How do Jewish people celebrate the holiday of Purim today? What does Purim mean, and what are the traditions that are followed? If we are familiar with the book of Esther, we will understand what this celebration is all about. Friday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Greg Savitt with Rock of Israel Ministries joins us to talk about Purim, what it means to the Jewish people, and how they celebrate this holiday.
On Monday’s Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Keith and Kristyn Getty join us to talk about their upcoming St. Patrick’s Day Celebration, with live dancing, songs, and Irish hymns. Enjoy some foot-stomping Irish reels and jigs, cultural Irish dance, and sacred Celtic songs and melodies. All of us will be able to sing along with the Getty's best-known hymns like "In Christ Alone" and many others. TBN, the world’s largest religious broadcaster, is airing this St. Patrick's Celebration with the Gettys on Thursday, March 17th, at 8 ET/7CT.
Greg Savitt was born and raised as a conservative Jew in a Chicago suburb. He attended Hebrew School, learned about Jewish traditions, liturgy, and the Hebrew language; yet he does not remember the rabbis talking about God as if He could be known personally. At age 16, while attending a Christian youth function, friends told him about Jesus, but it frightened him. As he got older, even though he had plenty of friends, money, and good times, he knew something was missing. He began attending church regularly as friends continued to witness to him. He left his job as a CPA in 1997 to become a full-time evangelist with Jews for Jesus for 14 years. Greg is now serving with Rock of Israel as the Director Jewish Evangelism in Florida.
Keith and Kristyn Getty occupy a unique space in the world of music today as preeminent modern hymn writers. In re-inventing the traditional hymn form, they have created a catalogue of songs teaching Christian doctrine and crossing the genres of traditional, classical, folk and contemporary composition which are sung the world over. They’re best known for “In Christ Alone,” along with the popular U.S. recording, Awaken The Dawn and Joy – An Irish Christmas. The Gettys' hymns are used increasingly both in contemporary and traditional circles, being included in most modern hymnbooks (with a number of these now listing “Getty” as the most-featured composers), while in the more contemporary church, more than 60 of their songs are featured on top 2,000 CCLI charts between the UK and USA. The Gettys live between Northern Ireland and Nashville with their four daughters.
