BLOSSBURG BELL RINGS AFTER 35 YEARS!

The Seventh Day Adventist Church in Blossburg, Pennsylvania had their bell go silent about 35 years ago. Due to mechanical failure and constant repairs the church decided not to fix it. It was no longer a priority.

About a year ago Pastor Humbert arrived. The Lord certainly knew who to send, because Pastor Humbert happens to have a love for church bells and what they represent. When he found out that the church actually had a bell in their tower he began to encourage church members to go forward with the necessary repairs that would allow that bell to ring again.

It is inspiring to know that this Saturday, September 13th – for the first time in nearly 35 years – the church bell at the Seventh Day Adventist Church will ring again. You are invited to join the congregation as they celebrate this inaugural event.

WHERE WERE YOU ON 9/11?

On September 11, 2001 at 8:46 AM – I was wrapping up the morning show in our Nation’s Capital area at Seven Locks Broadcasting when American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. At first I thought that is must have been a small private aircraft that had run into some kind of trouble. A few moments later at 9:03 AM, United Airlines Flight 175 struck the South tower of the World Trade Center and we knew immediately we had a serious problem.
