Has “the church” become a barrier to faith? Is what our culture knows as “the church” even remotely close to Christ’s presence in the World? Does the “the church” give a distorted view of Jesus? Without abandoning love for the church or forgetting the biblical mandate for its presence in the world, Rubel Shelly explores a model for thinking of church in terms that are more personal and less institutional. During his conversation with Lynne, find out what he means when he says, I Knew Jesus Before He Was a Christian…And I Liked Him Better Then.(Leafwood, ISBN# 978-0-89112-271-5)

Who gets cancer? One out of two men and one out of three women. While it seems no respecter of age or region, it’s not as random as you think. Of the 571,950 cancer-related deaths in 2011, 1/3 could have been prevented if no one smoked. Another 1/3 could have been prevented with weight loss, exercise and healthier eating. And on today’s Mid-Morning, Dr. Ann Kulze and Kerri Zurbuch join Lynne to discuss the healthy living choices we can make now to help prevent cancer in the future. From diet to exercise to daily habits and more, you won’t want to miss this advice!

Her book Flourish (Bethany House, ISBN# 978-0-7642-0808-9) is the solution: a practical guide to tending the soul. During her visit to Mid-Morning she shares effective strategies for cultivating a fulfilled life!
