Christianity has built the modern world, therefore the problems of this world (as well as their solutions) have a Christian origin. In this episode Glen Scrivener and Paul Feesey discuss 6 elements from Christianity that, when secularised, cause many problems:
The west has inherited secular versions of all these convictions but, divorced from their roots in the gospel, the fruit goes bad.
In this live webinar, Glen interviews Dr. Paul Blackham and Dr Jo Jackson about how to pray for the first time, as part of a series called “Adjusting To The New Normal.” This webinar was recorded live on 8 April, 2020.

There are deep fault lines in our world and the trials of our day are revealing them. But this week at Speak Life we have been lifting up the One whose standards we’re all using, whether we know it or not!
It’s Jesus who has taught the world that rulers should be servants, that they should put themselves under the law, that they should not ‘lord it over’ others but instead sacrifice themselves. It’s Jesus who teaches us that we are all one, whatever our race or social standing. It’s Jesus who says ‘put away the sword, for those who live by the sword will die by the sword.’
Incredibly our world, built by Jesus’ message, still remembers the teaching even if they’ve forgotten the source. Here at Speak Life we long to remind them! And to remind the world that there isn’t just a righteous standard over us, but a loving Saviour who offers to be with us.
Perhaps you can share some of these resources with your friends and family and, during this divided time, point to the Prince of Peace.
In this episode we talk about what everyone is talking about: Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson, that Durham trip, the media and the tidal wave of splenetic rage engulfing the UK! But into that context we discuss the 10 standards which everyone in the west acknowledges, whatever side they take on the culture wars. We’re actually united by certain expectations that we share and these expectations are thoroughly biblical and totally bonkers. They are bonkers, that is, apart from Jesus Christ. He is the one who can come good on all our expectations. He is the one who can heal our divided nations and divided hearts. He is our one hope moving forwards.
