Our Featured Artists on this edition were Karen Peck & New River, with songs from their new CD, "Hope For All Nations." I liked what Karen said about having "hope" as a theme that runs through the songs on this recording because "hope" is a fundamental attribute of Christians — or should be. 1 Peter 1:3 says Christ has "caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurreciton of Jesus Christ from the dead..." And it's a "hope" that continues beyond this life (see 1 Cor. 15:19). I also enjoyed the song "I'm Gonna Love My Neighbor" — not just because of what it says but because about half-a-dozen other top artists joined Karen's group to sing on this song. And there's no more reassuring thing that you could do for a loved one than to tell them about heaven and how to get there, so that they can say, too, as the song you heard said, "I Know I'll Be There."

This was our official monthly Singing News Top 20 Countdown edition, based this time on the chart of favorites appearing in the magazine's November issue. As I mentioned on the program, having the same #1 song for two consecutive months is something that only very rarely happens. And that just goes to show how strong the message of the song "Chain Breaker" really is.
