Thank You Dear Brother….

I have experienced another change of season, if you will, in my life. One chapter ends, another begins. After 15 years and over 1500 broadcasts, we recently recorded the final episode of On Call with Dr. Edney.

These things are so bittersweet. Bitter that a relationship that I have had with this good man, Dr. Dan Edney, is changing. Sweet in that God will be opening other doors of service. The practical reasons the show is ending is that the demand of our personal and work schedules is making it a greater challenge to have the time to record the weekly broadcast. Dr. Edneys always active medical practice, family obligations and ministry work take a great of time. The work load for my day job will soon be greatly increasing and I also hope to revive my old radio program as a weekly podcast. So we saw this as a time to move on.

But I wanted to stop and share a few thought s about this man, Dr Edney, or Danny as I call him. He has been more than just a friend and a coworker. He is and has been a brother. We have been through so much together; some good, some bad. He has always been there for me through thick and thin either with some sort of tangible support or many times, with just a kind word or two of encouragement.

What most people don’t know is that when the radio station faltered and eventually closed, I owed a significant debt on it. Without hesitation, Danny said that we would take moneys from the profit of the On Call program to pay towards the debt of the radio station. It took a few years, but we eventually paid it off and I am eternally grateful for his generosity.

But hasn’t been just business. There have been many time when he helped me out of jams and problems and he did so as a gracious friend and brother, always with love kindness. I have one younger brother and I love him dearly, but Danny Edney has been a brother to me as well. I will miss our times together in the studio and away; our exchanges in conversation, both heated and calm. But I always know that he is just a call of text away and that I can reach out to him at any time.

Thank you brother for all you have done. Thank you for being my brother.

Sin Sick…..

In our offering of On Call with Dr. Dan Edney this week…….

In 2 Corinthians 12:9 the Apostle Paul writes, ”And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” Is there, or can there be, physical consequences to a person’s sin? Dr. Dan welcomes Rev. Kevin Hurt, Minister of Missions and Discipleship, First Baptist Church Vicksburg, MS to the program, as they discuss the ulitmate reason for sickness and suffering and what should the reaction be of Christians toward illness?

Welcome to the World, Trig Paxson Van Palin

On the On Call with Dr. Dan Edney program recently, Dr. Dan and I discussed the courageous and faithful commitment of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her husband Todd, who after learning that their baby would be born with Down Syndrome, never considered aborting the child.

In this article Dr. Albert Mohler offers some wonderful perspective as he writes,

 “Trig Paxson Van Palin has an extra chromosome, two proud and loving parents, four very happy siblings, and he will bring his own joy to untold numbers of lives.

He will face some unique challenges, but he has a loving family who will face those with him. They will learn together the wonder and beauty of a Down syndrome child and will learn to see the glory of God in his trusting face.

Mothers Day 2008 is certain to be a special day in the Alaska Governor’s Mansion. What an unspeakable tragedy that so many other homes will have aborted that joy.

Welcome to the world, Trig Paxson Van Palin. Your very existence defies the Culture of Death and gives us all hope.”
