    Are you human?

    Are you human?

    Episode 1. Jo and Peter explore the meeting place between what our culture talks about in terms of being human and what the Bible says. When we talk about ideas of freedom, identity, purpose, meaning, do we mean the same thing? Jesus offers life in the fullness, Paul wrote it is for freedom that we have been set free. Does the picture our culture paints of what freedom looks like, match the bigger story outlined in the Bible?

    Love Island, dating apps and desire

    Episode 2. How does Love Island or dating apps form, reform and deform our desires? What impact does that have on our understanding of, and access to, freedom? We are storied creatures, stories shape who we are. The story of the world appears to be one of individual freedom - I get to be who I want to be and date or sleep with whom ever I like - that is being free. But freedom isn’t about choice, it isn’t even about control. The biblical story shows us that ultimately freedom is rooted in a life lived in relationship with God.

Who even are we?

After the first 2 episodes, I knew I was going to enjoy this. The thoughts, the questions, the chat- but best of all the Truth found in this podcast really cuts past all the other noise and tells us what to expect when seeing today's society through the eyes of Scripture. Love it!

Great content, prophetic insight, fun camaraderie. 5 stars.

Combining incisive thought, topical content, prophetic insight and a lot of fun, Being Human seeks to realign and reorder some of our grossly misdirected thinking. Peter and Jo comment on cultural trends, unmasking fake news and the insidious control of popular culture, instead rooting us back in the great story, the whole narrative of the God story. It is public truth. By doing this, they take us back to the most fundamental questions we all seek to answer: who are we, what does it mean to be human, who is God, what is wrong in our world and what (or who) is the solution? Tune in to listen. Also can’t beat a bit of N.Irish humour.
