healing and forgiveness

Whenever you see a list of the ten best presidents in U.S. history, Abraham Lincoln almost always comes in at number one. And with exception to the Gettysburg Address, his most important speech may have been his second inaugural address. Joining us today to talk about this is Diana Schaub (loyola.edu), Professor of Political Science at Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore. She examines Lincoln's humility, his desire to move away from vengeance once the war was over, his use of religion in the speech, and his need to unite a divided country. She and John also look at the spirit of 1776 versus the hopelessness of 1619.

On this day before Thanksgiving, John flies solo and takes a look at the truth underlying the concept of thanksgiving. All of us experience times of trouble and sometimes it may seem like an impossible mission to come out from under that trouble. But God is with us and chances are He has blessed your life in many ways. John gives examples of both trouble and blessing from his own life. So please don't let vaccine disagreements or political differences come between you and family and friends this Thanksgiving. We can be thankful to God no matter what trouble we're experiencing because nothing is impossible with God.

Happy Thanksgiving, folks. May it be a safe and blessed holiday for you. We will be off tomorrow, but back in the Steel on Steel saddle on Friday.
