    A Worthing Pier experience

    A Worthing Pier experience

    Joe has had an epiphany. Nick has been to a baptism. We talk about the need for radical acceptance in life, about the difference between themes and goals and how we need to remind ourselves why we went to church in the first place.

    Episode 184: ‘Sort it Ahhht!’

    It's our 2022 themes episode. We reflect on how our themes worked out last year, and look ahead to what we're going to be concentrating on in ZOZZ. (Or 2022 as some call it.) But we start something very serious: our very first Mid-faith Crisis Ministerial Scandal. Resign!

    Planning for spiritual success

    Planning for spiritual success

    Nick has some thoughts on the cricket and whether we can draw any spiritual lessons from sport. Can we plan for spiritual success? What would that even look like? How does our view of God affect our confidence in the spiritual life? Can we learn to play - or even pray - without fear? Also we are confronted with an ornithological-based heresy and we talk about the military symbolism of the Gadarene swine. Like you do.

    Episode 182: ‘In a Galilee far far away…’

    It's a Christmas Day episode. Nick has discovered cocktails, Joe has mastered snowballs. We discuss our suddenly altered Christmas plans, talk about what it means to bring good news to all people at Christmas, and we end with a quote from Gandalf. Or not. See you in Zozz!

    Episode 181: Reconnecting with Christmas

    We talk about Christmas and mid-faith. How do we approach the nativity stories? Are they historic accounts or symbolic tales? What is striking us about advent this year? Also, we talk theological tenancy agreements, the Devil's vegetable and whether some people will have a restricted view of the second coming. Oh, and Nick has an award. Of sorts.

    The Special Cuddles Episode

    The Special Cuddles Episode

    Yes, it's here. We have an interview with Becky Francis, a sex therapist and relationships counsellor. What is the relationship between sex and mid-faith crisis? How can counselling help? And why is it that something which God created is only really talked about by Christians in 'shameful' ways? It goes without saying that this episode contains some sexual content, so best not to listen to this with your parents.

Just love these guys!

As a Minister of Religion, and following the death of my husband, my Mid-Faith wasn’t so much a crisis, but a cataclysmic mess. After taking a year out of Ministry, moving to a new area, my faith was pretty non existent. I asked a colleague for some help, and she pointed towards the Mid-Faith Crisis.

Now I wouldn’t say my faith is back to what it was before my husband was killed, but Nick and Joe have certainly helped me at least find the track of faith. I love their openness, integrity and transparency as to how they view the Bible and the conversational way they share their knowledge and thoughts is right up my street!

So thank you guys, for at least helping me find the track and as I continue trying to discover who I am as a single person, and what my relationship might look like with God following my loss, I shall keep on listening to your musings, and one day - you never know - my faith might be somewhere near restored to what it used to be. I’ve now caught up with all the episodes and eagerly await each week for the next one.

Keep up the good work!

Wonderful!

I stumbled across Nick and Joe’s lovely lovely podcast the year before last and they have kept me company during a time of great change in my life circumstances. Their warmth, openness and sense of humour has been a big part of my tentative steps back towards a faith I thought I had lost a long time ago. Thank you and keep on keeping on Joe and Nick!
