We begin our broadcast looking at some of the stories making news. We then discuss a dangerous paradox (and legal problem) on one of the most powerful social media platforms in the world. We finish the hour with a much-needed conversation on how our media choices change daily. How does a Christian make wise and biblically obedient media choices? Our guest has some important guidelines to help youth leaders, parents and all believers who want to live a holy life.
Do you or someone you love struggle with depression? If so, know that you and your loved ones can go on. Our guest knows this from personal experience—his and his son’s. Today he shares their stories in an honest, practical, sometimes painful, and occasionally humorous way. You’ll find someone who understands what it means to live as a Christian with depression. He offers hope and help to those suffering from mental illness as well as those trying to help them. Even in the bleak browns of depression, even when the world looks hopeless, God still has a plan for people dealing with this issue. Join us to find encouragement to fight the good fight and keep the faith.
