This week saw the release of another episode of Thorny Questions, as we continued to think about the Bible and whether or not it had been changed over the centuries. Make sure to check out our video on the subject, delivered in our tongue in cheek manner as always.
The LIVEcast fell on Shrove Tuesday this week, so why not check out our discussion about lent and the two main approaches people have to it. We also chatted about how grieving the death of celebrities has become the new normal in a society that is both obsessed with death yet also not exposed to it. We also thought a little more about the topic of singleness, particularly in the light of an excellent sermon the subject by Reverend Steve Rees of All Saints Crowborough. As always, the discussion is available as a video and podcast.
At Speak Life we want to expand our output as well as expand our team. The Speak Life Foundry exists to help raise up the next generation of evangelists. Could you join us in Eastbourne from this September? Or do you know people who could? It would particularly suit school- or university-leavers with a passion for mission and perhaps also creative gifts. Do spread the word!
In case you missed any of that, we’ve collected all of these resources for you right here!

Coming Up For Speak Life
We’d value your prayers for these upcoming projects and engagements:
Our mission to Felsted School in Cambridgeshire. Paul and Glen are speaking all next week to hundreds of students.
Recruitment to the Foundry, our internship programme developing creative evangelists. Pray for the right people to come forward and be selected.
Special Christmas and Easter projects in development now. They have the chance to reach hundreds of thousands with the good news.
It’s Shrove Tuesday but what does Lent have to say to a culture disconnected from life, death and the body? How can we answer questions about the Bible? And how might embracing the goodness of singleness be a witness to the world?
