miraculous Christmas birth, which brought a “new beginning” to all who believe! What a great reminder as we begin this New Year…2012! This beautiful face of the baby Jesus is the “Christ Portrait” (the second in a series—you’ll want to collect them all) that Hour of Power wants to send to you today. Your beautiful, full-color “Christ Portrait” measures 5” x 7” and is suitable for framing. American master sculptor, J. Seward Johnson depicted the face of the baby Jesus in glistening stainless steel so that anyone standing before this statue would see their own skin tone reflected back at them in the mirror-like surface—Jesus belongs to all people of all colors of all cultures in all places. You’re encouraged to write to the Hour of Power TODAY to receive your very own copy of this unique image of the blessed Christ Child. This “Christ Portrait,” and the statue it depicts, is exclusive to Hour of Power viewers and friends…there is none other like it anywhere in the world.

LAUNCHING SOON…

Celebrate the New Year as an Eagle Partner 2012!

S

ince 1983, the televised Hour of Power has put its hope in our faithful and ongoing Eagle Partners in ministry. They remain the sustaining core of this great work providing, annually, nearly 30% of the ministry’s total operational dollars. And never have the Eagle Partners been more important than they are today. What will only 1,000 new Eagle Partners do for our efforts to continue to reach millions of persons each week? One thousand new Eagle Partners in 2012 will add $600,000 of strengthening power to the wings that lift Hour of Power up and onto the airwaves every week—$600,000! Plans are underway right now to unveil a beautiful, sparkling, Lucite desktop memento to send to each Eagle Partner in 2012, to thank them and inspire them throughout the year of their Eagle support. Eagle Partners pledge one-time gifts of $600 (or 12 monthly gifts of $50 each). Golden Eagles pledge one-time gifts of $1,200 (or 12 monthly gifts of $100 each). As a Golden Eagle, along with your Lucite memento, you’ll also receive a certificate, personalized with your name suitable for framing. Watch for the Eagle launch soon!

We love your sermons—they are warm, positive, and helpful for our lives today. And also interesting and to the point, and filled with love. We see Jesus through them, and then you give the invitation to

magine you are running in a race for your life. You have tripped and have fallen behind. It appears as though all is lost. But all of a sudden the referee blows the whistle and says, “False start! We are going to start the race over again.” That is what a new beginning feels like! And that is what we are experiencing at the Crystal Cathedral…a new beginning…we are liberated…free…to run the race before us! What is the race before us at Crystal Cathedral? It is to proclaim in words and works the message, “God loves you and so do I!” We will do this in the following ways, as we: GROW our international televised ministry, the Hour of Power, reaching out to include a younger demographic so that this positive message of Jesus Christ will live on through generation after generation. EVOLVE our current televised Hour of Power format so that it becomes more visible and accessible on the Internet and though other media platforms. BUILD a humanitarian track that demonstrates to those with the greatest need that God has not forgotten them, but He loves them. We’ll accomplish this, in part, through: 1) Launching a Dream Center (Los Angeles) satellite here on our campus—we call it Hope Center, where people living on the streets, under bridges—men, women, and yes, children— can find hope and begin to dream again! 2) Building and delivering more houses for homeless families in Mexico—six a year. 3) Planting Christian schools around the world in pockets of high illiteracy. TACKLE cyber bullying through our New Hope Online that is targeted at teens around the world who have lost all hope and are at the point of taking their own lives. We have an exciting race that we are going to run here at Crystal Cathedral. And we will complete it with God’s help. Thank you for running alongside! Thank you for cheering from the sidelines…and from the front lines! Thank you for believing in the message and for helping us to deliver it to God’s hurting people around the world!

…we are liberated… free…to run the race before us!”
