A Christian music network of radio stations is challenging Christians to make a difference. They encourage Christians to pay for the food for the car behind them at the drive-through of fast food restaurants. They announce their goal is to brighten someone’s day.

If we asked the people running this Christian music radio network why they don’t tell people about Jesus, they wouldn’t understand. To them, making someone smile is Jesus. That’s the only Jesus they know. They also had a pledge drive to help save Detroit. Through evangelism? No, of course not. They were very excited about building an “Imaginarium Creative Center” for Detroit youth to hang out after school and discover creative arts. Sure, that kind of thinking will save Detroit.
