What are some of the top questions that teens are asking today regarding God, the Bible, and living out of the gospel? Veteran youth pastor Mike McGarry says he sees the asking and answering of these questions as vital for growing up disciples of the faith. In this conversation, we'll hear a few of the common faith questions and why it's so important to not discount the questions teens ask but to take them seriously and answer thoughtfully and biblically.
How do we take what we learn from God's Word and live it out? Beginning this weekend, author and podcaster Trillia Newbell is joining the Moody Radio Saturday lineup with a new hour-long program, Living By Faith. In this new program, Trillia will open the Bible with special guests and inspire us with hopeful stories and tools for putting our knowledge into action. Trillia will join Ken and Deb Wednesday to tell us about this new program that kicks off this Saturday morning at 8 a.m. on Moody Radio Quad Cities!
