Have you ever been walking down the stairs and thought there was one more stair to go? But there wasn’t – so your foot connected with the floor a few inches sooner than you were expecting? And it made a little slapping noise and for just a moment you lost your balance, but then you were okay.

Or have you ever been going up the stairs and thought there was an extra step and suddenly found yourself negotiating nothing but air where you thought should have been a place for your foot to land?

About the time listeners are picking up children from school or heading home from a long workday, many people play the game “Bible or Not” with WGTS' afternoon hosts Johnny and Stacey Stone.

It’s simple enough. Johnny gives three phrases and the participant (along with their family members in the car) can guess if the phrase is from the Bible or from another source, like a quote from a famous person. Stacey or another host can help you with a “lifeline” if you’re not sure, which always makes it exciting. Get all three correct, and you win!

En 2017, Emil Peeler, el pastor principal de la iglesia Capitol Hill de la Conferencia Allegheny East en Washington, D.C., tuvo la visión de abrir un centro que ayudaría a abordar los problemas de salud mental que afectan las vidas de las personas en los vecindarios del área de D.C. "En muchas áreas de mi vida, como pastor, profesor, líder de la comunidad, incluso como amigo, veía personas en todos los niveles de ingresos que se veían afectadas por problemas de salud mental", dice Peeler. “La necesidad de terapia parecía mayor que los servicios disponibles, y aprendí que muy pocos servicios integraban una perspectiva cristiana. Dios puso en mi corazón que necesitaba hacer algo ".
