The personal meaning of Easter, interpreted by local Christian leaders in a radio roundtable discussion, will be the subject of a special broadcast this week on public radio 91.3 WCPI. The program will be broadcast this Thursday at 9:05 a.m., and again at 9:15 p.m.
In the half-hour “Focus Extra,” four representatives of different church traditions offer their thoughts on the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ some 2,000 years ago and the continuing impact of that event on their lives today.
Described as a conversational, spontaneous discussion, the program continues a pre-Easter broadcast tradition dating back to the first years of service by 91.3 WCPI some 15 years ago.
Participating in the program as members of WCPI’s Faith and Values Panel are Wendy Curran, Jackie LeDuc, United Methodist pastor Willie Cameron, and House of Prayer at Short Mountain minister Thomas Measles. WCPI volunteer producer Bill Zechman serves as interview host and broadcast producer.
“As a public radio station that is not associated with or supported by any religious group, we welcome religious views from all serious and sincere thinkers,” said WCPI representative Mary Cantrell. “And since we receive absolutely no taxpayer funding from federal, state or local agencies, we are free of government restrictions that would hamper open access to programs that discuss religious beliefs and ideas.”
