What do you do to make it through hard times? Rock Island Pastor Doug Rowland encourages us to pray through hard times. Pastor Doug will take us to the book of Psalms to teach us how to best express our hurt, pain, disappointment, frustration, or discontent to the Lord. It’s help for the hurts on Tuesday’s prepared devotional thought with Ken and Deb in the Morning.
Are you avoiding certain conversations at church for fear of how your viewpoint would be received? Would you like to share your thoughts, but you don’t the best way to do so? As we consider tough conversations, Jason Jimenez from Summit Ministries joins us to offer three simple steps that will help you become a more conversant Christian. Jason says that, as believers, we can disagree and that shouldn’t make us mortal enemies. It’s a helpful talk on how to ask the right questions and build rapport even when we don’t agree on Ken and Deb in the Morning.
