Hour 1: A Field Guide for Genuine Community: A Conversation with Ben Connelly

What makes for genuine community? Does attending a church mean that you’ll experience it? The church is meant to be the family of God but often it feels like an assembly of strangers. Ben Connelly says that in order to have a truly Christian community there need to be certain intentional practices that allow for deeper connections between brothers and sisters in Christ. We talk about some of those intentional practices as we rethink community with church planter Ben Connelly on Ken and Deb in the Morning.


Hour 2: A Healthy Summer: A Conversation with Dr. Lars Thestrup

Now that we are past the halfway point of 2021, how are you doing with your goal to live a healthier lifestyle? Dr. Lars Thestrup, author of Eat, Sleep, Move, Breathe joined Ken and Deb to give us a mid-year pep talk on those habits that make for healthy minds and bodies. Don't miss this mid-year review of what we can be doing each day to maximize our health so we will have the strength to serve God and others.
