Join us this hour as we cover the issue of life - both temporal and eternal. We start with the stories making headlines and then we shout out a praise report on a fabulous ministry that helps embryos find a permanent home. Hear about a major milestone that has just been achieved. Then we turn our heart toward the persecuted Church. Learn how others persevere in their faith – even when threated with death.
Twenty–two veterans take their own lives every day. The word ‘tragic’ only begins to describe the brokenness of this painful reality. Our guest, a Marine Corps veteran and pastor, argues that veteran suicide is not primarily a problem born out of exposure to combat and PTSD, but out of a broken relationship between people and God. He tells some of the stories of men he has known and addresses the reality of the reason veteran suicide is such a problem.
