We also speak with Pastor Jim Shirbroun of Grace United Methodist Church in Morningside about preparing for the coming of Christ in the season of Advent.   

Also, we speak with Rabbi Guy Greene of Congregation Beth Schalom of Sioux City about Hanukkah.  The holiday begins at sundown on Sunday, December 22nd.

An election watchdog is filing a complaint alleging than an outside group founded by top political aides to Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst violated campaign finance law in its efforts improve the Republican's chance of reelection next year.  

It comes after The Associated Press reported earlier this month that Ernst's work with the political nonprofit Iowa Values to raise money and build an electoral “firewall" potentially violated campaign finance and tax law.
