Love, with open arms and a servant’s heart, could be the bridge
that encourages someone to consider a relationship with Jesus…
Have you ever listened to the radio and wondered why we call ourselves The Bridge?
In biblical times, children were given names to honor God, and often to give the child character. The Bible talks about names a lot, and God famously changed the names of several people to reveal and assure them that He would fulfill His plan through them.
After prayer and discussion, we decided “The Bridge” captured our core desire – that this new radio ministry would connect people – people that would otherwise not be connected. A bridge improves life in a community, and we also wanted to be known for that.
Ten years later we look at the world around us and see that God inspired our mission and our name.
Our world is so disconnected, so divided. The mission of The Bridge has never been more important; the difference between what you hear on The Bridge compared to other media has never been more stark.
We believe Jesus is the answer. Specifically, His message of love.
In the book of Matthew, Jesus tells us the greatest commandment is to love God with all of our heart and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Wow, that’s definitely easier said than done, isn’t it?
But what if we did?
What if we turned the other cheek, gave a cup of cold water to our enemies, and responded to anger with kindness? Jesus did all those things. What if we prayed for our leaders, and what if we helped widows and children without families? He instructed us to do those things.
What does that have to do with The Bridge?
We believe LOVE IS THE BRIDGE.
Love, with open arms and a servant’s heart, could be the bridge that encourages someone to consider a relationship with Jesus. We’ve seen it happen. At a drive-through in Seaford, DE, a Bridge listener paid for the pizza for the car behind them. The family that received the pizza read the card explaining the Drive Thru Connection, and started listening to The Bridge. They ended up attending church and the entire family came to Christ. Because a stranger demonstrated love.
Believing that Love is The Bridge is the reason behind what we do here at The Bridge, including our annual service day “Hands & Feet.” It’s why we just handed out hundreds of snow cones and ice cream cones to medical workers in the area, and why we participated in National Night Out in Delaware and Maryland, showing our local law enforcement that we love and honor them! Listeners wrote positive messages on sticky notes and covered police cruisers with encouragement.
Love is why The Bridge family recently raised $54,000 to help victims of the earthquake in Haiti, and over $80,000 to help kids in three developing nations receive fresh water, food, and a Christian education. Love is The Bridge between our community and the village of La Union Abajo in the Dominican Republic, where we’re helping kids learn how to sew and bake so they have a future.
Love is The Bridge.
