Praying for the President. If it’s a question the answer is yes

Some days God has just the right person on at just the right time. There was no way to know when Dr. David Swanson, pastor of First Presbyterian Church Orlando, was scheduled to be on with Carmen today that 1) we would be responding to another mass shooting and 2) the President would have shown up at a church yesterday and received public pastoral prayers. But God used David Swanson in Orlando following the Pulse nightclub shooting and in 2017 to pray at an interfaith event following the inauguration – making him the perfect conversation partner on this day! Only God could do that.

Carmen then talks with David Aikman about his unique perspective on the 75th anniversary of D-Day, which is also his 75th birthday – and the role his father played in D-Day planning. Aikman was also in Tiananmen Square 30 years ago when that massacre took place. He recalls those events to Carmen in this podcast.
