    Ep 57: Trinity Weirdness

    Chris and Pete try to ask about this trinity thing. What is it? It’s not named in the bible but what have we made of it? It’s not a neat package but can it be understood? What gets lost when we get it wrong?

  • Ep 56: The Thomas Problem

    Ep 56: The Thomas Problem

    Was ‘Doubting Thomas’ at the dentist? Why did he doubt? Why does it matter? Chris and Pete try to find the right questions, like why is this story even in the bible? And what happens if we choose NOT to believe? Is that a problem?

  • Ep 55: It’s So Tempting

    Ep 55: It’s So Tempting

    We think we know about the things we shouldn’t do, but are there good temptations? Or bad ones? Chris and Pete try to look but not see and ask questions about temptation. Is it our own fault? Is it so bad?

  • Ep 54: Childhood Faith

    Ep 54: Childhood Faith

    Is it possible to go back to the faith of your childhood? Is it wise? And how do we be children… and mature people of faith… all at the same time? Join Chris and Pete as they get completely baffled and go camping instead.

  • Ep 53: What Doesn’t Science Get?

    Ep 53: What Doesn’t Science Get?

    Chris and Pete get themselves completely confused by asking one simple question. How can we understand what we can’t perceive? They speak of Gremlins and The Matrix and ask if science has the answers. And if it doesn’t, where are the answers? Take a deep breath and join them looking for things we don’t get.

  • Ep 52: Are You a Living Thing?

    Ep 52: Are You a Living Thing?

    Christians bang on about ‘The living word’. Have we made it into something magical? Is it a mystical force? Is there MORE power in bible words or Jesus sayings? Chris and Pete ask some tough questions like, maybe it’s actually really simple and can we find a more effective way to live with the word?

  • Ep 51: War Stories

    Ep 51: War Stories

    Is the Israel issue intractable? Chris and Pete take it on, head on because the problems in the middle east seem to have a distinctly religious flavour. Should they? Is this a war that God cares MORE about than others? How can we think, biblically, about the mess and what should I do about it?

  • Ep 50: Is God Uncomfortable?

    Ep 50: Is God Uncomfortable?

    Does life suck? How come we can’t get comfortable? And is it something God does? Deliberately? Or is discomfort OUR fault? Are you planning a comfortable retirement, or a comfortable life? Chris and Pete get uncomfortable asking this and more.

  • Ep 49: We Are Dull and Boring

    Ep 49: We Are Dull and Boring

    Chris and Pete read from the late Mike Yaconelli and find out why he thinks churches should be frightening, challenging and not comfortable. But who is responsible? Is it us in the seats that make the place dull and boring? Can we stop playing safe? Or does playing it safe mean taking risks with each…

  • Ep 48: What’s With All The Symbolism?

    Ep 48: What’s With All The Symbolism?

    Chris and Pete are often baffled by the imagery and symbolism in the bible. Why can’t it just be a simple story? They talk Dragons, stop signs and science trying to find the meaning behind the myths. What happens when A plus B doesn’t equal C? Can symbols tear us apart? And if we don’t…
