Episode 24 - Still a Good God

Episode 24 - Still a Good God

February 12, 2021

The last time we read these passages the world was a completely different place.

So what has changed? How can we talk about the goodness of God in a time of pandemic - we’re far from out of the woods - and over the last year we have seen loss, trauma, suffering experienced across the globe.

So how do these verses help us understand God’s goodness when there is so much to mourn? How do we deepen the response beyond the superficial?

Introducing: The Advent

Introducing: The Advent

December 4, 2020

We wanted to let you know about The Advent - a new podcast series that takes you on a journey through the Bible 2020 readings from our next theme - The Incarnation...

Let’s have a tale whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. A tale of the mystery from which true godliness springs. A tale that is in one measure familiar but, in another, strange and fresh. Because everyone needs a story about light, and presence and hope in these dark days.

The Advent is a Bible 2020 production brought to you by the Scottish Bible Society. Written and directed by Fiona Stewart. Performed by Fiona Stewart and Cameron Potts. Engineered and produced by Alasdair Wallace.
