Sometimes losing something can give us a much-needed reset and can present us with a refreshing gift. Hurricane Nate disrupted life and our normal Sunday Services this past weekend, so Rev. Gibson decided to try something different for this show. Instead of discussing the weekly lessons and sermon, Rev. Gibson shares a meditation with Johnny and you, the listener. Very often when we miss Sunday Service we feel that something is “just off.” We hope this episode fills your spiritual gap and shows you a different perspective of missing Church.
