The Song // Beside Bethesda
Air Date October 2, 2014
Hour 1 - The Song
Richard Ramsey had an idea for a movie—recast the life of Solomon from the Bible in a contemporary story. And he decided to use the motif of the music industry to tackle the big messages in the life of Solomon and in David’s life as well. The film is called The Song and Richard wrote the screenplay.
Hour 2 - Beside Bethesda
Joni Eareckson Tada visited the healing pool of Bethesda. Hear about the deeper healing she found and what God wants to do in your heart as well. Don’t miss the conversation.
