Episode 29: The Landscape of the Heart

In which we have an interview with Roy Searle, one of the founders of the Northumbria Community. Roy talks about the importance of space, the need to escape the ‘consumer-based faith’, about ‘living life with the questions’ and how our thirst for authenticity can lead us deeper with God. We also hear from listeners with their book recommendations (see below) and Joe engages in the little known sport of hermeneutical gymnastics. Warning: contains the words ‘pith’ and ‘spong’.

    Episode 29 was very helpful. I related to busyness. You almost feel guilty stopping activity to be still and develop you relationship with God. Really great podcasts. Help me to laugh and not take myself too seriously. Hope to meet you both someday when I’ve got time????
