Chronic deprivation can diminish psychological bandwidth, harming cognitive capacity and decision making. Preoccupation with so many difficult decisions can affect cognitive functioning. Christ offers a spirit of abundance that raises awareness of those in scarcity and a willingness to provide assistance wherever need presents itself.

We’re so delighted you’ve found AT1. From our inspirational message, to our thought-provoking AT Trending News, to our melodic moment of music, we trust this short program adds value to your week, and is becoming your first choice for a Friday night vespers. Here are our presenters this week:

Today’s Host – Nancy Myers

Presenter – Kara Johnsson

Trending News – Jammie Karlman

Musician – The George Band

Discussion Questions:

1. Who comes to mind when you think of a life of scarcity? How is your heart being prompted by the One who has been generous with you to help that person or family?

2. Sexual abuse is a real problem for the church as there seems to be a culture of secrecy about it. What are some real, tangible steps you can take now to help those who have been harmed and prevent harm from happening to others?
