Manager’s Memo 10-16-2015
Wanda and I are headed to Idaho this weekend to be part of the 25th anniversary celebration gala for the radio station we helped build in Boise in 1990. It will be good to be back among friends two decades in the making, wandering around some of our favorite spots, marveling at the changes five short years have wrought. And to celebrate what twenty-five years of sharing God’s goodness means to a group of radio listeners and their families.
The theme for the gala is legacy and they want me to reminisce and talk about the way things used to be. Who better to do that than a curmudgeonly old guy with a few wrinkles and some gray hairs on his head, right?
Legacy is an interesting concept for me as I sneak up on my sixtieth birthday. I’ll admit it’s crossed my mind when I think about the first five decades of my life and the choices I’ve made. But as I think about what I might say to those gathered to celebrate what they think of as my legacy, I think I’ll remind them there is only one really important day in my past, and all our pasts for that matter, and that’s the day I told God I was tired of wrestling with Him and He was free to set my course from that moment on. I’ll probably also remind them all we should be concerned about for today is hanging on to the hand of the One who knows what tomorrow brings and love those around us.
What better legacy could you ask for than that?
For 88.3 The Journey, I’m a nostalgic General Manager Mike Agee.
