Right Down the Road

​What’s right down the road from you? Last week on Chris Fabry Live, a caller told her story about a fractured relationship. Her dad left, ran away, was estranged for decades. Then he came back. Moved right down the road. And Carolyn had to make the hard decision to forgive. Is there something right down the road from you that God has been showing you, a place He’s nudging you—working on your heart?

The Unsaved Christian

You’ve heard the old saying about standing in a garage doesn’t make you a car anymore than standing in a church makes you a Christian, right? On Chris Fabry Live, we’ll talk about the “unsaved Christian.” That may sound oxymoronic—but a study shows 80% of adults polled believed in God but only 56% believed in the God described in the Bible. Join us for The Unsaved Christian, on Chris Fabry Live.
