Join us this hour to hear a fabulous new Christmas music duet that is destined to be a classic. Then learn why so many pastors are contemplating leaving their jobs. Plus, we will look at some of the stories making headlines.
God's peace, His shalom, can penetrate every aspect of your life--spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally. Although the word shalom appears 550 times in the Scriptures and was a constant theme in Jesus' teachings, it is a neglected topic today. As a result, God's peace has been elusive to so many followers of Jesus.
Since we are made in God's image, you could say we have been prewired for happiness. We are prewired for hope. We are prewired for peace. If you are longing for healing and wholeness, then join us as our guest helps us discover how to live and apply shalom in God’s world today.
Keith Getty is a modern hymn writer. In re-inventing the traditional hymn form, Keith and his wife Kristin have created a distinguished catalogue of songs teaching Christian doctrine and crossing genres by connecting the world of traditional and classical composition with contemporary and globally-accessible melodies. Keith’s most popular hymn, “In Christ Alone,” was co-written with Stuart Townsend and is the #1 most popular hymn sung in the UK for the past nine years. In 2017 the Getty’s created their global church music conference, Sing! The Getty Music Worship Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. The Gettys' hymns are used increasingly both in contemporary and traditional circles, being included in most modern hymnbooks (with a number of these now listing “Getty” as the most-featured composers), while in the more contemporary church, more than 60 of their songs are featured on top 2,000 CCLI charts between the UK and USA.
