Pastor Brian Bill takes God’s Word and applies it as we attempt to make sense of the recent shootings. He directs us to various scriptures for comfort and Biblical perspective into the violence in our world. How should we, as the church, respond to these tragedies and what needs to change in how we do life in community? Listen to hear about the only answer to the crisis of sin along with a charge to share that hope with those around us.
Gen Z is considered to be the least Christian generation in history, but they are not forgotten. We hear about a movement to reach Gen Z by Gen Z, the HowToLife Movement. Jordan Whitmer, (grandson of Ron Hutchcraft), joins Ken and Deb to talk about the challenges facing this generation and how these challenges also provide incredible gospel opportunities. Jordan also tells us about the new GenZ Today podcast that engages young Christians with conversations on living and leading for Jesus.
