Sunshine, Gratitude, and a Fundraiser Update
There’s nothing like a song to capture our current circumstances. Do you remember this one?
There is sunshine in my soul today
More glorious and bright
Than glows in any earthly sky
For Jesus is my light
There is music in my soul today
A carol to my King
And Jesus, listening can hear
The song I cannot sing
There is gladness in my soul today
And hope, and praise, and love
For blessings which He gives me now
For joys laid up above
I could almost hear you singing along! These are the stanzas (without the chorus) to Sunshine in My Soul. The first stanza symbolizes my delight with how the Summer Fundraiser is progressing. The second stanza seems so appropriate to our unusual (and, for many, difficult) times.
The third stanza expresses how our lives have been enriched during our Summer Fundraiser by the Messages of Hope. They have given us just what we needed to hear. Have you heard them all?
Our minds have been informed by the news, commentary, and features from the Adventist community around the globe, and we have been given great reading these last 10 days. We’ve realized we’re not alone, and that has lifted our spirits.
And you have also been generous with your giving to fund the mission of independent journalism and innovative ministry resources here at Adventist Today.
Over the past 10 days we asked to hear from…
150 AT readers who would give a $60 one-time (or $5/month) gift
70 AT readers who would give a $300 one-time (or $25/month) gift
15 AT readers who would give a $1,200 one-time (or $100/month) gift
You have generously given. How can we thank you enough for believing in Adventist Today! We have heard from 167 readers/viewers who have given $24,000 so far. Wow!
We’d love to hear from those who still want to say, “We’re with you, Adventist Today!” Our experience is, an amount of money equal to what comes in through our 10-day fundraiser, still comes in through the end of the month.
If you have not done so already, please show your support in one of the following ways…
Use the response card and envelope we’ve mailed to you to send a check to AT (or use your own envelope and mail to the address provided below)
Or, call 800.236.3641 or 503.826.8600 and we’ll fill out the online form for you
With sunshine in my soul today,
Paul Richardson, COO
For the Entire AT Team
