He also often called himself an only child. But that wasn't really kind of true but not really true We had two older half brothers that he accept as his brothers but he didn't spend a lot of time with either them during the childhood.

"In some ways. I think that that probably is true. I think even since we've been here There has been a noticeable change in the in the demographic canal there are many more people a on just is actually just awarded demographic is sort of. That's one bad thing to say. It's just a satellite of cambridge and it really. Isn't i mean it really is a proper village in its own right and it has an identity and id. Yes we are in cambridge. But it's not mean trumpington. I think is slow to cambridge. As i think that has less of its identity but i think really is and then acoustical television program which is quite good. It was very good with james autumn. Isn't it slightly less good now but again at that has raised the profile. And sometimes you get a church and people will have come specifically to grant just to come in. Look at the church because they've seen it on television so i'm just gonna play the promo for the drama series crunches which is now in its fifth season and you guys may wanna listen to it on on the parish conscious fee to do down there i imagine. Do you feel like you're accepted as part of the village now twenty years. yeah definitely. it's important to get involved in live in this community. That's that's the point of it. That's points villages and it really that you people in you in you will. You will pull together. Feels like a village was a place that supported each other during covert and and everyone was there to look out for each other very much. I think we will complete east shocked by is and fact we. We have the loss of proportionate. I think there are lots of elderly people and grunge strategy people used to get a buy food for people. Get them prescriptions and just go in the talks them through the from the couldn't go to social distance. But yeah you just gain and anybody who wants anything so we went and drop leaflets. Who every and said this is the number to ring if you need anything and in just words incredibly well actually people felt that they were people looking out for them and an inspiration them if they need today which is important but it meant the burden was shad through a lot of different people which was which was good because there's no way that one person she could have done with that so it was an event that you met people that you had necessarily met before which was nice so i think that you know what will we had relatively good. Kobe lockdown uptake. You the first time. I think which was the worst the worst whether it was nice and stuff but it was the one worth that you weren't allowed to do anything go anywhere or whatever and i think. That was quite scary for lots of people particularly philip by themselves which the older people do say. Yeah it was it was it was. It was a good good effort. Shame my Best friend and i met when we were five at the graduate school which was Yeah as i said before like on the site of an original roman camp and actually kids would find ancient in the playground. Bizarrely like in england. Many of the schools are run by the church england. Which is actually pretty super weird. Anyway meant that. Shane and i had to sing. Turgid anglican religious songs every day. The old school meetings wasn't like for you shame. That was very difficult for me. Yeah i'm sure you. I think it was the same as every other school that you were supposed to have bilo. You're supposed to have Re so religious. Education is the National curriculum even though and i was just talking to the back. It's like i'd never actually been in the house but you remember. We go and steal their apples. We'll look this done. Think i've been thinking about this a lot lately. Because this time of year is is scrimping scrimping season and. We used to do a lot of that. And i can't scramble up walls like i used to be able to. And and it's a shame. Because i've got my eye on a couple of really nice apple trees in one night so i'll be thinking about the buckets. The buckets had these huge trees ferry large apples and they had lots of them. I mean that wasn't just an orchard and they didn't pick any and they were they. Were being apple's you couldn't scrimp six of them because you couldn't carry them back over the wall in and there was him but they were delicious. That were huge juicy and sweet and we were so scared. I remember just being petrified. We just thought they like the rope. Violence whereafter us we. I is a bit deliverance because they got so big right and there trees were intimidatingly. Large never seen apple trees that actually that would total. There were seventy foot trees and while we were about to six maybe they looked a bit bigger than there actually were but yes g. member like walking home through the meadows yes. Another some thing in cambridge is when you got two teenage years. We used to have parties in the meadows will come flipside or things that we walk on medical doc in midsummer in but it was a matching. Kids is still doing that now. I love it down. The meadows great on they. What would we have done without the meadows. I mean we had. We had a bull in those places in the summer. When you go back to grant still like. How's it changed. What's changed no no go. Carriage that sells the bowls of tenderloin lynam burdock in has the smith toys. My remember this math toys. Yeah yeah yeah. I mean i work great so yeah the garage do it. Now it is cooled cambridge distillery. It's a light gin distillery. Well you answered your own question there once once. Grantchester becomes gentrified and hips defied. Then that's how answering the question. How's it changed. I think that's i couldn't have anticipated that and we wouldn't have anticipated that women here at school in short trousers. So when this code a guarantee and then next to it was the teeny little police station. That was the it. Wasn't that the old english way was basically. You just get one police sergeant chaman house. And he doesn't come out for anything you could have had a mad exponential escaped from full or something and he wouldn't really if he was having his beans on toast he wouldn't come out. I remember him. What does it mean if crunches to become gentrified like what does it mean for village life like generally well. I would expect a lot of pop-up bullshit restaurants overpriced and kofi becomes a thing. I can't see that being a pop-up michelin star. Restaurant or a food. Truck is but they're always was efficient..

