    Thoughts and Prayers

    Thoughts and Prayers

    This week we’re doing a deep-dive into faith healing in relation to negligent homicide and discussing several stories of when ‘thoughts & prayers’ just weren’t enough. We’ll start off with the arrest and ironic death of self-proclaimed healer Jack Coe, and then learn about a church in Oregon with a lot of buried secrets as well as several other stories of children whose parents did the unthinkable.
