Join the Reverend Jeff Smith for a split-ticket program as he celebrates two holidays at once (one well-known and one lesser-so)! For starters, it's American Eagle Day, coming up on June 20th, so the first half of the program will focus on why we have such a day as well as the history of the bald eagle as the symbol of American democracy. Then it's on to June 17th which is (of course) Father's Day! The Rev has some ideas on how to truly honor your father on his day, and then some suggestions on how to do the same if your father's no longer around. Finally, he'll speak about how his memories of his father seem to dictate a clear course of action in dealing with a currently upsetting topic!