"Of millions of people watching it I would know about the numbers. I have heard of of the series and again i think i'm not saying that nobody over here cares about that. I'm thinking there is a dividing line where people who care about. It are in the upper stratosphere of income levels or money prestige power and that kind of stuff and the working class. Man really doesn't know about it. But i know there was some story about about martin was sherry In the news or recently and some kind of We see headlines every once in a while but you know as you got to know this the there has been no news for the last four years that hasn't had the where trump in it on So we don't you know they could buy you. A nuclear bomb could fall on k. And it would say trump trump this trump that the headline so We don't know much about what's going on. We do it. A second series of the trump show all we hope not. There is one last gasp Hail mary that they're going to try and congress. Nobody thinks it's going to work. But the man just won't won't concede ever he will never admit that you love you. Just want lie down really no. I understand what you're saying about royalty over here. Because i i mean you are right. It's it's totally not cronyism that we've got. I mean you go to imagine george. Washington's great great great grandson or daughter is president of the united states. because it's a hereditary thing so we got this weird situation where i head of state is hereditary. We don't get the opportunity to vote for them. Some of them haven't been very good in some of them have a so. We don't get any choice on the basis whether it can whether they're going to be any good at it and not only that but i head of state is head of our state. Jn we have a state religion over here much like iran. You know it's it's very very strange. We have two houses. You know you have your two houses of the senate and the representatives isn't it. Yeah well over here. We had the house of commons. In the house of lords in the house of lords ninety of the people in that are hereditary they they got there because they would born with a title and another twenty five of them a bishops of the church of england. That's the episcopalian bishops. If you to me and these people guess what matt. I didn't vote for any of them right. That's that's kinda bizarre And here we have purposely the division of state religion but we kind of do have a a state religion in a lot of ways because the people in power and they've kinda. It's not the church england. Let's not the roman catholic church. It's what they want a kind of They don't want to offend or they wanna bridge to people against in. Your book is called the muslim prints. And i think for a reason. They want a bridge too. Powerful religions christianity and judaism against muslim. So we we call it here. Judeo christian values which to me is kind of funny because jew judaism in christianity really are all the only thing they have communist they worship the same god but other than that most of the values and principles they hit to the only one they have in common other than worshiping the same god hate muslims. The teenage interestingly the muslims bush the same gorge you know they also believe in large parts of the old testament you know. They're all the three main really three religions. Judaism christianity and islam are all people of the book right. The book being the old testament coast. You know not a new testament. I so you have something. They still have quite an incumbent. Nearly tim i wanted to in in my book. I wanted to so dale with the idea. You see so just going back very slightly by law. Sovereign can't be a catholic and they can't marry a catholic either. This harks back to henry. The eighth really. We have laws that protect the crown from rome. but i notice. We haven't gotten any laws that protect the crown from mecca and so my book is about the idea of what would happen if they young successor to the throne while he was still a prince prince giants If he actually converted to islam what would happen. How would we handle it. How would the british establishment and lit in obviously couldn't be head of the state religion so they'd have to the state religion which they should've done about two hundred years ago. Yeah and he s an interesting play on latin Bit little bit mischievous really of sam. A little confused of was was diana pregnant when she was killed. I don't know i mean what to do. Know just going back to diana for a moment is that it's you know this business of the muslim princes. Diana was going out with a guy. Code has meant com for two years before she was going out. We doty fired. I did not have that. Yeah he was a surgeon lung surgeon and he still is and his. Parents have pakistanis. He's british and he to guy dying they h- to hide in the boot of her car and drove home. Keep awake from the press and she went over to pakistan to meet his parents and they didn't. They didn't approve of the fact that she was christian and so there was talk of her converting to islam. That's not such a crazy idea so in my book in my book she there is no accident because they they benched the driver who was drunk and that just changes everything. As soon as they change the driver i it actually ties him with skype. But you don't have to know that you don't have to know that if you'd redcowmn. Escapees is is completely independent books. So there's no accident in the tunnel. So consequently donna marries doty and having children with him. She converts to islam so her children who close relatives of the house of windsor. All was an kind of goes from that really. Wow wow that's heavy things to think about so if if diana had survived And and what. I mean without a crystal ball. It's really hard to know what what it would be like. But how do you. How do you envision how the world would be different. Well you see. What's what is going to happen. This is this is going to happen. Unfortunately is with the second will die and prince. Charles will certainly Say to the throne. He may not be on the throne for that long. Prince prince william takes over now. If diana had lived at that point she would have rejoined the royal family. Because her some would be on the phone he'd be king.

"At almost every turn off education say, oh they don't know which Academy trusts have a religious ethos all we ask them which Academy trusts are mix that's Continuum a mix of Faith or non-faith schools and they get back to us with with inconsistent or strange information. So with this report we decided to sit down and to just try and work out based on model fund the agreement wage and the information that was available at schools which schools which have become academies or new economies are in which trusts and which of those are religious or not talking of these birth. Now your Port looked at a range of schools, which had been absorbed into these. Multi Academy trusts just quickly. What is the significance of this structure? Well, it can be very confusing for parents in England that there are quite a range of different types of schools. So traditionally we had three main types in England which were voluntary controlled voluntary wage those with different types of Faith schools and Community Schools, which were non Faith schools. We also had you know things like Foundation schools and some other small strange strange models walk through a kind of motivation what happens is with the school is known and controlled by the local Authority, but it's a controlled by an independent organization called a trust and they can be modeled along the same lines to volunteer control of one credit score or could be a faith school or could that be a community for us in that they have no specific religious designation. What was it key findings of your report? We found that more than 2,600 non Faith Academy's as a camera that shouldn't have a fee for so designation. And that's actually almost half of the academies of non-faith enemies in multi-country trusts. We're actually in trust that had some for more likely have some form of religious governance. This is several thousand schools, which you would think would be just run along totally secular lines and would have no special religious input. In fact potentially having policies