Kresta in the Afternoon – April 23, 2021 – Hour 1

We open up the phone lines, discussing race, police and being “Slow to Speak.”

Direct to My Desk: Slow to Speak

We are taking your calls! The Scriptures command us to be quick to listen and slow to speak – advice that’s often been forgotten in the wake of our racial discussions. How can Christians heed this advice? Have you ever been in a situation where someone spoke without listening?
