As 93 percent of churches in the United States are holding online-only services due to the coronavirus outbreak, the majority of the congregations will celebrate Easter digitally, according to two studies.
Dr. John Dyer from Dallas Theological Seminary joins us to chat about technology and the way we're "doing church." Plus, Moody Theological Seminary's Dr. Bill Thrasher helps us with, Putting God Back in the Holidays, as we celebrate Easter with purpose.
