This week’s offerings of sermon, podcast and reading/reflection, ready for Sunday June 14.
Families Gospel video
Released every Tuesday; a short video for children and households, based on the Gospel reading for the upcoming Sunday. This Gospel message from a senior member of clergy is short, simple and hopefully shareable!
Podcast Episode 6 and 7
This week there’s so much going on, we have two podcasts – in episode 6, Bishop Rachel Treweek is joined by Suzy Diamond-White of HMP Eastwood Park, to discuss the problems facing the female inmate cohort in these times. This recording was made a month ago, and since it was made, women in prison have still not had face-to-face contact with their children. The second podcast this week is episode 7 – Bishop Rachel enters into conversation with four Christians who are black in the Diocese of Gloucester – Rumbi, Ade, Simi and Suki – two adults and two young people, about the impact of Covid-19, the murder of George Floyd and our failures as a Church regarding racial justice.
