Take2 - 05/28/2019 - Is Your City Dying?

Is Your City Dying?
A recent disturbing documentary titled, “Seattle Is Dying,” is a jaw-dropping expose of many cultural and societal ills that have nearly turned The Emerald City, long considered to be one of the most gorgeous places in the United States, into a gun-, drug- and filth-infested town. Not that there are no longer any beautiful and serene neighborhoods in and around the greater Seattle area. But the downtown core in particular has become like a desolate wasteland you’d perhaps see in a sci-fi movie. Seattle is not alone in its descent into the abyss. Many other parts of the country have either preceded Seattle, or are not far behind, in seeing this play out for them. The tent cities, the crime, the hypodermic needles, the empty liquor bottles, the weapons…the list goes on and on. And, to listen to some current and former law enforcement officers in Seattle, they are more often than not told not to enforce the laws regarding these circumstances. So, the question for you on Tuesday is, have you watched your beloved city go downhill in some very unfortunate ways? Do you feel helpless to do anything about it. Maybe your city is not dying in this fashion, but actually thriving today. Let’s have a conversation about this, since it touches upon so many areas of our faith.

Take2 - 05/24/2019 - Hailing God's Healing

Hailing Your Healing
This week is moving along quickly. On Thursday’s show, we want to hear from you if you have received God’s mercy in the form of a healing. Everyone has illnesses, injuries, etc. Some people must suffer a very long time, often without ever being healed. But for many, God’s grace, together with modern medicine and treatments, bring healing with them. A small number of individuals are healed without any rational explanation. If you fit into any of these categories, and you want to tell the world how grateful you are to have been healed, then we definitely invite you to call and share your take!

The Devastating Effects of the Opioid Epidemic
The Effects of the Opioid Epidemic: Part II
Thursday, on part two of Wednesdays topic, Jerry and Debbie will welcome your personal experiences of the devastating opioid problem facing our country, as well as many other countries around the world. What very often starts out as simply a matter of someone taking medications for an injury or an illness, sadly, turns into an addiction that can wreak havoc on the abuser, as well as his or her family and friends. Tragically, many lose their lives every year as a result of this disaster. Rather than delving deeply into facts and statistics about the epidemic, we want to hear if you have been personally impacted by it. This is sure to be a poignant and impactful conversation.

Take2 - 05/21/2019 - Unfulfilled?

Life is so interesting. There are times in life when it feels so exciting and productive. Other times, life can feel empty and somewhat meaningless. There comes a time when we start realizing that there is so much more in life we could and should be doing. We want to inspire others and use our God-given gifts to build up the kingdom. But life moves quickly and the routines of life tend to take over. If this is you, and you are feeling unfulfilled at some level, call us. 1-833-288-3986. Or if your life is extremely fulfilling each and every day, we want to hear from you as well.
