Hour 1: Why is the Christian Life so Difficult?

Have you ever asked this question, “Why is the Christian life so difficult?" You have asked Jesus to save you and instead of your struggles becoming less they intensify? Pastor Brian Bill says we do a disservice to people to imply that life in Christ is free of adversity. Join Pastor Brian Bill as he delves into Luke 9:23-26, sharing how salvation is delightful but discipleship is often difficult.



Hour 2: Project Respond Shoe Celebration

How does a pair of shoes make a difference in Romania? We’ll find out on Tuesday’s program. We’ll also hear how you can be a part of the Project Respond Shoe Celebration this weekend.  Saturday you’ll have an opportunity to give a new pair of shoes and help to process the over 2500 shoes that will be collected from area individuals and churches. You’ll also hear about the opportunities to go and personally deliver the shoes and share the love of Christ in Romania. Be listening as ACF Founder and Executive Director Tim Oloffson joins Ken and Deb to share how God is at work and how you can join Him in the work of Another Child Foundation.


Hour 3: Morning Devotional

Ken's morning devotional comes from Henry T. Blackaby and Richard Blackaby's  "Experiencing God Day-by-day: Devotional"
