    Wonderful inspirational message today on forgiveness, and what it really means. Special music was glorious! Please please have Kelly and Todd sing together more often. Their talent soared today. I felt I was in a concert hall.

    I refer to Psalm 46 at this time as well, the poetry ‘even if the mountains should fall into the sea”.

    But please, ask the soloists to hold the mic so that we can see them sing the words. We don’t hold a soup spoon in front of our mouth as we speak, and we would consider it rude.

    I continue to wonder why it is that so many ministries don’t include the option to share via email. I will never, ever use social media, and am frustrated that I am left out of using email, but everything else is “essential” such as twitter or Facebook. Why is that? I could forward this program to 30 people and yet I cannot. Even missionary friends overseas. They might not always access your web site, but I always try.

    If I am missing something please let me know.

    Also I have given away over the years several of your little inspirational gifts, the key chain HOPE, and dIY Build your Faith and I don’t understand why such items are not offered now. Few of us have the space for a huge eagle statue, or the taste, nor the budget, but the small things that can be carried or shared with someone who is struggling, are not available. And why is that?

    I have watched your program for years and years, as did my parents, every Sunday. Indeed, watching it for two years helped me come back to church many years ago. Thank you for your faithfulness and encouragement, and especially the beautiful uplifting music.

    Please what author or book was being referenced by Pastor Schuller when speaking about what forgiveness is not during the service aired on Saturday April 24th?
