Bob Bowman Gives Thanks for the Haven of Rest and FEBC

We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 1:2,3

How often do we overlook the words of thanksgiving that the Apostle Paul writes to the churches in Asia Minor? Bob Bowman and Charles Morris believe that we too often race past them. And so as we approach Thanksgiving in the United States, we’re bringing back a classic conversation from 2004 on giving thanks.

For anyone who has been around Haven any length of time, Bob Bowman is a name you’ll be very familiar with. A founding member of the Haven Quartet and founder of Far East Broadcasting Company, Bob was also the Friday Speaker for Haven from 1967-1984. On this episode, you’ll learn more about this history, as well as what both Bob and Charles were thankful for in 2004.

This episode also serves as a window into the past. Haven Today sounded much different in the early 2000’s. From the opening jingle to the quartet music that Bob hand-selected for this episode, this is truly a Thanksgiving blast from the past.

As you ponder what you’re thankful for this year, we hope this episode points you to all you have in Christ.

    please pray for salvation for my husband (Charlie)… He left me on 1/6 the only reason he gave for leaving is that he HAS to have a divorce and find someone else before he dies. It makes no sense. we have been married for 43 years he has filed for divorce. I am praying for complete restoration. please pray that God stops this divorce … I love my husband and want my marriage
