Hour 1: It’s A Wonderful Life

If George and Mary Bailey are annual guests at your home every winter, you already know that It's a Wonderful Life is more than just a holiday tradition--it's a powerful reminder that our lives can change everyone around us, for better or worse. But what can this Christmas classic teach us about our everyday lives? Our guest invites us to revisit the defining lessons in Frank Capra's 1946 classic and discover new dimensions of the film you've seen time and again, including:

· What can we all learn from Mary's quiet contentedness?

· Can George's selflessness make you rethink your own priorities?

· What impact do we have on the people around us?

Discover why It's a Wonderful Life is more than just a holiday tradition--it's an inspiration for us to lead better lives, to become people of honor and integrity, and to recognize what really matters.

Hour 2: Angels

Nearly eight in ten Americans believe in angels. Even among those who never attend church, it’s four out of ten. In the United Kingdom, one in three people believes they have a guardian angel. You may well be one of them. Every tenth person in your street or workplace thinks they may have seen or heard an angel in some way. Books telling the story of angelic encounters are best sellers. Despite the widespread rejection of Christianity in our culture, many people are still fascinated by angels. But what can we know for sure about angels? Are we dependent on second–hand accounts? Are we left with conjecture and guesswork? Join us as our guest delves into the mysterious world of angels and shows us what the Bible says about what angels are, what they do, and where they lead us.
