Hour 1: Love; A Gift of Advent: A Prepared Devotional Thought with Doug Rowland

Love is defined in many ways in our culture and in our lives, but what is it really? How does the answer relate to Christmas and how does it impact how we live 24-7? Listen as Pastor Doug Rowland of Rock Island Bible Church provides this lesson on love with Ken and Deb in the Morning.


Hour 2: Disaster Relief: A Conversation with Todd Taylor from Samaritan's Purse

A trail of destruction rolled across six states as tornados ripped through the midwest this past Friday. Whole communities have been flattened and the loss of life has been overwhelming. Samaritan's Purse is on the ground helping to assess needs and work with local communities on the best ways to respond to the hurting. Samaritan's Purse U.S. Disaster Relief Manager Todd Taylor speaks with us from Kentucky to share ways that we can join with them in helping those whose lives have been turned upside down because of this recent disaster.
