“I don’t want to gain the whole world and lose my soul.”
“Write your story on my heart.”
“The honest cries of breaking hearts are better than a hallelujah.”
These are some of my favorite lyrics from my favorite radio station, KLOVE. KLOVE is a nationwide, listener-supported Christian radio station. They feature a contemporary Christian music format featuring such artists as Toby Mac, Amy Grant and the Newsboys.
KLOVE radio also sponsors a car in NASCAR, fast becoming my favorite spectator sport. Driver Michael McDowell drives the #95 KLOVE car. KLOVE sees their NASCAR vehicle as an outreach effort, hoping to make more NASCAR fans familiar with their Christian music and Gospel message. I think it is a unique and admirable mission outreach. While I have yet to see McDowell win a race, I always root for him to do well because of his connection to KLOVE and Christianity. Hopefully he’ll be singing in victory lane soon.
