Glenn shares amazing stories of families you'll be helping on Friday's Day of Service

Tens of thousands of volunteers will come together this Friday in Dallas for Restoring Love's day of service. As this day approaches, Glenn wanted to share some of the amazing stories of faith, hope and charity he has heard the last few months.

"With all of the bad news that is happening in the world, let me give you a couple of stories," he told his radio audience.

Billy Harris and his wife live in the Fort Worth/Dallas area in a home that was built during the Depression era, Glenn explained. Bill has to use a cane in order to walk and has had health problems for several years. His wife has some several health concerns herself - cancer, for one, which recently took her foot. As a result she is going to be stuck in a wheelchair for quite some time. She's currently recovering from the amputation in the hospital.

A few months ago someone reached out to Glenn and told him about the Harris' situation. Their home is falling into disrepair and in desperate need of a paint job. This is one of the homes where volunteers will be on Friday.

Glenn explained the there are contractors volunteering their time from all across the country to join the day of service this week. When they went to the Harris' home last weekend and realized just how bad of shape it was in.

"When she comes home, there's no way that she could even get into the house because she's in a wheelchair. She's having her foot removed. The contractors decided she couldn't come home to a house that's in this condition" Glenn explained.

The home currently has five steps at the entrance that the husband, who is sick himself, would have to drag her up. The contractors are going to build them a ramp. They're repairing and replacing all of the windows.

The Harris' house is just one example of the service projects taking place on Friday. Today, while contractors were power washing one of the homes so it will be ready to get painted on Friday there was a poor couple who lived in one of the homes. They told the contractors they had been praying all week for the people coming to work on the day of service.

The couple wanted to give back somehow and knew they needed to tithe, but they don't have any money. All they had in their pantry was rice and beans. They took 10% of their rice and beans and they brought it down to a homeless shelter and donated it to those who are less fortunate than they are.

"Blessings are coming.  Miracles are going to happen.  And you will see and feel things.  If you were here for Washington when we went and did Restoring Honor, if you were with us, one of the lucky few to be able to come with us in Jerusalem, I have to tell ya I think that's going to be child's play."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
