The news keeps getting darker. The world seems to keep getting bleaker. But Solomon wrote, “the sun also ariseth.” The Sun Also Rises transmits the true, the bright and the beautiful, glints of light in a world going black. Each week, host Jeremiah Jacques brings you stories of refreshing accomplishment, intriguing science and inspiring lives—glimmers of hope that hint at a better world to come.

Being generous does not usually come naturally. Giving to others can be difficult. And it can be especially hard when you yourself do not have much. This week’s episode brings you three stories that put the spotlight on people who have given to others in inspiring ways—even though they themselves didn’t have a lot.

Need to travel the 20 miles from Gehlaur village to Gaya, India? All you need to do is take Dashrath Manjhi Road, which cuts straight through the steep, rocky hills. It wasn’t the government or a relief organization that built this road. It was one man, and he did it by hand. Host Jeremiah Jacques brings you this man's astounding story, a word on the power of daily effort, and a personal note about kicking a bad habit.
