Coming up Wednesday Todd Nettleton from Voice of the Martyrs will be with us to share stories from our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ. Be listening for specific prayer requests as well as ways we can join VOM in responding to family needs. Todd will also point us to the Day of the Christian Martyr that is later this month, as we remember those who've paid the ultimate price because of their faith in Christ.
These past few months have put a strain on our mental health. Statistics are showing that Americans are reporting an increase in anxiety and depression. What is the pathway to becoming well in our mental health through the uncertainty of COVID-19 and concerns regarding the civil unrest in our communities? Wednesday we will highlight a new podcast that focusses on faith and mental health issues, Becoming Well. Be listening as we visit with Dr. Deb Gorton, the host of that new podcast as we explore the connection between faith and mental health.
