Dr. Jim Coakley joins Ken and Deb Friday to color our Bible study world. Discover the significance of colors in the different accounts of scripture such as the red and white in the story of Jacob or the significance of the coat of many colors. It’s another fascinating look at a detail in scripture that could be overlooked, but when understood, will deepen our understanding of the text.
There’s one Quad Cities tradition that’s making a comeback this holiday season and we’re going to talk about it Friday on Ken and Deb in the Morning. Join us as we visit with Jeremiah Gomez from Heritage Church about a nostalgic invitation to celebrate the Christmas season in the midst of the COVID challenges. Discover as well how you can bring Christmas cheer to children and families in the Quad Cities this year.
