The first batches of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine began distribution this week. According to a recent survey, about a quarter of US adults say they will not get such a vaccine; another quarter are not sure if they want to be vaccinated. Wednesday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Dr. Jim Denison of the Denison Forum joins us to discuss the ethical questions and answers around this new vaccine.
We don't like to admit it, but after reading the Luke 2 story of Christmas for years--or even decades--sometimes it doesn't grab our interest, and we begin to jump over the details without paying attention. That's why this book was written, The Characters of Christmas: The Unlikely People Caught Up in the Story of Jesus. Tuesday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, pastor and author, Daniel Darling helps us take a fresh look at the Christmas story by getting to know all the characters who played a part in Jesus' birth.
