Hour 1: National Mayflower Day

Join Dawn and Steve as they begin the morning with a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International about the condition of our hearts.

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.   Ezekiel 36:26

In addition, Dawn and Steve talk with Philip Quenby about the significance of the Mayflower. Writer and filmmaker Philip Quenby, formerly a partner in an international law firm, has a passion for understanding what the past has to say to us today. His book Redeeming a Nation offers biblical reflections on over a thousand years of English history, while the follow-up One Small Candle uses the story of the Mayflower Pilgrims to emphasize the importance of a biblical worldview for the development of freedom, democracy, and rule of law. His five-part documentary Magna Carta Unlocked examines how and why modern civil liberties grew on the back of a failed peace treaty – and what part the Bible played in that process.


Hour 2: Talking to Children About Cancer

Reverend Percy McCray Jr. gives us some insight on how to help children when there is a cancer diagnosis in the family based on his article "Blessed are the Children." Rev. Percy McCray Jr. has spent more than 20 years ministering to cancer patients and their caregivers at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA). An ordained minister, Rev. McCray is a member of the U.S. Chaplain Association. He has been recognized as one of the “most influential African Americans in Lake County (IL)” by the Chicago Peoples Voice newspaper for his religious and leadership roles within the community. Rev. McCray also hosts Health, Hope & Inspiration, an award-winning podcast developed to help people find answers about cancer, cancer prevention, and overall healthy living.
