Do you desire a slower pace and time to meditate and contemplate this Advent season? The Bible to Life website has a plethora of short readings for the season that can help focus thoughts and hearts on the true reason for the season. Chris Martin will stop by Ken and Deb to talk about the many free resources that are only a click away on Thursday's Ken and Deb in the Morning!
How can we best support orphaned and vulnerable children in our country and around the world? This is the season when people donate gifts and make up boxes for children to bless them at Christmas, but what can we do to love them and seek their good the rest of the year? Jedd Medefind with Christian Alliance for Orphans will be with Ken and Deb Thursday to talk about the process of adoption, some of the misconceptions, and the crucial role of the Church in caring for children.
