Show Notes

Revs Tom, Jamie and Daniel get together to discuss the way that the government have used fear to control people, the recent attack on people who do not want to have COVID-19 vaccinations and the projection of the words "vaccine saves" onto the statue of Christ the Redeemer.
Our Scripture this week is taken from Isaiah 43:1-2, which speaks of God's intention that we not live lives characterised by fear.
The Telegraph - Use of fear to control behaviour in Covid crisis was ‘totalitarian’, admit scientists
Cake and Liberty - Oi Missus, Where's Your Bell?
The Independent - This is what we do about anti-vaxxers: No job. No entry. No NHS access
