Join us this hour as we take a look at the world around us through the lens of Scripture. We start with some news stories and then move to a conversation on whether or not the tide is turning on the issue of transgenderism. We will also discuss why a “moral philosopher” feels damaging art for the sake of the environment is justified. We round out the hour finding out who the poet Robert Burns was and also examining the believer’s role with technology. Get ready for some fascinating conversation.
Taking care of our physical health is important but so is taking care of our mental health. How do we do that? What are some reminders for us to know that help us check how we are doing emotionally? Come with your questions as we learn to care for ourselves the way the Bible instructs us.
