to her that "higher than human thoughts... is God's ideal for his
children; Godliness, Godlikeness is the goal to be reached," and

King is the gospel announcer for WYCA 102.3 radio's program and
host of the Monday-Friday Rejoice, and now has captured the Stellar

will air in Chicago Saturday, Jan. 31 on WGN9 at 7 p.m.
