In our (sort of) festive episode, Church of England Revs Tom Pelham and Jamie Franklin sit down to give a spiritual perspective on the big stories of our time. This week: Tom’s heroic antics in snowy Etchingham, the best World Cup ever in Qatar, God Rest Ye Merry edited for political purposes, reflections upon Andrew Bridgen’s intervention in the V-safety debate, woman arrested for silently praying outside abortion clinic - currently unclear whether or not the Archbishop of Canterbury supports the arrest - a Question the Rev on understanding the whole of church history and an email offering a conservative reappraisal of the desirableness of cars in society. That and much much more as ever on this week's Irreverend: Faith and Current Affairs!
