Prayer to be discussed

The program will include a filmed interview with former golf pro Wally Armstrong, who found an unusual way to make his prayers more meaningful.

Armstrong, who is also the author of "The Mulligan: A Parable of Second Chances," said, "There's a new level. I was a believer in prayer but I found there's a big difference between believing something is true, and experiencing something is real."
