Rev with a difference Jamie Franklin sits down to review the most pressing issues in church and society. This week:
- Net Zero mania in the CofE as affirmation of environmental activism is added to confirmation ritual.
- CofE spokesman defends teaching of critical race theory in CofE school classrooms.
- Tory councillor King Lawal is cancelled for saying on Twitter that pride is a sin.
- Pro-life activists say they were banned from worshipping at York Minster.
- Controversy as friends of Mike Pilavachi tweet in his support.
That and a couple of Question the Revs with questions about Holy Communion and baptism. Our Scripture this week is Romans 8:9-22.
