Recently I was listening to an interview with Tim Keller on Focus on the Family – Tim wrote a book that I frequently recommend called Walking with God through Pain and Suffering. Tim referenced Satan’s question to God, “Does Job serve God for nothing?” From that, he drew a remarkable conclusion: “We have to come…

Our daily radio program called “Joni and Friends” has been on the air for over 32 years. That’s a lot of time in the recording studio!

Light and Color 

September 26, 2014 | Comments Off on Light and Color
