gospel. (If you come up with a great idea I haven’t mentioned, email us so we can post it here!)
The all Christmas music initiative, as promoted by billboards and other promotions, is the hook to attract those who have no relationship with Christ to try SPIRIT 105.9. The hope is that while they are listening for the Christmas music they would hear and respond to the ever present Gospel message presented along with the Christmas music.
Thanks for praying for us and for helping us fulfill the vision that God has called us to do. If you have any ideas, questions or concerns, please feel free drop us an email at email@example.com
