Join the Reverend Jeff Smith a celebration of a true man of peace. While he was actually born on January 15th of 1929, this year on January 20th, we celebrate the birth, life, message, and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. An outspoken advocate of racial equality, social justice, and non-violent protest, Dr. King's dream of an America free of racial strife and tension seems to have faded in recent years, so it's necessary that we remember the journal of this incredible man and everything that he stood for. That's what we'll be doing today.

Join the Reverend Jeff Smith for an exploration of the rather nebulous but sought-after experience known as joy! January 8th is Joy Germ Day, dedicated to the idea that joy is contagious and, unlike most contagious things, should be spread to as many people as possible! The Reverend will explain the origins of the day itself, discuss why joy doesn't just belong to one religion, what the difference is between joy and happiness, how most people actually experience more joy as they get older, and he'll offer his own advice on dealing with joy in your day-to-day personal life.
