Would you like to live the good life? What does that really look like? How can we bring the good life to others? Friday we visit with former NFL player, Pastor Derwin Gray. Derwin will share about his journey for happiness and what he discovered was the source of true blessing. He'll also show us how we can be agents of peace in our communities, helping to foster healing and flourishing in our embattled cities.
Granparents Day is coming Sunday and Friday we'll talk about the value of age and the importance of honoring the old. Isabel Tom will join the conversation, encouraging us to honor our parents and grandparent and value their contribution to our family and society. Isabel will offer ideas for how we can communicate our care and love to the elderly and how, in turn, we find incredible wisdom and blessing.
Catch up on the Mid-Morning Show Coffee Break!
