Church and school security expert Dwayne Harris (Full Armor Church) talks about the most effective (and surprising) way to keep congregations safe. The growth of the Texas Bible Bowl reflects how young people are more interested than ever to know about Jesus. Audrey Jackson reports and we interview Texas Bible Bowl organizer Lisa Kirkwood and elementary division contender Melanie Mitchell. A cappella congregational "shape note" singing is not only the Church of Christ heritage, it has been named the "oldest indigenous musical tradition" in America by the National Music Council. The 140th Annual "Big Singing" in Benton, Kentucky, celebrates and preserves this musical heritage. We interview shape note singing expert and "Big Singing" organizer Gene Gilliland.