dictated by religious appointees. We also found that out 265 form of community schools had since it kind of ization acquired a fee for so designation in other words schools, which were previously thousand denominational at all had become more religious. Does that mean overall that more schools are now have some religious influence than used to? Yes, but it's no longer enough just to see where wage The school itself has a faith basis. You also need to look at the trust and within which it operates so you could have a school which describes itself and operates on a day-to-day basis as a non faithful Community fought so but still has some policies which are decided by religious twenties. Let's look at those appointees and let's look at the different ways in which religious groups and individuals can influence these skills. So first of all, there's the governors of the school and the trustees how might there be influenced by religious organizations on a day-to-day basis the governance of a structure of school can seem somewhat disconnected from what happens in the school on any given day but these things do influence policy over a longer period of time when the case has the report we looked at one that was a non-faith of community here for school, which is part of a faith-based marked Academy trust and since it became part of that trust policy dictated that the collective worship requirement was dead. Course much more stringently. When you have people in the people in the room making the decision and those who decisions that can be very quite routine or could be profound and really go to the heart of the ethos School in Ann on faith in a community for school. You'd expect those people to be a point in either democratically or meritoriously, you wouldn't expect them. You shouldn't expect them to be promoted based on their faith eephus. And and what you're saying is that now a lot more of these Governors and trustees are being appointed because of their religious affiliations. Yes potential though is as we as we send the play is very difficult to find that too just to find this that these things out to find out how many people are appointed by particularly diocese and Boards of Education wage. Well, let's talk now about the designation National ethos of the school overall. Would you say that that schools have become more religious in other ways as well since they became academies not just in terms. Yep. Government structure, but in other ways on a day-to-day level you mentioned Collective worship or examples as well. So it's kind of a Hallmark of schools don't have religious education Community for Saturday are much more likely to interpret the collective worship requirement more broadly and to almost interpret it out of existence of schools to be more like wage hold simply inclusive assemblies that provide an opportunity for worship, but don't dictate it when you have trust wide policies promoting Collective worship that can affect all schools in the trust non-faith Community for schools are expected to teach locally determined religious education. But if you have a trust level deciding what what text books again I bought what professional career development opportunities are going to be for teachers that can also influence then how it's delivered. Even if it is technically still non-denominational dead. There's also the issue of voluntary controlled face course, I don't really want to get deeply into terminology and differences. But many people have an experience and thoughts about voluntary controlled Faith schools with a Church of England schools typically as being much more like touch maybe, you know, sort of a halfway house between some of them more stricter Faith schools and Community Schools, however through a categorization we're seeing that difference between voluntary controlled and voluntary aided Faith schools diminish and once a month a safe score a bunch of controlled face school, which previously may have had a degree of independence from the diocese once it's forced into and has no choice about what trust it goes into its forced into a multi can be trust backed by the diocese. That's a much tighter level of control over it and therefore that's one of the many ways in which particular Church England who controls what is v c face scores are dead. Need to increase the rigor of the religious ethos in new V Alistair what needs to be done to counter? What what seems to be a Resurgence in religious influence in schools report makes a number of recommendations for both national and local policymakers and we will be writing both the department for education and Regional School Commissioners off automatically. If we want to protect communities was education then we need to start taking it. Seriously. There are whole mechanisms in place to protect Faith schools ethos, but there's but the DFE have shown time and time again that they simply don't value or take seriously enough the protection of Community School resources. It's unsurprising because the faith School Lobby is very well organized and there's there's not a comparable pay for protecting non faithful Community for schools. What can members do if they feel strongly about this if we it would be great if supporters in England could share the report with them with their dog Pace we've got the facility on our website and we'll Link in the show notes to be to start with the template letter if you're affected by any of the issues in this report. So for example, if you work in or off Governor or parent who attends a non-faith school that is being forced into a faith-based Marta can be trust or you have religious governance in your accademy, trust back biting or containing any faith schools or even if you are involved in a safe school which values its independence and and doesn't want to be promoting a very strict religious ethos, you feel you're being forced into that for a kind of adulation then definitely get in touch and be happy to support you. I'd also as I said as I'm I always say is if you said if you're interested in this report and you support the work of the NSS, then please do join or donate reports that this and original research and the time that goes into providing casework support. For the people affected is.

"You're listening to the National Secular Society podcast hosted by. Emma pocket. Queen. Elizabeth. The second is now the longest reigning monarch in British history and one of the most popular. But what will happen when she eventually dies well, Prince Charles. Simply succeed to the hereditary throne and carry on the same old tradition. We'll email to be anointed by the Bishop of, Canterbury, in Westminster Abbey and will he assumed the title of Defender of the Faith and supreme? Governor of the Church of England, we'll Britain's political establishment continued to be Anglican monarchical and general stuck in the nineteenth century. I'm joined today by Graeme Smith CEO, Republic Republicans, a member based pressure group, which calls for the abolition of monarchy and the substitution of an elected head of state, as well as for an elected House of Lords Grandma, and I will be discussing how close the links between the monarchy and the established church why we should cat and whether secularists need to be Republicans. So I'm joined now by Graeme Smith of Republic I'm Graham just starting with the most. Question in a way, should the abolition of the monarchy pianist shoot the support of secularism are concerned about? Yes. Absolutely. I think that. You know. I would say everybody should be concerned about it but I I. The monarchy as a quasi religious institution and the it's very much bound up with the established church. The Queen of goals is the head of the church. England, and it know the family. Even if we sort of pay separated out the crown from the church I think the Family itself is very much part of the Pasta Christian tradition. And you only ever, GonNa get that that same family in that position. Underlying this. If you look at the Oth, the Queen took back in nineteen, fifty three when she did her coronation. About God not so much about. Democracy and modern values I. Mean, it's is asked by the archbishop will. You do your utmost. To maintain the laws of God and the True Professional. Gospel.

