After the mass shooting at the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, the surviving victims needed a place to resume learning…and a place to try to recover. Nearby Brentwood Hills Church of Christ opened its building and its hearts to them. Ministers Amy Bowman and Jonathan Seamon talk about what it's like to love neighbors who are grieving and recovering from unimaginable horror.

'The Blind' is a motion picture that reveals the true story of Phil and Miss Kay Robertson and their family of 'Duck Dynasty' fame. Their oldest son, Al Robertson, talks about what it was like to make the movie and what his family hopes it will accomplish for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the kingdom of God.

Retirees Chris and Connie Stinnett call in from their RV, where they live full-time and travel the country. They tell the stories of showing up unannounced at more than 13 Church of Christ congregations in ten states.
