On Thursday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, professor, pastor, and podcaster Jeff Struecker joins us to recount the story of The Real Black Hawk Down. The story of Black Hawk Down began when Delta Force arrested 20 Somalis. During the assault, a Black Hawk helicopter was shot down and the rescuers were ambushed. Eighteen Americans were killed.
We live in a performance-based world—but happy and hope-filled marriages thrive on grace. Marriage was God’s idea, so we know He designed it to be very, very good. But why do most marriages look disengaged, unappealing, or at best a bit stagnant? On Monday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Brad & Marilyn Rhoads share how a revelation of God's grace and fresh conviction of the need for intentional investment transformed their hearts and relationship. They ask you to explore with them what a grace marriage looks like.
On Monday's Memorial Day edition of Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, military wife Megan B. Brown admits she honestly did not know what she signed up for when she fell in love with a military man and had visions of adventure. In much the same way, when we surrender our lives to Jesus Christ, most of us have no idea what we are “signing up for.” We were probably so overwhelmed by His love; we weren’t necessarily focused on the sacrifices that would follow. Megan helps us see that we’re right where we’re supposed to be—chosen for this specific time and place. Together, we’ll see what it means to follow Jesus, love people, and live on mission.