"church england" Discussed on Talking About The Bible with Rev. Bob Wood
"This is Bob would talking about the Bible podcast. It's really good to be back with you. I've been out of the loop for several months because of a heart attack ahead in November put on bedrest and I wasn't allowed to do a lot so I had to kind of focus on the things that really needed to get done. The podcast is an important but it was a came to be something I had to put on the back burner but as I start the podcast again today. I am kind of cheating because I'm going to be using a sermon that I gave several years ago. At the giant Methodist Church analysts say Honduras called methodist beliefs. I hope you enjoy it. If you have a pin and you want to win with our fill in the blanks in the middle of your worship. She is a little separate page which says on the top of it methodist beliefs methodist movies. A lot of people that I run into when you talk to them about their churches. They know what their churches believe. I dare you to find a Jehovah's witness that doesn't know what his church believe they know you can find to Mormon boys walking down the street. Ask Him what the Mormon Church believes. And they'll know I'd hate to give test methodist asking them. What Methodist Belief Fair? I'm afraid there'd be a lot of failure this past week last two weeks. The United Methodist Church. Not We're not united methods methods church. The Caribbean Americans. The United Methodist International had been meeting in Portland Oregon. Anyone following the debates. There is clear that there's not a clear understanding what they agree on what they believe. But in our tradition tradition the Methodist Church of the Carribean in the Americas the tradition of the Methodist Church in the Americas before which was the Wesleyan Methodist Church. So we all still think of our us as being a Wesleyan Methodist Church all the way back to England. We have a clear understanding our beliefs. John and Charles Wesley. Experience in those of the other young methodist men was affected their teachings in their beliefs such things as their experience when it comes down to not knowing for sure if they were saved John and Charles and the others had worked so much they had show hard to make sure they were saved and yet they did not since it in their hearts a lot of people may be like that even today in our world you talk to people and ask them if they know that they're going to heaven and there's a lack of confidence in that they are going to go ahead John. In Charleston teachings spread across the world and their short lifetime missionaries went out with this understanding this teaching not anything new just going back to the scriptures not anything revolutionary per se. Not Anything that they thought of themselves. Not something that. An Angel came down and gave him a new book. They just started to read the old book that had for many people in the organized structure of the Church in England and gone away. You know England and their day when you were born in your community you were taken to the church and you are baptized and you were a member of the Church. England all your life. It was the thing to do. You weren't a member of the Church of England in some places you couldn't vote couldn't hold public office. Everyone had to be a member of the church in England and membership in the Church of England wasn't about anything about your relationship with God had far more to do with just if you'd gone and sign the paper and turn the right ceremonies and said the right things and John Charles found that not to really fill their needs in their heart their experiences both of them not at alter skate but both within a few short days in seventeen thirty eight. Charles on pentecost Sunday and then John Wesley. A few days later at the society meeting and alter skate changed their lives. They read something John as we read John. Read or heard someone reading something that Martin Luther had written about salvation by faith and it was really changed his life he no longer saw salvation as being something that you did something that God did for you. It wasn't something you worked in earned. If you've got enough points you would get a check mark in your name. We get in the life of life. It was something that God did through you are. I fill talks about one of the things that John and Charles recognized and that we as methodist hold true all need to be saved. That's the first full villain all need to be saved. Everybody needs to be saved is now for a special club. If not that something you can get by on John. Charles knew that real well you know. Their father and their grandfathers had been ministers in the church. You would think that. Not only the preacher son but the peaches grandson would obviously get you in heaven all need to be say. Romans three twenty three says for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We all are centers. And we all have sinned. And we all aren't living up to God's expectation which is perfection we've all sinned somewhere in our is maybe recently maybe just a few moments ago maybe years ago but all of us have universally said. Romans three chapter chapter three verse. Ten to twelve says as it is written there is none righteous. No not one. There's none that understand it. There is none that speak it seeking after God. There are are all gone out on their own way. They are together becoming unprofitable. There is none that do good. No not one. And so on fourteen versus two and three says the Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any. They did that any for any they. Any that did understand and see God they all are GonNa side. They're all together became filthy. There is none that do as good. No not one. We may see somebody look at them and say my goodness that person is so good. That person is so holy. I'm sure they never did anything wrong. In the event that have race children know that not to be so little. Sarah is only nineteen months old. My littlest daughter. My goodness she can be mean. She thinks we're not looking. She goes in boxes or brother in the head. She scratches him. She's only nineteen months old and he and I say this now. I grew up in this around. Y'All our Jerry. By the time she's fifteen sixteen seventeen years old. I assure you she won't be able to stand in front of you and tell you she said because I already seen it now. That is true for all of us. We have all said. How many are the take to get in hell? Although won only one only way we can get into heaven on our own accord is to have never sinned in the scripture says right there we all have settled number two. The y'all and Y'all who've heard me preach for this past year that I've been here have heard all these points before because I preach methodist theology the second point in Methodist Theology. You need to note is that all may be saved every one of us can be saved. There's no one that is outside the bounds of salvation. There is no one who listened to the point where God's salvation cannot come to them all people may be saved a man in the United States who is on death row in my home state of Florida. If you had to put together diagram that would say or a history that would say this is an evil man. Well this man's history surely would. He was found guilty of killing two girls who are university students at Florida State University later on. He was found guilty of killing several others. And would it came down to the last few days of his life. He admitted to killing forty one women in the course of his lives you would think how could such a man he asked for Dr Dobson? Some of the older folks may have heard Dr Dobson famous minister in the United States to come and see him and Dr Dawson did the last few days of life and prayed with him to get say. Dr Dobson said it was clear that after he prayed that he stood before him a changed me. All of us can be saved. There's no sin that you have committed and you think you know. I know something I've done in my life. That is so horrible that God could never forgive me and I want you to know that. There's not there is not the unforgivable sin that Jesus talks about is a sin of rejecting Jesus before all else. There's nothing that we can do to separate us. From the love of God John Three Sixteen says for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that who so ever believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life. It doesn't say there are some people. It says the Gods of other world that who still ever believe anyone that believe in God can be saved. Nothing you can do. Nothing that you have done can keep you from. God's Love and God's salvation number three all may know themselves save all they know themselves saved. That's what John and Charles didn't know they didn't know themselves to be saved. They were working so hard to make sure because they didn't know that they were saved the experience that Charles had pentecost and that Jon had at Alder Skate. We're an experience of assurance knowing that they were saved brothers and sisters. When you're saved you can sense in your heart. The Holy Spirit and God's law the Scripture says there in Romans eight sixteen that the spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. That's the Holy Spirit in our life. Witnesses to us that we are God's children when people come to alter when they pray in their home when they ask Jesus blood to be applied their sin and they become believers and committed to Christ they since it in their heart. Though I stand at the door knock if any man will open the door I will come in and I will stop with him and he with me. Jesus is ready to enter your heart as we think so often all made though themselves. Say if you don't know for sure that's something that needs to be fixed. John and Charles felt it.

