    Women at Hajj; Football and Racism and Universal Credit

    Women at Hajj; Football and Racism and Universal Credit

    This year, for the first time, women are allowed to register for the pilgrimage to Islam's holiest city this year without a male guardian. The Hajj to Mecca in Saudi Arabia begins on July 17th and continues until 22nd July. It was to be something of a festival, with women from all over the world planning to go together. Sadly only Saudi citizens can attend due to Covid restrictions. But it's still a big moment for Muslim Feminists. The BBC's Emb Hashmi reports.

    England under 21's football coach Michael Johnson talks to Edward about how he guides young players and helps with their resilience and coping strategies with racism and how his Christian faith helps him in difficult times.

    The Church of England and the charity Child Poverty Action want the Government to change its policy of limiting most universal credit payments to a maximum of two children per family. The two child limit started in 2017. Official figures published this week show that more than a million children have been affected since then - many from religious minorities. The Bishop of Durham the Right Reverend Paul Butler is the Church's spokesman on Families and Welfare.

    Football seems to have united England - at least temporarily. And there's a lot of faith involved both on and off the pitch. William talks to Rabbi Alex Goldberg, chair of the England Football Associations Faith Network, about the example being shown by Gareth Southgate's team and how we might keep the momentum going after Sunday's game.

    What does the title Reverend mean to you? A mark of respect for the office, or a contribution to an unwanted culture of deference which damages the church? Titles for the clergy such as Reverend, Most Reverend and The Venerable have been used for more than 500 years. But the Church of England now considering dropping them in favour of simple job titles. We discuss what purpose they serve with the rector who wants to get rid of them and the priest who thinks they serve a purpose.

    The Methodist Church has become the largest religious denomination in Britain to permit same-sex marriages, with the first marriages expected in the Autumn. William will talk about this momentous change with Jarel Robinson Brown, who resigned from Methodist ministry as he felt unwelcome. He is now an Anglican curate with radical ideas to tackle racism and homophobia in the UK.

    And Gospel Singer of the Year, Monique McKen, on the particular joy of congregational singing and its possible return.

    Next week, visitors to the Hampton Court Flower show (opening 6th July) will be able to sit in the Communication Garden which has been designed by Amelia Bouquet in support of Mental Health UK. Amelia talks about the health benefits of gardening.

    When Sozan Miglioli is not performing his duties as a Buddhist Monk at the Tassajara Zen Mountain Centre, he becomes a ‘Fire Monk’. Now that wild fires are raging near his monastery in California, he describes his fire prevention techniques to Emily Buchanan.

    Fatima the Film; Tik Tok Anti-Semitism and Methodist Gay Marriage Vote

    Marco Pontecorvo, a director best known for his award winning work on television, including Rome and Game of Thrones, talks to Sunday about his new film Fatima. It tells the story of three Portuguese shepherds who reported visions of the Virgin Mary more than a hundred years ago.

    Jewish TikTok video makers say measures to protect them against anti-Semitism on the app are actually stopping them speaking about their faith. BBC digital journalist, and TikTok user, Sophia Smith-Galer tells William what's going on.

    And an exclusive interview with the first Black female president of the Methodist Conference ahead of a momentous vote on same-sex marriage. William discusses the vote with Reverend Sonia Hicks as well as her hopes of what she'll achieve in post.
