Episode 137: Why We Need 'Thoughts and Prayers'

Monday, March 27 saw the city of Nashville, TN and our nation realize yet another school shooting that claimed six lives including three 9-year-olds. In the wake of such a horrible tragedy, does prayer matter? Can it make a difference or is it a way to forestall needed change?

In this solo episode, Dennis talks about why prayer must be a response to issues like school shootings and the wider issue of gun violence.
