NBA Opening Night w/ the Miami Heat & LA Lakers & NBA News w/ Matt Barnes & NY Showdown: 10/31, Vol. 260, 1st Edt'n


            Someone asked the question. Why do we sing? When we lift our hands to Jesus, what do we really mean? Someone may be wondering, when we sing our song, at times we maybe crying and nothing is even wrong!  Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema on Gospel Radio better than when you heard it yesterday! I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  It’s Game Time!
