The Redman and Riddle podcast is a series of conversations between long-time friends UK worship leader Matt Redman and US worship leader Jeremy Riddle. Starting as coffee-shop chats, Redman and Riddle decided to carry on these discussions in a recorded environment. Each episode takes on a 'this' versus 'that' format – such as 'Encounter vs Entertainment' and 'Holiness vs Helpfulness'. Expect some weighty and challenging conversations as they wrestle with what it means to worship the God who is, “Holy, Holy, Holy”, in a world of, “me, me, me”.
Q&A SPECIAL #2
In this second Q&A special, long time friends Jeremy and Matt take more of your calls - diving deeper into some of the themes discussed earlier in this podcast series.
DEPENDENCE VS EXPERIENCE
In this episode Redman and Riddle discuss their personal worship leading journeys - reflecting on the importance of remaining dependent on God, no matter how much experience we may gained along the way.
IMMANENCE VS TRANSCENDENCE
God gets up close and personal in our lives, yet never becomes less high or holy in the process. Jeremy and Matt talk about the importance of contending for a sense of paradox and mystery in our worship.
HOLINESS VS HELPFULNESS
Sometimes we can tend to focus on worshipping God for the things about Him that are directly helpful to us. But there’s a deeper call - to stand back and worship Him simply for His glory and holiness. In this episode Matt and Jeremy take on this theme - asking how we can adopt a healthy, biblical balance.
Q&A SPECIAL #1
In this Q&A special, transatlantic friends Matt and Jeremy invite you into the conversation for the first time - taking comments and questions from worship leaders around the globe.
MARKETING VS MANTLE
How do we navigate the ministry of worship music in a time when there’s never been more opportunity to self-celebrate, self-congratulate and self-obsess? In this episode Matt and Jeremy attempt to wrestle down some answers.
