I listen to this podcast every week. It gives an alternative, Christian, view on the weeks news. It includes music and clips. Very stimulating & thought provoking!
Listen to this with my dad and brother every week. Really interesting and nice not to see everything from the media’s lens, nice to know that there are other believers out there and that I’m not the only one with these views on what will soon be ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ+ it’s really opened my eyes thank you
Most informative global news podcast
A Christian world view !! Most certainly an insightful, intelligent and illuminating podcast. Music’s no bad either. Just love the mix of stories from around the world. Astounding just how incredibly bad it is out here - and we’re all frogs simmering away at the moment. Despite this there is humour, hope and an uplifting message interwoven throughout. That Jesus is king and he’s coming back soon and we’ve got to be ready. Need to buy Seek sometime soon!
I used to live in Step Row just off thee Perth Road, so close to his old church - and I never knew or visited. Wasn’t a Christian then really - I am now. Thank you for the work put into this and the message. Thank you for keeping us well informed. God bless.
