This hour we will discover who John Muir was and we will hear the story of one episode of his life that changed him forever. Plus, we will find out what tolerance really means. We then hear the history of Christmas and its impact on American history. Don’t miss this fascinating conversation!
Are you struggling this Christmas? Have joy and peace eluded you? Discover healing power in the person of God. Countless Christians face depression and anxiety, yet few resources address these challenges through both a spiritual and therapeutic lens. Join us as we explore some of the names of God to help us deepen our understanding of who He is, find meaning in your pain, and renew your strength. The more we understand God, the less power our dark thoughts and feelings have over us. Let’s draw closer to Him and let hope color our world again.
