Plain Talking – Episode 6
In this latest Plain Talking podcast, we listen to Henrietta Blyth, CEO of Open Doors UK & Ireland, who tells us about the Open Doors World Watch List 2022 – their annual ranking of the 50 countries where Christians face the most extreme persecution for following Jesus, and how the situation is getting worse.
As tens of millions of people around the world tune in to watch the Beijing Winter Olympics, we hear from Andrew Boyd, a spokesman for Release International which serves persecuted Christians around the world. Andrew talks about how China stands accused of ‘sportswashing’ its human rights abuses to try to gain legitimacy.
Finally, retired Baptist Minister Graham Watts concludes our podcast by considering how we all experience bad times – and uses a football analogy to help us gain perspective.
