Vicars Tom Pelham and Jamie Franklin sit down to discuss the latest news from a theological and scriptural perspective.
Our opening Scriptures are Zechariah 3 and Romans 5:1-12: the message of the righteousness of Christ given to unworthy sinners.
We talked about the notion of vaccine passports in church and society, and we review some theological arguments that have been made against "vaccine sceptics". Other topics include the recent mass shootings in Plymouth and the "incel" community. In addition, we revisit the situation in Afghanistan and talk about the situation for women, young girls and Christian churches and pastors.
