Plain Talking – Episode 7
In this episode Gethin chats with Marie van der Zyl, President of The Board of Deputies of British Jews, on the work of her organisation, and also gets her perspective on the crisis taking place in Ukraine at this time.
Then we highlight the harrowing story of Christian Pastor Raymond Koh who was abducted in Malaysia more than five years ago while driving to a friend’s house. We hear from his wife Susanna, who received an International Women of Courage (IWOC) Award in 2020 for her work on behalf of members of other religious minorities who had disappeared in Malaysia.
Finally, Gethin reflects on Lent and its significance for us, referring to the Bible account of Jesus in the wilderness and – as we witness the plight of Ukraine – the reality of pain, suffering and despair.