"Star Trek but I mean it's it's like a it's like it's like the two worst teams in the league. Blaney judge who cares it. Everybody loses really just is this tickets gets cheap enough to go watch it. Basically I tagged you in an article on twitter and I hope that was a hint that I was going to bring it up in the show but did you you see that the Church of England actually took a stand and said that same sex marriage is the only kind of marriage there is in town. Could you read that heterosexual sheet. Oh I'm sorry heterosexual marriage. Well I mean on the one hand I can believe it because it's so bait. Patently patently absurd to think otherwise but on the other hand. I can't believe it because you would think that they would at least cave a little bit especially because it really wishy washy. I don't follow them too much. Obviously because they're the Church of England and were America and we fought a war so we don't care about England but they are. They believe that you can be in a relationship together. As long as you're not sexual like if you're gay you know whatever and all that stuff and so it was just really surprising to me because to me. It's like if your audio yeah I know so I mean that's not really that common of a belief I guess it but it seems to me that there's like this pattern and it looks like the kind of took a step back instead of going so those kind of encouraging. Yeah that's true it's a little bit. It's not what you would expect. The pattern is to go the other way and then they're just kinda hesitating a little bit now and that's a good thing I'll take any pushback even if it's just a little bit does just a moment of relief. Listen to listen to the guidance it says sexual relationships outside outside. Heterosexual marriage are regarded as falling short of God's purposes for human beings. Like you know so. They're not trying. They're not they're trying not to be jerks. I get get it but at least they they end up in kind of the right place right and they even say like if You know same sex couple came then. We'll encourage the pastors to take care of. It passed earlier earlier. Something very soft like very very weak. But you know you can't you can't get the whole thing. I guess with the Church of England but still I I appreciate the little the little bit of truth. Yeah and I so I brought this up for two reasons. One is that it was like. Oh it's kind of refreshing that we actually get a pause in this decline in these denominations but also just reading the article as reading it from the Guardian and it really just struck me that every time there is people that talk about the church. It's not assuming that God exists. It's always like well. The Rights Really GonNa love their position on this and it's almost just political and end. Game of thrones kind of like what kind of moves are they making behind the scenes. And what alliances do they have. There's no like it. Well God says this in the Bible and they're actually going going along with it like the assumption God doesn't exist in religion is just this crutch for all of humanity. Yeah it's just a political game like anything else right exactly early you know like why. Why did they come out with this statement at this time? What are they trying to do to the elections in the United States is like you know like like it doesn't? It's not that they actually read the Bible. They consider it God's word they said well you know let's clear. Yeah no they're taking a principled stand in their resting on their biblical foundation. No it's none of that whatsoever however that's not just true church England. I see that with all of the commentary on our churches it's always like Oh. Trump's fans are republicans. Whatever there's no mention of if God exists exists and and and again I sadly a lot of this kind of assumption of you know? It's not really what about what God says it wiggles wiggles. Its way into our circles as well. You see how people talk about like one example was recently people were all up in arms because one of the seminary presidents uncharacteristically made hard statement against James Cone of the founder of black theology. And he said he's a heretic and then everyone in their mother you know in the social justice debate was like this is not about theology. This is about a black man who said strong things like. You're just just assuming that God hasn't spoken right. You know what I mean. This guy is saying God has spoken. This is why I say this. You're just assuming that that can't be the case. This asked to be political olitical. It has to be racially motivated. It's it's there's so many examples of this that we could talk about this forever definitely Russell more just tweeted an old article about being pro-life that does the same exact thing where it's like you know like you know being prologue you know. We don't have to agree on affirmative action but we should agree that good you know black people madder sadder and but there's like no references to scripture right. It's like it's like no we do have to agree on affirmative action. God has spoken. And you know we do have to agree On healthcare systems and stuff like that God has spoken like we. We don't get to agree to. This is not a political game to me. Yeah right absolutely like the politics are so oh secondary yeah Things but I wonder if the reason why the world like talks and writes articles like God. It doesn't exist and just assume that it's all political is because we are so soft and we don't say things like thus says the Lord but we do the Russell more approach of. Yeah well you know. Let's just think about it from a rational perspective and a logical perspective. Sure I wonder I I honestly don't know but it it it it it makes sense to me. I mean people aren't used to hearing that like like I remember. One time I saw a sixty minutes I think it was sixty. Minutes is very old episode of sixty minutes with with RJ. Rush Judy on it. He was the theology guy and imagine rushed. Uni being on sixty minutes like. That's that's pretty crazy. And so they were asking him. They said they said so. So wait a minute wait a minute let me get this straight. You're saying that if somebody is caught in a homosexual sexual act that they should be stoned. Is that what you're saying like they couldn't even believe it and and and Russia and he says I'm not saying that God says what choice do I have. I have to listen to what God says and I thought that was such an interesting answer is like this is not about what I prefer. I just I just read it. It's on the page I have and you might quibble with what he believes there but the point is he still willing to be sold out to what God says. It's not about his opinion he doesn't care he's like it's not me. I just don't have a choice. I have to accept it. Yeah I g three which man so many people ask where you were on a story missed. Yeah I really wish I could have done. It was like this. The whole time and of this house thing was awful for that but anyway I totally understand that but anyways but you're going to be there for the fight laugh. Feast Conference Right in Tennessee. Okay good because