To the editor:
On Sunday, Dec. 9, the snowflakes were beautiful and very abundant. Nearly all the area church services were cancelled. This is what prompted my husband and I to look for a TV service.
We found a wonderful service at 10 a.m. on the Sioux Falls, S.D., station. It is named the "Christian Worship Hour." The pastor, Dr. Harold Salem, and this service from Aberdeen, S.D., have been televised for years. I had mistakenly presumed he had retired, but after viewing this service it is very evident why he hasn't.
His message was very timely about gift giving and the true meaning of Christmas. He also reads letters from viewers. They speak so strongly of the hope and encouragement he gives to shut-ins, the elderly or people who feel they have nothing left to look forward to in life.
Dr. Salem's love and compassion for all of us comes through so loud and clear. So I would encourage you for yourself, a shut-in, or just someone who has lost interest in church to give this television ministry a try.
I hope you will be very blessed and tell others about the service, too. He also spoke about a daily devotion on the internet that you can access at the worshiphour.com
