Hour 1: The Persecuted Church | China

China does not apologize for it's treatment towards Christian Pastors. Kelli and Steve share some painful news from Christian News Headlines, “These pastors have no right to legal representation,” the attorney said. “If they have someone brave enough to be their lawyer, the pastor can be beaten up before seeing that lawyer. And their attorney can be beaten as well.”  There is hope in our Savior. Pray for your persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ.

Hour 2: Biblical Worldview Question of the Week

Why didn't Jesus' genealogy reflect a more regal line?

Jesus's bloodline was anything but holy and majestic; it was downright dysfunctional and scandalous! Nancy Fitzgerald herolds the birth of a King with a family just like yours and mine.  "God knew what He was doing. He was well aware of the gross sins that we being committed by those who were in the family line of Jesus. God has never glossed over the flaws of human beings. God came to pay the price for the sins found in His own line. He embraced the nitty-gritty, the fallen, ugly, fickle, two-faced people like you and me. He saw everyone as redeemable." http://anchorsaway.org/why-didnt-jesuss-genealogy-reflect-a-more-regal-line

Hour 3: Loving the LGBTQ Community

Do you ever feel like someone is trying to trap you?  Do you feel cornered in a conversation?  Ty Wyss, Walls Down Ministry, says the best way to build trust with our LGBTQ friends and family is to make authentic relationships and conversations, taking a genuine interest in their lives and thoughts.  We must deal with our own frustration and grief, and love unconditionally.  For those in the gay lifestyle, being honest with your feelings is the best place to start with God.  We can never control how people respond, but God is always kind.
