Ep.16 – Christmas ‘special’



If you thought Christmas was all peace and fairy lights, think again.

In this episode we host a sermon that Dangerous preached. It’s basically ‘Stuff We Don’t Talk about in Church’ – Christmas Edition covering the exciting history of the Magi; the interesting lack of evidence for the Virgin Birth;  ditto the lack of Nativity coverage and ultimately viewing Christmas through the lens of The Great and Dreadful Day of the Lord.


Ep.15 – The Bible (part 2)



In this episode BT and Dangerous discuss how they use the Bible, what it means to them and, more importantly how the Holy Spirit uses it. With that in mind they ponder when, if and how we open up the Bible to new converts. Are there black and white answers in the Good Book or is it a tool of the Holy Spirit that means different things to different people?


Ep.14 The Bible (part 1)



In this episode, Cirque du Sola Scriptura, the gents look at whether the Bible is reliable. Paul tells Timothy that all scripture is ‘God-breathed’ and that’s often used to prove Biblical inerrancy (ack of errors), but can we really use the Bible to argue the Bible’s reliability? Can we show Biblical reliability in other ways? Even without inerrancy? And what can the late, great cricketer Donald Bradman teach us (And can we teach all Bible studies through analogies with his life?)

Ep.13 The Greatest Novel Never Written



It’s Bible month here at unspokenchurch with both our podcasts taking a gander at the Good Book. Rather than get tangled up in Biblical dating (the historical type, not the fun type) we thought we’d re-record a light-hearted talk Dangerous gave on the topic. It’s a sort of prologue, or scene setter, if you will. Also mighty useful against those that tell you the Bible is made up to control people…


Ep.12 The Milk Podcast (episode 1)



Not a normal episode from the guys this week; instead we’re highlighting our new, limited run, podcast, Milk. It’s taking a look at Christianity Basics from the same eyes as the ‘Stuff’ podcast, rooting around and seeing where we might have added our own traditions into the very basics of our religion.

New episodes won’t appear on this feed, but if you’re interested you can search up ‘Milk’ or ‘unspokenchurch’ on iTunes or wherever you get podcasts from and subscribe from there. And from our blog site, of course.


Ep.11 Women and Jesus



Completing the ‘Women’ trilogy ‘Dangerous’ and Lenae look at how Jesus treated women and how his female followers impacted the early church. They also delve into men’s and women’s ministries; female apostles (or lack thereof); the origins of marriage and nuns. Plus Samurais and how to bathe a baby.

(apologies that a little of Dangerous’s audio is clipped; it’s not the recording, but his lack of microphone skill…)

Ep.10 Women in Leadership



In this episode, Pauline Theology, ‘Dangerous’ and Lenae dissect the verses that are used to argue that women should not hold leadership roles, or only specific ones. Basically the idea that women can’t teach men as espoused in in 1 Timothy 2, but, as ever, they drift into other exciting topics such as Biblical inerrancy and comics.

Ep.8 Communion (part 2)



In this episode, ‘Holy Communion, Batman!’, the lads talk about their personal experiences of Communion. How do we do it? What do we think about? How do we use it as a spiritual milestone? Are we too sombre, or not sombre enough? Also is not taking Communion seriously bad for your health?

Ep. 7 Communion (part 1)



Do you know why we do Communion? Did you know that Communion is linked to Passover? Or that, according to John, it’s not? Or the difference between Communion and the Eucharist? Also what exactly are snags and a tinny and are they heretical?

Ep. 6 Singing (part 2)



In this untitled episode we chat over praise Vs worship (is there a difference?); being led by the spirit and asking: do we consume worship? There seem to be a lot of opinions/complaints about the songs we sing, how we sing them. Is there a right way? Also a loverly tangent on whether singing in the shower counts as worship…

Apologies from Dangerous who (obviously) had a cold during recording…