everyone was like you better make him come and I'm like what do you want me to fly up there grabbing by ear and dragged. Yeah I'll be there great but During the breakout session that cross politics toby. It went on such a great rant about that similar thing and they were talking about the autonomy versus You know the difference between that end. What do they call? What crecy and they're bringing up those things like? What do you say to people that? Say Like Oh you believe that gay people should be stone or adulterous. People should be stoned. And he's like. Don't give me that in indignation and being condescending or killing thousands of babies a day right now somebody is dying. Someone is always has to die like that's just how the world works so don't come at me with like how can you be for wanting to stone adulterous or a homosexual or whatever or slaughtering children in every single day and it just gave me the chills. It was so good you know when toby gets on one of those rants absolutely absolutely. It's it's I was just on a podcast yesterday with with a guy that He goes to a Federal Vision Church anyway. Anyway we were talking about this exact thing where where people get all high and in Madiun. It's like y you you've got no right like like people say oh there's there's six hundred laws in the old testament just impressive. That's impressive and he's like do you know how many laws ause are on your. Probably your city ordinances. You probably got twenty thousand in a typical city and if you go to New York City you're probably talking in the hundred thousands of laws Recive totally and this is the thing I was listening to a federal worker. Who Does investigations? And he was sane rain. Every single citizen in the United States has broken federal law. That's what I told this guy. I said ten laws every day without even blinking and I right and what does that say to justice like if every single person is guilty and can be nailed on something. I mean. That's not a just society. No no but that's not get when you reject God's Law God's law simple God's laws not. There's not a lot of them and it's not oppressive at all there's a ton of freedom but people who are slaves by nature which is people that are slaves to send you know. That's that's what we are by nature. Hr were slaves to sin. We can't handle freedom. We reject it. We need to be we. We we need to be enslaved. And so we just enslave ourselves. Yeah yeah definitely and so. I think it's a good reminder in going back to kind of our goal of this year of being the cover is to throw throw this back in their faces like we don't need to be defensive and be retreating from this try to backpedal and cutting rationalize what God has said. We don't God doesn't need us to do. You know qualify things for him but we could just be bold and throw it back at them is like Oh you think you're so just you're killing innocent people. You're selling their body parts you know. Oh you're doing it for your own prosperity for no medical reason like give me a break. You guys have no sense of morality whatsoever. Who are you to throw that back at us? We should have the the firm stance to be able to do that. McCall Bible. The Bible has a great verse in. Marcus says used it for his show and it's a it's It starts off about cruelty to animals which some people don't know the Bible talks about this. It says a wise man has regard for his beast and then the next verses so interesting says but even the mercy of the wicked is cruel. And it's like yeah like your idea of mercy is actually cruel objectively. That's what it is for progresses. Yeah there's a compassionate there so woke there so cared about justice and yet they they think it should be a fundamental human right to murder your child if you want to. There's there's no there's no better example than that we cannot give that up..
"church england" Discussed on Halfway There | Christian Testimonies | Spiritual Formation, Growth, and Personal Experiences with God
"And I can't wait to bring you this conversation we're talking today with with author and journalist and she's been a nurse for over thirty years but I can't wait to talk about our books we're talking with Jill Bentham Jill Welcome to halfway there thank you this is a real privilege of enjoyed listening to some of your podcasts Eric and I love the way that you draw people out oh thank you well that is really nice of you to say I think it's it's been one of the great things that I've learned how to do and it's for me it's one of those things I learned how how to do in a call center where was miserable so I like to remind both myself and others that sometimes God's using even the things you don't think okay well and I'm sure we'll talk about some of that so let's tell us a little bit about who you are mentioned just a brief overview but tell Hillis got has right now yeah I am a northerner primarily from England and I have have been brought up as a Christian I was taken to church apparently six weeks old as with so many teenagers who have been brought to pin church I was bored with that and started to express desires toward God and I believe he was is there the if you're real will you show yourself to me so that's really when things came alive for me I had to quieter traditional methodist upbringing upbringing look for heaven's kind strict the way they express their lowest to bring my sister and I up in a home provided for us and gave us great experiences and education we didn't always necessarily feel that not low probably just a hangover from their bringing rarely that they weren't very expressive but I certainly had rich childhood and that took me towards a desire and I think because I was sensitive child to work with people an early experience in hospital as a five-year-old may have been formative in deciding that I became a nurse which I did stick to right the way through my childhood little bit of a Toss Oh with my artistic nations really did seriously consider doing an art find out degrading my art teacher was fairly disappointed that I didn't pursue that so so there's been a threat of straighted artists in there ever since and to some extent I never really fitted into nursing a sing I think that that it does Reward people who are very detail orientated and task orientated and I was much more visionary and sensitive I was much more interested in the relational side of nursing Nicole side so I file myself in the domain of Palliative care which is definitely quite different print to most of the rest of my experience with nursing and those give people call a wonderful control over their destiny the as patients it does really respect the rights to choose where they want to be how they are managed and what priorities they have in terms of symptom control pain right how they spend their time because pellet of care is is what that's like not hospice but before that rain while it is isn't it does include hospital and participate in it entails symptom management support care family support support and it does also include the end of life Gotcha I'm Bereavement Secaucus well quite challenging but I always felt how far more