This conversation asks another big question – what is human nature really like? Dan Weatherall and Stephen Blake, a professional counsellor, explore this topic and find that, although the Bible starts with the ideal of humans reflecting God’s image, it more often paints a picture of struggle and failure. Why is that and can anything be done about it?
If God exists, wouldn't he have made his presence known beyond doubt to everyone? And yet, so many people do not believe. Here we explore divine hiddenness and find a logical and rational story of meaningful relationships rather than a God of coercion and manipulation.

In fact, that’s exactly the point of parables.
The title of this episode is a question from one of our listeners.

How we answer that gets to the heart of what the Gospels are for and how we read them. Listen in and see what you think!
Training to keep fit is needed daily. And it’s great when you get into a routine and rhythm because it helps to keep up the exercise regime. The more you do, the better it is and the easier it becomes.
