Plain Talking – Episode 8
In this latest episode of Plain Talking, we focus on the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Gethin talks with Catherine Butcher, author of Our Faithful Queen: 70 Years of Faith and Service, and helps us gain an insight on the importance and significance the Queen’s Christian faith has had on her life as our Monarch. (You can read more about this in the current issue of The Plain Truth magazine.)
We then turn our attention to the recently published Good News Bible – Family Edition. Published by the Bible Society in partnership with Youth For Christ and a host of other family focused organisations, we hear from Jack Imbert-Terry who explains why this resource-packed edition, complete with space inside for writing, doodling and drawing and accompanied by 26 online videos, has been created with the aim of putting the Bible back at the centre of family life.
Finally, we hear from Rev Peter Slee, retired Head of Chaplaincy South at Methodist Homes (MHA). Peter looks back at the events after Christ’s crucifixion, highlighting how Mary mistakes Jesus for the gardener, and relates the encounter of the two men walking together on the road to Emmaus, and asks: ‘Do you recognise Jesus’?
