Whose voice are you listening to during this pandemic? Are you tuned into the fear in your mind, the experts in the media, the government officials, or those with strong opinions in your family? Wednesday we visit with author/hospital chaplain J.S. Park, who has encountered hundreds of patients, listening to their stories and witnessing their last words. Through his experiences he has seen how the voices we listen to and carry with us can both harm and heal. Join the conversation as we seek to find our authentic voice in a world of mixed messages.
In a season of stress and worry, is it possible to experience renewal? If you are desperately seeking that new breath of life into your walk, be listening as we visit with Ray Pritchard.

Just as we see the new life budding all around us outside, join the conversation on how we can be revived for a new season of ministry by being transformed within.
Ordinary life in Russia is bleak with a large population of orphans, problems with alcohol addiction, and low pay. Add to these issues the current pandemic and the conditions have gone from bad to worse. Wednesday we’ll hear about the ministry of Slavic Gospel Association in helping churches to reach out to those in desperate need with COVID Care Kits. Join Ken and Deb as they welcome SGA President Michael Johnson, who is calling on all prayer warriors to fervently pray as COVID-19 spreads through Russia, Georgia, Ukraine, and other Slavic nations – as well as threatening the Russian-speaking community in Israel.
