On this day we remember the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, we invite you to listen to this best-of conversation with Dr. John Perkins on the subject of the gospel and race. Dr. Perkins says that although some may suggest that we can be reconciled to God without being reconciled to our brothers and sisters in Christ, scripture teaches unity and reconciliation among the whole body of Christ is part of the gospel message that we should not and cannot ignore. Listen to this charge to love, forgive, and be agents of healing with Ken and Deb in the Morning.
What word appears 550 times in the Bible, but is rarely the topic of Bible studies or sermons? We bring this word into focus as we look deeper into what it means to experience God’s peace. Dr. Jeremiah Johnston joins us for a conversation on this constant theme in Jesus’ teaching that will help guide us into a peace that passes all understanding.
