Spring and summer are wonderful times of the year. Spring ushers in a season of new life and summer brings fresh and renewed opportunities. But spring and summer also have their own dark sides we don’t often consider. According to a 2014 U.S. Department of Justice report, the domestic crime rate increased 11.5% during the heat of the summer months. Specifically, gun violence peaks over the summer in many of our cities and suburbs. And the needs of the homeless and helpless among us are brought to greater light.
Interestingly, since most families and individuals enjoy the great outdoors and travel during the summer, it’s not considered prime time for television. But for the Total Living Network, the summer months are among the most important of our year—because we’re more than just a television channel. We’re a ministry and ministry is at the heart of who we are and what we do. It’s vital that we’re there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with messages that speak to the anger and desperate need that result in violence and hopelessness. Christ’s message of deep love needs to be shared—especially to those in poverty, broken homes, gangs or on the streets with nowhere to turn. When the struggle is the greatest, TLN reaches beyond walls and doors—and into anxious souls that need His life-changing love.
As you begin to enjoy all the activity and travel summer can bring—please remember it’s during these months we need your financial help the most. As you stand with us this month, you’re bringing good, good news to those who need it most, and healing to an angry and hurting world.
