Welcome to The What's Up Radio Program!

with Terry Lowry

Tune in Weekdays at these air times.

Informing, encouraging, enlisting and uplifting… introducing and covering cutting edge topics affecting you, your family, the church and our great land – America!

A Note From Sara Tracey, Managing Editor

It’s a scary time right now. We hear the news about the Coronavirus. We see the long lines at the grocery store. We drive by restaurants with empty parking lots.

I’ve been scrolling Facebook a lot over the last week or so ---- partly out of boredom --- partly out of needing information because we don’t have television (I’m #thatmom) ---- but mostly just to see the silly memes and pictures my friends are posting about #coronahysteria

But …. In all seriousness, there ARE people who are truly fearful. People who have no hope. People who truly see only the dark side of this horrible pandemic.

May this bring you hope and peace today. Trust God. He’s got this!

Discussed by Dr. Jane Orient

During the Coronavirus pandemic, who gets top treatment priority? Who makes these decisions?

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What is triage?

Is it common for hospitals and clinics to have emergency drills/procedures for triage?

Regarding the Coronavirus: Who gets the ventilator?

In Italy, some seniors are being denied care for the Coronavirus. Could this happen in the United States?

How can we pray for medical care providers who are treating patients with the Coronavirus?

Tune in to the next segment for more on this important topic with Ed Sydow, a former Army squadron PA medical officer, who currently works in the emergency room at a rural Nebraska hospital.

Discussed by Ed Sydow

How was Ed Sydow trained in triage while in the army? Ed discusses “DIME”: Delayed, Immediate, Minor, and Expectant treatment. In an ER, in a mass casualty situation, who receives attention first?

What is a “mass casualty event”?

If there are two patients with Coronavirus, but only one ventilator, who makes the difficult decision on who gets treatment?

Today’s Psalms for Living devotion is from Psalm 40:6-8

What is a burnt offering or a sin offering? In the Old Testament, people sacrificed a goat or lamb in exchange for their sins. Was that really necessary?

On the other hand, is a simple “I’m sorry” enough? After all, Jesus died in our place. Shouldn’t we give him more?

Day 5

Are you concerned/anxious/worried about the Coronavirus? Mark wants to flood your brain with positivity this week! I’m sure we all can use that!

Scripture Passage: Psalm 42 and Psalm 43

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Do you ever worry that you pray the same thing too much? Well, you shouldn’t! After all, Jesus prayed the same thing twice in the Garden of Gethsemane!

What did Jesus pray the third time? What happened after he prayed?

Psalms 42 and 43 are appropriate to pray and apply in our own lives.
God has worked in your life time after time – and He will do so over and over again!
Give God your concerns.
Trust Him.

Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy lesson has gone ONLINE for the next few weeks out of precaution due to the Coronavirus. On Sunday, March 15, Mark taught on Lent, including Lazarus Saturday, Palm Sunday, and Good Friday.
