What are our attitudes towards aging, and how do they affect our views of the elderly? Join Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Tuesday when writer, speaker and educator, Isabel Tom shares what she learned growing up living with grandparents and spending a decade of her career serving older adults. Our lack of understanding may be keeping us from delighting in these irreplaceable relationships.
Tuesday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Todd Nettleton, Chief of Media Relations and Message Integration for Voice of the Martyrs will give an update on how VOM is encouraging and empowering Christians all over the world to fulfill the Great Commission where they are persecuted for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. VOM also helps believers rebuild their lives and Christian witness in countries where they have formerly suffered oppression.
