  • Fathers

    “My father seemed to know everything when I was little. As a teenager it’s amazing how much he’d forgotten! But then as an adult I realized he wasn’t bullet proof or out of touch. He was real. He had fears, failings and strengths just like me. I’m glad he was my dad.”

    What was your father like when you grew up? Is being a parent what you thought it would be like? Do you sometimes wonder whether you’re doing a good enough job? Click here to listen to Rob Schubert this week as he reflects on his experience of fatherhood, and on God, who reveals himself to us as a loving dad.

  • Families Are Like Fudge

    “Families are like fudge. Mostly sweet, with a few nuts!”
    All families struggle with trying to balance individual needs and the family as a whole. That can lead to uncomfortable moments where things aren’t always sweet. Click here to listen as Rob Schubert points out that even in the Bible there are no perfect families. Yet God does great things through them. Perhaps God can work in your family too.

  • All Alone

    “I think that all of us move into and out of loneliness. Some people tragically find themselves all alone. None of us were meant for that.”

    Loneliness isn’t a feeling restricted to people who are single. It can affect anyone. Click here to listen to James Winderlich talk about how we can feel alone and unconnected, even when we’re surrounded by people.

  • Loneliness

    Do you sometimes look at the people around you and think “I wish I could be like them?” It can cause us to focus on what we don’t do, and don’t have, and that can make us feel lonely, even if we’re surrounded by people who love us. Click here to listen this week as John Henderson talks about loneliness, and that it’s cure lies outside ourselves.

  • Gone Home

    “We were in this little plane, caught in a thunderstorm and the pilot said – I’m sorry guys, we’re not going make it, we’re gonna go down - and man, that makes you think about living and dying!”

    Death is not a topic that we tend to talk about over a BBQ. Most of us don’t talk about death until it’s on our doorstep. Click here to listen as Celia and Richard talk with Jonathan Krause about why we don’t need to be afraid to have those conversations.
