Almost 60 Americans will pass away during the brief 15 minutes conversation we have with Pastor Brian Bill. This number is sobering and will at some time be very personal. There is a story in the Bible that addresses the grief that so many are feeling right now, including Pastor Brian. He uncovers truths from Jesus concerning grief and offers two anchors to hold on to as we grieve.
Many do not realize that although the Bible has many chapters with many stories to tell, there is really “one story” that it is telling. Pastor Colin Smith from Unlocking the Bible joins Ken and Deb to tell us about an upcoming free event where he reviews Genesis to Revelation, unveiling the “one story”, and how the Bible addresses our modern-day struggles. Listen for a preview of the exclusive Open the Bible event and how you can register for the teaching during this visit with Colin Smith on Ken and Deb in the Morning.
