LUTHERAN HOUR ON WJAG CALENDAR 2013:  We are in the process of setting up the sponsorship 2013 calendar.  Do you have a special event happening in your family in 2013?  In 2012 we had a unique sponsorship for a WJAG Lutheran Hour broadcast.  Grandparents sponsored a broadcast to praise the Lord and to honor the marriage of their granddaughter.  I have been doing this since 1999.  That was a first!  Do you have a special birthday, anniversary, or a memorial?  Now is the time to make those arrangements.  Contact Arlan Warneke at 402-329-6686 or via e-mail at
