 · Main Street Living is a Lutheran Television program that is endorsed by the Minnesota North District of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. The program receives no funding from the District, but is totally funded by viewers and congregations of the KBJRChannel 6 Viewing area. The program is broadcast on KBJR-Channel 6, the CBS network affiliate in Duluth on Sunday morning, starting at 9:30 AM. The first 30 minutes are remastered episodes of the popular “This is the Life” series that was very popular in the 70’s and 80’s. The second half of the program is a modified Lutheran worship service that features a different Pastor each week, from the station’s broadcast area.
