Encouraging

Great to hear so many examples of Christians living out their faith inside our political system and putting ‘Kingdom before Tribe’. Helps me to be better at praying for people in authority!

Honest

Really appreciate the honesty of these podcasts. The intro is brilliant, acknowledging the muckiness of all of life. But that’s backed by insightful comments on the news (really great on the H&M interview) and informative and moving interviews. I always look forward to the next one

The Great Gobbo ,

Brilliant!

Such an encouraging podcast hearing a Christian reflection on the politics of the week, with warm interviews and thoughtful prayer. Keep up the good work Tim!
