About Evensen’s Internet show

Taking the message nationwide on television

By Greg Evensen

The phrase, “all in God’s timing and in the most effective way possible,” applies to a new nationwide internet television series to be broadcast on the IBC (Internet Broadcast Company) network.  This is a subscription ($35 per year initially) channel similar to that which Glenn Beck is affiliated.

I will host an hour show each week discussing and detailing how folks can better prepare for the unprecedented challenges just ahead of us in America.  We know the civil and governmental disaster that has been created by unrestrained political power.  Most of us have seen the overwhelming abuses by law enforcement and in some cases the military forces.  Many are acutely aware of how the Bible sets forth unprecedented events set to begin on a worldwide basis in the near future.  Unfortunately, only a few know how to plan for and implement an effective means to deal with what is coming.

Just more than 500 people attended the MidAmerica Nazarene University President’s Honors last Friday night, April 12, and after the final bite of dessert had been taken and the final bid had been accepted, a record total of $425,000 had been raised for student scholarships.

“It was a very good night,” said MNU spokesperson April Hansen, director of development for annual programs. “Going into the event, we had raised more than $315,000 in sponsorships and ticket sales, so we raised $110,000 that night through the (silent and live) auctions.”

Highlighting the event was the honoring of Dr. Ray and Elaine Cook, Wichita, with MNU’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Ray Cook, who died last fall, was a long-time chair for MNU’s Board of Trustees. The Cooks also have been significant donors to the university, Hansen said. MNU’s Cook Center is named in their honor because of their financial support to the university.

After raising $303,000 in last year’s debut event, MNU set a goal to raise $350,00o this year.

Some 90 items were up for bid in the silent auction and some of the high-bid items in the live auction were Some high-end items in the live auction included a signed Thomas Kinkade print valued at $15,000 and a two-day hunting trip at the Flint Hills Lodge, a private hunting club in southeast Kansas.

There is a blogger from Lawrence named Meg. She’s a Kansan, loves the Flint Hills and is extremely upset over House Bill 2366.

On her blog, Buttered Toast, she writes about her thoughts of HB 2366, about the person who introduced the bill, Chairman of the Energy and Environment Committee Rep. Dennis Hedke, R-Wichita, and, with the use of what some will consider offensive language, tries to ignite the fires of contempt in Kansans to fight what she considers a gross injustice that would take place if this bill ever sees the light of day.

Her blog entry, Calling All Kansans, provides some background of the bill and Hedke, who has publicly said he doesn’t believe in any global warming theories. Her wrath came from reading this Bloomberg article. Continue reading
