The Swing Cat's Ball

Most of us are familiar with Jon & Noonie Fugler's involvement with K-Life, but did you know that there is another radio host in our midst?

It's Jim Borland.

Jim is the wife our Business Administrator, Kathy, the father of 7, a Cal Poly instructor in the area of Construction Management and now serving on our Annex Renewal Team. Jim also plays the sax in our Grace orchestra once in a while and helps on our tech team.

In addition to all that, Jim finds time to host the Swing Cat's Ball on KCBX, 90.1 FM on Fridays from 8:00 - 9:00 PM. The hour long program features the best of the big band era jazz including Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Delta Rhythm Boys, Woody Herman, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller, Count Basie and many, many more!

I haven't had a chance to listen yet, but I plan to.

I'm always amazed and encouraged when I hear of the people of Grace engaging in the community. Abraham Kuyper was right. . . .

"There is not one square inch of the entire creation about which Jesus Christ does not cry out, `This is mine, this belongs to me.'"

Involvement in the arts and every other good and enjoyable pursuit under the sun for the glory of God is part of the creation mandate and the new creation mandate.

You go, Jim!
