ARTIST OF THE DAY
The City Harmonic

The City Harmonic is a Juno and Covenant Award winning worship band originally birthed out of an inter-denominational worship & mission movement in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The City Harmonic formed in 2009 as four worship leaders from four small churches that went from anonymity to widespread acclaim in a blink, headlining tours across North America and gathering numerous awards along the way.

The heartfelt worship songs on the band's latest album HEART was fueled by bassist Eric Fusilier's battle with cancer - a battle he has won!

Acclaim: TCH picked up awards for Group of the Year & P&W Song of the Year at the GMA Canada Awards this Winter!

#TIX4LIFE: The band is offering twelve fans a pair of LIFETIME tickets - good for any City Harmonic Concert in any city ... for life! CLICK HERE for details.

MidDay Joy

If you haven't, be sure to read this month's Manna Magazine. The theme for January is "Promises." As I mentioned on the air today, Josh (your Joy Ride host) wrote an excellent article about the promise that's made at a wedding...but not between the bride and groom. Here's an excerpt for you.

Promise Ring

by Josh Millwood

Weddings have become a spectator sport. We go. We watch. We eat cake, dance and try to photobomb every picture. The end. Billions of dollars are spent in America putting on spectacular shows, with elegant or over-the-top themes (maybe even a Sylvester Stallone classic Over The Top theme). There are reality series about weddings.  There are endless movies about brides running away or grooms learning to dance. Marriage is the new professional sporting event. But it used to be a covenant.

You are required by law to have a witness when you get married. Even at the Justice of the Peace. Even in Vegas. Why? Because this promise matters. Western civilization is built on the back of the stability of family. The definition of family has changed many times. The most recent has been a swing away from the nuclear family (Dad + Mom = Children) to anything goes, whose math doesn’t quite add up. Bear in mind, families used to place a higher importance on grandparents, cousins, creepy uncles and, the further back you go, multiple wives and concubines. But in all forms, the family quite simply means stability.

Every wedding ceremony should have a bit in the middle, somewhere after the introduction and prayer—but before the unity candle—where the bride and groom can address the attendees.  I imagine this address to go like this:

Groom: Thank you all for coming, even the ones of you who think [Bride] is crazy for marrying me. It means a lot.

Bride: I’m not crazy. I’m not pregnant. I truly love him. I promise.

Groom: Speaking of promises, we aren’t the only ones making them today.  You see, we invited you here not just to witness this awesome union [Bride/Groom High Five], but to make us a promise…

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
