The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church is coming up the first of November and Wednesday we'll hear from Todd Nettleton how you can mobilize your church to pray. Todd will share stories from around the globe of brothers and sisters that are suffering severe persecution because of their faith in Jesus and their faithful witness for the gospel. Join the conversation Wednesday as we hear specific prayer requests and learn out about resources available for your church to learn more about the persecuted church.
Why do we think so differently about sin than previous generations? Why are some past generation vices now virtues? How can we know what is good, true, and pure? Wednesday we visit with John Koessler about these new mores of our time and how we need to unmask the disguise to see the unchanging truth of good and evil.
Catch up on the Mid-Morning Show Coffee Break!
How has a disruption in your life turned into an opportunity?
