Hour 1: Narcissism

Dawn and Steve in the Morning share a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International about a faith that doesn't ask.

"A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah." And He left them and departed.   Matthew 16:4

 Phil Herndon is in-studio to talk with us about narcissism from a biblical perspective. Phil Herndon (MA, LPC-MHSP, NCC) is the Clinical Director at River Tree Center in Murfreesboro, TN.  His therapeutic approach is grounded in the Spiritual Root System™ and is informed by the work of Irvin Yalom and Dan Allender. He also integrates perspectives from Judeo-Christian traditions, existential philosophy, and pastoral care. Phil completed graduate school in 1992 with Master of Arts degrees in counseling and religious education. Phil lives in Murfreesboro with his wife Sheila and they have one son, Luke.


Hour 2: Church Hurt

The enemy loves to divide us. We continue the conversation with Phil Herndon about church hurt and listeners weigh in with their questions.
