Paul Henderson — NHL Alumni / Hall of Fame Inductee / Team Canada '72 HeroJust a few weeks ago, Paul was given some pretty tough news. He has Cancer. With Christmas upon us, chances are that many of us have loved ones who also have that dark cloud of Cancer hanging over their heads. So we thought we'd check in with one of Canada's heroes to find out how he's coping and how this news has affected his faith. We hope that Paul's brutal honesty and spiritual transparency will be an encouragement to you and your loved ones. Since 1972, the man who scored the goal heard from coast to coast has become a Canadian legend. Paul is a member of several sports halls of fame and has had his image depicted on a Canadian Mint coin, the first time a living person other than a sovereign has been depicted on a coin!
Amy Savin — Our First Ever Winner of So You Think God Wants You To Sing!As one of our top 12 finalists, Amy Savin came in second with our online voters, but the celebrity judges helped push her to the top of the pack. Seems as though Amy owes a big thank you to Jennifer Paige, Tal Bachman, Laila Biali, James Linderman, and our Grand Finale Judge syndicated radio host, DELILAH! (With over 25 million listeners, Love Songs with Delilah or Delilah After Dark has become one of the top syndicated radio programs across North America.) Amy won the Grand Prize! One of her songs will now be professionally mixed and mastered and ready for radio play on every radio station in the WORLD! (Special thanks to Geoff Bagg & www.lategig.com for donating close to $1000 worth of studio time.) However, she also won her own very special guest appearance on our show and will be performing a few songs on our last show of 2009!

This week on the Counsel Of Many: a 20 year old girl wants to know how to reconcile with her mother whom she hasn't spoken with for two years.
I'm 20 years old and living far away from home. I chose to live so far away because it was far away from my mother, and that was a definite advantage at the time. When I was 18 I had a major disagreement with her and had to move in with a friend to finish the school year. Now, two years later, I've thought about it quite a bit and I sort of want to reconcile but don't know how to go about it. I mean, God tells us to forgive others and respect our parents and all of that, but fails to mention how. I guess the reason we still haven't talked is that I'm still a bit mad and apprehensive so I haven't actually gotten around to initializing contact. I also have some self-confidence issues which always manage to get worse when I'm around her. Our initial argument was actually pretty insignificant: she disagreed with my career choice (which is fine) but gave me an ultimatum and told me I could either choose to leave home and go on that career path or stay home and go to university and get a government job (which was not fine). There were a few underlying issues but that was the straw that broke the camel's back. So my question is: how do I reconcile with her? How do I reach out and start up again? Is there a way to keep the confidence I've built up since I moved out? And how do I forgive and forget?"

Maybe you'd like to discuss some of our previous topics, or maybe you'd like our listeners to pray for someone, orrrrr maybe you want to just talk to Drew - no really - he has feelings too ya know! It's a perfect time for all you wanna-be theologians to ask Drew what he really believes.
