This week marks the 62nd anniversary of the communist revolution in Cuba. In recent days widespread protests for change by the Cuban people have been met by violent government opposition. Where does that leave the Church and Christians on the island? Friday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Anna Lee Stangl, who is Joint Head of Advocacy at CSW will share what she knows about several pastors, some who have been detained, in Cuba.
As the world's attention turns to competition at the Olympics, there are many areas of concern around the globe . . . Sara Forhetz, national spokesperson at Convoy of Hope, joins Friday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte to share how people of faith are meeting the needs of people in crisis in neighboring nations and right here at home.
Join us in July for the Mornings with Eric and Brigitte Book Club! People like to say, "Prayer works." But what does that mean? Prayer works for what? Getting the answers from God that we want so much? While God certainly cares for your deepest needs, Skye Jethani wants you to know that prayer is so much more than a two-way transaction with a heavenly vending machine. As you read this book, this author wants to take you deeper into what Jesus, the lover of your soul, had to say about talking with God.
