Today, as we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr Day and begin Inauguration week in 2021, two of my very favorite pastors have joined us. Dr. Tony Evans is here, discussing his new book U Turns, our current climate, the power of repentance, and pastoring in 2021. Then to walk us towards Wednesday, Pastor Scott Sauls pastors us in how to pray, how to process going into this week, and what God may be up to in us. His most recent release, A Gentle Answer, is the perfect book to read this week.  Need more stories in your ears?
