Theme: Near Miss

May’s Sunday show brought us the topic of Near Miss. We’ve all had them.
But do you dare talk about them? These five storytellers did!

Bill Cernansky: sometimes a hit *is* a miss
No matter how lucky you think you may be, you’re not as lucky as this one baby. Spoiler alert: it all turns out OK.

Callie Vanderwiele: first time flying (complete with firemen)
Listen to this and you may never fly again.

Jay Flewelling: that’s just Jay
Jay addresses smoking, “things that don’t make sense, like the Bible,” church camp, and a few too many laxatives.

Starr Ahrens: adventures in show choiring
Show choir road trip! ’nuff said.

Kelley Tyner McAllister: attempts at extroversion
How Kelley learned to talk to other people. Trust us, it almost didn’t happen.


Theme: Curveball
