    John Lennox on Suffering, Hope and Intelligence

    John Lennox on Suffering, Hope and Intelligence

    Join me as I interview leading Christian  thinker and author Prof John  Lennox. What does human and artificial intelligence tell us about the  existance of God and our place in the universe? We mention Dr. Jordan B. Peterson several times during this discussion as well as Timothy Keller .  Few people are really challenging the roots of our defective modern culture more than Peterson, Keller, and Lennox. The goal is to stimulate people to really think. This discussion is not hard to follow, we do not use complex terms, but I pray it will help you explore your most fundamental assumptions about the meaning of life, and in particular our place in the universe. We talk about a personal relationship with God, and how whilst suffering poses us questions, to give an atheist answer doesn't take away the pain it only takes away the hope.  The video is also available: https://admin.patheos.com/blogs/adrianwarnock/2020/06/live-john-lennox-on-suffering-hope-and-intelligence

    Coronacrunch church growth - is this what a revival looks like?

    Coronacrunch church growth - is this what a revival looks like?

    Something special is happening here in Britain. Similar reports are coming in from around the world.  I never imagined I would be able to type the next sentence: Since lock down 1 in 4 British people have attended an online service.

    That is an astonishing figure. And if you look at young adults the proportion is even higher at one in three! All this was reported in The Guardian which is not exactly known for being pro-church. And in breaking news this morning, 70% of church leaders report a rise in church attendance.

    For sure if they all turn up the first week after lockdown our buildings will be completely swamped and overwhelmed.

    Some churches are having double the number of virtual attendees than they did back “in real life”. See this article for more background to the interview: https://www.patheos.com/blogs/adrianwarnock/2020/06/covid-19-revival/

    A future free of COVID19 for all of us? Blood cancer expert discusses exit plans

    A future free of COVID19 for all of us? Blood cancer expert discusses exit plans

    Listen to this if you need a bit of hope from one of the World's Leading Experts in CLL. Just how risky is catching COVID19 for blood cancer patients?   Should we be stuck indoors alone for many more months? Can we begin to cautiously emerge? How do we wiegh the very real risk from COVID-19, against the very real costs of shielding which include risks to people's health and even life. Prof Peter Hillmen urges people who get sick to come to hospital as normal and explains how doctors and nurses are working hard to keep people safe.   We talk about the so-called entry strategy including vaccines, antibody tests, how to know if it is safe to go out, and his optimistic view that shielding will likely be gradually relaxed rather than suddenly lifted at the end of June. He believes that soon Covid19 will be behind us all and be remembered as a strange blip that caused a lot of trouble but which got eradicated.

    Past, present and an optimistic future for patients with CLL a form of blood cancer - Interview with expert Prof Peter Hillmen

    Past, present and an optimistic future for patients with CLL a form of blood cancer - Interview with expert Prof Peter Hillmen

    Watch this friendly and easy to understand two part interview  with one of the top specialist doctors in the World on this form of blood cancer. Prof Hillmen explained why treatment is often not offered initially, how that can be very worrying for patients, and how they decide when it is time to consider treatment. He explained that there are currently two strategies: to try and aim to get rid of the disease as much as possible or even cure CLL (FCR or venetoclax containing combinations) , the second is to try and to co-exist with it under control (ibrutinib or acalabrutinib)

    We discussed the need to have skilled expert care available to at least advise your doctors at crucial times. Some local teams will work very closely with the top experts and refer to them for help with unusual problems and to consider for clinical trials when appropriate. Prof Hillmen has a  very personable friendly manner, and explained some complicated things in a very simple user-friendly way.

    Prof Hillmen has worked in clinical research to find new treatments for Chronic Lymphocytic since the 1990s. He is optimistic for our future. Like other blood cancers we are now seeing patients living a lot longer than earlier in his disease. He said "the outcome in terms of lifespan is now similar to patients without CLL". However, he doesn't minimise the impact this condition can have on people due to increased infection risk and fatigue. Both of these can happen even quite early in the disease. He explained, "CLL is a disease of the immune system getting quite old and tired, really."

    Super Survivor Andrew Schorr beat two blood cancers and is still fighting for patients

    Super Survivor Andrew Schorr beat two blood cancers and is still fighting for patients

    Grabbed some time with Andrew Schorr from Patient Power. Was great to hear about how he was one of the first cohort of patients to be treated with FCR chemotherapy for CLL, a form of blood cancer, a couple of decades ago. He hadn't expected to survive his Blood Cancer this long, nor to get a second one and be successfully treated for that too.    This is a story of hope.  And a story of a man convinced that the Universe spared him for a purpose and a mission. As he said doctors better listen to him and his patient friends, or else!  Be encouraged. Be inspired to give something back to the Blood Cancer community and to go on learning together.