challenging to do well in a busy acute ward so I gravitated toward the hospice environment as it was much more settled to do that uh more relational sounds like yeah absolutely interested at one of the hospices I worked in we never wore uniforms I looked that you you were obliged to introduce yourself and explain who we were what you were there four and put you on a level playing field with the patient the power dynamics in healthcare that I was very uncomfortable with ovarian interesting okay so I wanna go back to your childhood a little bit because you said you had a of methodist upbringing and so for most of my audience who's going to be in the United States that's GonNa be maybe different than we've than we've heard before so I'd love for you just to unpack with that means a little bit well it did have its roots in a spiritual awakening in its founder John Wesley L. that he was awaken by the Holy Spirit but like so many denominations along the way in through time things become more and more former rigid but messes prided themselves on stripping away all the all powerful failure that we do see some times in the church England the aesthetics stained glass the high altar everything was washed ordinary benches pews and playing hymnbook's ordinary everything was stripped down and that was quite boring for a youngster right right yeah which is a really interesting because we deal with a lot of that over here as well right the just the Protestant like we don't have any liturgy we don't have vigny very low church and yeah I can see I can see the value of simplicity and a now that this definitely definitely a move back towards that in the contemplative type Christiana take that's reemerging but I honestly didn't really understand the Gospel as a child despite having been to church nearly every Sunday my life too much of it had been more two down two points poems uh-huh and illustrations I was annoyed I was frustrated I felt why don't I understand the Bible why don't I know it well inside hideout I don't feel as though I'm being fed here I didn't have that language but that's the way I was feeling yeah which is interesting were you were you a kid who was like always aware of that or was it just as a child I enjoy Dole am children orientated activities in the school google play orientated learning but really fairly soon into my early teens I was really quite restless with the whole thing was I was quite king to leave and if I hadn't really gone university found true life I think the eldest struggle but there were three years between being fifteen and eighteen so I became a Christian as a result of a campaign or a an outreach from a message Bible College team that visited our area the penny dropped wonderfully but then there were three years very self-directed still slow to self study and as a as a natural academic I I managed that but it was only really going to universe in learning about what real fellowship was and who the Holy Spirit is started to wake up it was the penny dropped what does that mean we're we're like what happened tells us story exactly the wording was something around the fact that you in this room some of you have a hole in your life you might be trying to fill that with this will sound came came to you today but you might be feeling that with desire for a motorbike or fashion you know we've we've gone a bit further down the slippery slope these days but that was the essence of it and and so you have this whole and it's got shape tall and only God can fill it and I just understood for the first time that he was the only one that was going to give them that satisfaction and there's a very serious studious an introvert. I needed that intimacy I really needed that's that anchor a relationship with God and I didn't feel necessarily as involved with my parents I would have liked to bain didn't see see the relationship some of my peers had with their father and so that was really a turning point I knew what she was to be loved I understood stood at third for the first time what she wants to be loved wow that's awesome so then you said you started studying so were you just kind of on your own where you really just stirlingshire what was that like how does what you probably have to America with Bible camps annual things like that okay a monthly use meeting but inbetween inbetween all I've survived on things like use devotional and Reading my Bible Parole I could possibly manage as someone without any of the Guidance Addi- really that you can tap into so easily these days but I am a natural Students so God is gracious he get he gave me he gave me learning then he he set a foundation to for me to set my face to learn to understand truth and I've always the word of God that Edison's thought Tyne Yeah interesting so that's very Sounds like that's where oh you're sort of scriptural foundation came from when you took this natural for study and Kinda dug in yeah and one of the really foundational rounded studies I did a year in the Bible in one year by 'em Selwyn Hughes Oh cool and he he'd broken up the whole all of the Bible into booklets two-month booklets that took us through everything in what was felt to be chronological order in which it it was written that really was a spellbinding and it will layer things from the old and the new and the inspirational scriptures every day as well it was really excellent very cool right understanding and who is who right right yeah so it's interesting at times I've been a critic of Reading the Bible in a whole year but there's times in your life when it is really valuable there's a time in your development when getting the big picture is really important for me I have to have the big picture a don't learn easily lutely when I've only had little pieces and connected and I haven't had the help to link those together so once I had the overview allies I was really away with I was just flying yeah that's fantastic okay so you go to school and you said that you experienced really community either for the first time what was that like how did that shape you well the there was a Christian Union and when I attended my university in a city not called whole they were probably two hundred two fifty strong at the time that group and there was some very big giant Ryan spiritual I would say looking back who will streets ahead of me in terms of spiritual experience and power in in their lives and expectation and belief in garden and practiced their faith they they prayed for one another they laid hands on one another you know we saw healings we reached our friends are appears L- evangelism was merely major thrust and if my my third year at university I was Michigan Secretary which was something that was only done about every four years so it was a cycle that had I had the privilege to be involved in outreach and handling a big campaign on scale was quite a big thick from someone at twenty one years old toy yeah so privileged to serve God in many ways and my hunger for him I would say rather than the quality of my life style was the big thing that probably pointed me out to anybody how did that manifest itself the hunger.

