Forgiveness is Powerful - Episode 37
Last week, an event that was very likely to create additional racial tensions, regardless of the decision or direction of the jury, took a surprisingly redemptive turn.

However, there are a few in our state who are still seeking to fuel the animosity.

It was incredibly disappointing to see.
This is what we cover on today’s podcast episode.
