Welcome to Irreverend: Faith and Current Affairs! CofE vicars Tom Pelham and Jamie Franklin talk about the news from a spiritual perspective and offer some hints and tips on how to navigate the modern world with your soul in tact.
This week: is it the thermocalypse or just some sunny days? Rev Jamie shares some thoughts from Psalm 19 about the gift of the sun and how the diverse weather patterns of the world speak of God's creativity and wisdom. The Guardian has a different view, of course, we are all going to die in flames and we should be terrified - https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/jul/18/britain-hothouse-extreme-weather?CMP=share_btn_tw.
In an unexpected move, Prince Harry has thrown his hat into the ring by flying in a private jet to an exclusive United Nations conference, opining his way to sanctimony by simultaneously raising the climate alarm and insulting the Supreme Court of his adopted nation.
In church news, voices in the Church of England continue to attempt to define what a woman is and the American Episcopal Church comes very close to condemning crisis centres whilst affirming abortion up to birth.
We close out with some Question the Revs on walking out of church during woke sermons, silent prayer and personal favourite Scriptures.