'cause I owned the bells ringers. Don't always work with the PC or in my case with the Cathedral Chapter. Having your background a lot of different projects. What skills are required to manage all those different projects? My imagination gets the better of me sometimes thing. Oh Yeah we'll do that. I like doing new things and I like new things in ringing and Leighton Buzzard inspired me because we lost an old fashioned ring of ten and there was a big old. We go to put them back as they were thought now. That is so boring because we have to evolve and are not ringing onto bells so the insurance paid for ten of the bells and I wring sadly few years ago paid for three extra bells so that got me into it and then let's think let's think let's think I did. A bells in Bedfordshire and oversee did summarily bow and I just loved him and people have done innovative projects and then the swamp tower in Perth. I've not been up into Perth. But since it's been bill but I think that project is inspiring and winds me up. The Best Avert Assessment Bell Ringing is in Perth Western Australia and not in this country so there is a bit of background to to motivation. I like a spouse on quite outgoing and so you get to know people in the Church and in the community and the project mountains came about there was a top of the tower. That has a thirteen fourteen hundred ring of six. Haven't been running for over one hundred years and then all that good really and we could have done something with them but I thought now. Let's do something a bit different so I wanted nursery for all. Very young ringers sub. You put in a six hundred right ring of ten and that talent belongs to our young marinas and so that that's the purpose you have to have a purpose. It has to be a reason why you doing it. You can't do putting ring a bell at has to be a reason. Why so. That's how that one came about and the project bombing was a bit of an accident because those Halewood in Liverpool became available on their Classic Nineteen Twenty Nine Tailoring fight about ten hundred. Right that absolutely gorgeous. And we've just done those mountains and bells came on the market and I spoke to the cow. Trust and Dave Kennedy said you think Oh okay so I found out my friend Berna. Tayla who is is a massive benefactor for giving bells and projects and said Bernard. I'd like to buy this ring bells. And he said okay. Have you got a towel and I went? No that's the next phone call so and I found out the victory of carbon who is a very good friend is now left. The church that said Stewart. Would you like to ring bells? And he said Yeah. Let's do it but the condition is malt. We don't pay for any of it. You raise the money yourself. So a lot of grant applications to trusts and charities and the key thing is to get support from people like our Bishop. Who is brilliant? John Inge has always supported the bell projects because he thinks ringing is great for the Church of England said. That's why I like doing. It says Alonso. I think it sort of enthusiasm and patients have not offer have to be honest and getting people to work with you have to support and not just baroness law. A lot of people to be on his side. And how do you do that? You Talk to people and I and love visitors coming to say US ring and watches ring so I don't like closed doors in churches and ring is a very unusual because we we ring. In this ferry protected environment thick stonewalls protect us from the audience. And a small doors. Down you accessing. Its adult people that normally go three. So we've made films of ringing. We've opened our doors. We do all sorts of toast. Come up invite schools up things like rotary clubs farming groups history groups scouts guides you. Name it we've had people up and PA culture. It will stir is where open and welcoming and it's very safe and all our ringers are used to engaging with visitors and Milwaukee. We've got a lot of space the teaching centre with juice CHESA. That's what we do was step and then I often go out and give talks various groups and often I guy around because I'm on the day see again. I taught to the clouds yellow about their bells too. So outreach outreach and open outdoors if you think about bringing these stonewalls protect us from the thousands of people who hear US and probably be die even think about thousands of people hearing us but imagine you're in the album hole on this twelve L. Ripe hanging down. There's five thousand people watching a the contestants or the competitors and the twelve Bodo something we'll come to the stage and perform a piece of ringing. It'd be quite nerve wracking. But that's that is actually what we all do every week. 'cause if you live in a village you'll be hundreds of people here you feed have been the city thousands of people. Harris and I think we have a duty to think about that. And that's that's something we do anything of the great state occasions. You think you're Westminster Abbey isn't polls you know for weddings and funerals. You've always had the bells ringing and one fantastic thing happened here which to me was a privileged Will as cricket. We had memorial services hair for Tom. Graveney Graham Dilley and also Basil d'olivera and I think what how important Basil Donovan was an apartheid thing. We cricket we ran before went off. The said. Is the Cricket Club Office to ring an bells broadcast on the news. The cricketing nations around the world and I thought that was just great outreach. That's great I'm what do you think about the future of bell ringing? And how can we shape that? It's an all hands test to things which I think are massively our engagement. The church England has never been more important than is now. A lot of people will have picked up the the there's a very powerful and successful evangelical wing of the Church kingland which is great however the event Jellicoe Church is massively keen on bells. Because it's just not Paul how they do church and that's fine so unnecessary engaged with the church and there is dialogue member of the Church and the bells. We deigned that such an important thing. I think I just wish we understand what that means unless veteran gauged and also think about the future of of our Church building because they know all sustainable so you know here of Vacation Church get sold to be turned into flats Nasreen bells out there or in Oxford Cross The church closed bellio. College took it over and they've sealed the bells. They won't be running again while the colleges now sooner or later that's going to happen to somewhere really big and if you think of older rings. A bell is in the in the many Victorian churches in industrial parts of the country then rung over which closed those sellers. Because I work quite a bit of money and I think sooner or later a big ringing bells will get sold for those reasons than I think we might wake up to it. I'm I am Pop. Some being a doom and gloom. But I just think west I think was sleep walking into this and we need to really engage better Mo- which churches are at risk now historic England have a heritage risk register. I think we should have church. Bells at Risk Register. Hanley was an example where the first attempt to move Hanley bells the because they were well on the morial the local conservation groups and their MP who's Tristram Hunt who now runs. The van stopped the bells. Moving say would have been sailed and not heard. Now they're going to stop it and they'll be hurt again. That's good so definitely with the church and outreach as boring as we. I mean the fat. We're doing this We can use social media alison. Everett's doing great work doing twitter. We need to do that to engage and that people understand how we contribute to the The cultural heritage that the the soundscape of England or less things that make ringing special because where heard and not seen we heard not known and a few a couple of years ago. A journalist from the F. T. Came TO TALK TO US. It was to cathedral about ringing. I think I think the only bell ringers ever to be in the Financial Times and she. She met her since she met us into torch. Everyone's publicy said I had no idea. I hear this fantastic. Sound is Englishness church but or view. I mean the diversity of our jobs the age range it's male and female it's Wacky everyone's very tame made. Everyone's very supportive and things you know if you bring ringing into school. You've got massive music. History team worked and if engaged with schools. You can do something there and I think it's just people understanding us because I think ring have been a bit Kane on hiding from brutally honest like we like doing what we do and not being accountable. Sometimes all we'd like to be under the radar and I think if we stay like that we're doomed but that's that was so much good stuff going on at the moment is great. I mean fantastic projects and just think what. The young ring is events has done the The contest that poss- seven or eight years. Just been fantastic for ringing and I'm talking to you.
