Today on “Kresta in the Afternoon” – Apr 15
Talking about the “things that matter most” on April 15
4:00 – “Heaven is For Real”
Heaven Is for Real is the true story of a four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who experienced heaven during emergency surgery. He talked about looking down to see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. In heaven, Colton met his miscarried sister whom no one ever had told him about and his great-grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born. He shared impossible-to-know details about each. It’s now a major film in theaters everywhere April 16. We talk to the real life Todd Burpo, Colton’s father.
4:20 – What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Stronger America
Solutions … not theories. Political progress … not political posturing. Faith…not unbelief. Instead of the constant jockeying for political advantage, columnist Cal Thomas is here to focus on what promotes the general welfare, regardless of which party or ideology gets the credit. Thomas probes and provides answers to questions like, Why must we constantly fight the same battles over and over? Why don’t we consult the past and use common sense in order to see that what others discovered long ago still works today? And why does present-day Washington too often look like the film Groundhog Day, with our elected officials waking up each day only to repeat identical talking points from previous days, months, and years? Cal joins us.
5:00 – Exploring the Creed with Bach
As we continue to progress through Lent, Al and Tom Loewe, co-host of “Notes From Above” which explores the intersection of faith and music, look at the Creed, using the music of the Bach Mass in B minor as a guide.
