Today on Perry and Shawna Mornings we look at how we can move forward through this season of great hurt, fear, and division in America. First Grand Rapids native and comedian Michael Jr. talks about that terrifying moment in 1991 in Grand Rapids when a police officer unjustly put a gun to his head and cocked the trigger. God diffused his anger and healed his heart in the moments right after that. It’s a life lesson showing us the bridge ahead out of anger and hurt.
Then find out why Shawna’s then 4 year old daughter Bryn said: “If she can do it, so can I!” It’s a conversation about how listening to God’s word and then obeying it, brings transformation to our world—teachers with students, parents with children, leaders with churches. You and me, listening, obeying and bringing new life!
Next Scott shares about a trip he’s looking forward to later this year. If you want to get a sense of the love and fun we share on the morning team, this is a great moment to check out. And finally, comedian Michael Jr. has what we think is a brilliant idea for moving ahead in America: Off duty police officers breaking bread with black families. Check it out and see what you think.
