Cochren & Co, signed to Gotee Records, have just announced the release of their highly anticipated second album, Running Home. The album, set to be released on February 3rd, features a blend of pop, rock, soul, and blues, and is filled with uplifting lyrics and melodies.
According to the band’s frontman, Michael Cochren, the album is about “running into the arms of God” and finding comfort, rest, safety, and love in one’s relationship with God.
“This album is all about running into the arms of God,” shares Cochren. “It’s my story, but I also believe it’s the story of anyone who has found themselves far from home spiritually. We’ve all heard the saying there’s no place like home. When I think of what ‘home’ means, I think of comfort, rest, safety, and love. When we go off looking for these things in the broken world, we will never find them. Ultimately, we only find what we need when we return to our loving God.”

You may be surprised that visualizing data isn’t much different. Data visualization is the art of accurately presenting data in a way that captures the viewer’s attention and leads them to take action.
As Computer Science Professor, Ben Schneiderman, said, “Visualization gives you answers to questions you didn’t know you had.”

KTIS/Minneapolis partnered with listeners to provide 12 “Christmas Blessings” to members of the community. KTIS listeners nominated individuals and families who had unique and difficult stories. 12 stories were selected and KTIS worked with donors to meet needs throughout the Christmas season.
“We cannot thank KTIS and the donor enough.” said Dorie, the mother of one of the recipients. “Life can be challenging but turning to the Lord in faith lifts us up and carries us through. Our entire family is beyond grateful for this Christmas Blessing.”
“It was an incredible privilege for 98.5 KTIS to walk alongside some amazing Twin Cities families during the Christmas season.” said Matt Deane, 98.5 KTIS Program Director. “While we know that a Christmas Blessing from 98.5 KTIS will not solve all the issues they are facing, our team did a remarkable job of showing God’s love while helping them in some very practical ways.”
