Recently, Earl Sorrell became a publisher author. His book, Get Right Church-Preparing to Go Home, published by Christian Faith Publishing, (https://www.christianfaithpublishing.com ) is a testimony of some of the things you can expect in his show, Get Right Church -Living THE Life! His love for broadcasting and music will serve him well as he brings a unique style to Zeubien FX Jazz Radio.
During his days in the music industry, Earl became a member of Jamm Street Recording Studio, Burlingame. CA, owned and operated by Carlos “Apache” Tate. The San Francisco Bay Area is known for some of the best musicians in the industry and Earl have either worked with them and or made friends during his association in the industry. His goal is to give his audience a chance to meet them.
Brother Sorrell, as he is affectionately known is a devout Christian. He’s served as a Deacon, Elder, Sunday School Teacher, and Assistant-Choir Director for the Youth-Young Adult choir and Male Chorus, Trustee Board members and other auxiliaries and ministries in church. He also served as a Counselor, Men’s Bible Instructor and Musician in the Church. He dedicates time to any young person that needs mentoring in school, business, and personal life planning.
Earl has been successful in business both government and private sectors receiving numerous awards; considers his most valuable and prized awards (which he displays on his wall) are those received for his community outreach service to schools and churches and those received by his grandchildren as they grow in the knowledge and grace of God.
Earl’s life experiences and you the audience life experiences will be the foundation for what this show will feature. We all know life is not scripted. Life comes at you from all angles and different situations. The program, Get Right Church-Living THE Life, will do the same. As a Christian, Earl wants everyone to know and understand, “We chose the paths of life we take. Sometimes those paths are intentionally and at times unintentionally. Nevertheless, a choice was made and we must live in the moment or moments to come.”
It is Earl’s hope that this show will have a positive effect and help you to view life in a new light. For him, he believes the scripture John 4:4 “Ye are of God, little children and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” This is why the show is called Get Right Church-Living THE Life. If we can get our Temples (Body, Mind, and Soul {synonym-Church}) right with God, we can then start to live a better quality of life, which would be “THE Life” God intends for us to have.
