3-26-12 Hope Channel Announces Two Live, Interactive Easter Programs
Join the live discussion
Hope Channel invites you to watch, and join the discussion, during The Seven Last Words of Christ, a special two-hour edition of the popular, live call-in program Let’s Pray! Immediately following will be a special live edition of Cross Connection titled The Empty Tomb. Cross Connection is one of Hope Channel’s new live, call-in Bible study programs that follows Let’s Pray! each Monday through Thursday evening.
“These will be two a great programs to tell your church, family, friends, and neighbors about,” says Let’s Pray! co-host Pastor David Franklin. “Kandus Thorp and I will cover, from several perspectives, the seven famous final statements Jesus made while He was hanging on the cross.” Joining the Franklin and Thorp will be US Senate Chaplain Barry Black, Pastor Randy Roberts from the Loma Linda University Church, and other guest experts.
“But the Easter story doesn’t end with Christ’s sacrifice,” says Pastor Oleg Kostyuk, host of Cross Connection. “The fact that He conquered death with His resurrection is just as important to our faith.” Kostyuk will discuss with viewers what Christ’s resurrection means for our lives today. He’ll be joined by Pastor Shawn Boonstra, host of Disclosure: The Future Revealed; Pastor Brad Thorp, host of Beginnings; and Chantal Klingbeil, host of storyLine.
The live Let’s Pray airs Friday, April 6, at 7:00 p.m. ET (4:00 p.m. PT) followed by the live Cross Connection. The three-hour block will replay beginning at 7:00 p.m. PT (10:00 p.m. ET). Encore presentations will air Saturday, April 7, beginning at 2:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.; and on Easter Sunday, April 8, beginning at 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. ET.
