Today was Praise Thursday on the Afternoon Drive. We kicked off a new series where we pick a song that we play on the station, and then dive into the story behind and meaning of the song.

Today’s focus was on Forgiveness by Matthew West. I shared the letter that inspired Matthew to write this song, plus his response on the power of forgiveness, both of which you can find here.

If you head over here, you can find an interview with Matthew West where he shared some more of the story and some verses that inspired the song.

The reason I chose Forgiveness for this week is because today is Kiss and Make Up Day, a holiday encouraging forgiveness. You can read all about that here.

Our Word of the Day was stultify (stuhl-tuh-fahy), a verb meaning to make, or cause to appear, foolish or ridiculous. You can read more on that here.

Have a great Thursday evening!
