I had a lovely Sunday afternoon catching up with old friends in Wardley again, and this is the talk I gave at the eucharist service. I picked up on the threads of the Romans 12 segment from last week's podcast, cheerfully stealing Nat's comments as well as expanding on mine. The subject of renewal and transformation of mind/spirit as Christian is an easy one to talk about and say inspiring things about. But when it comes to really putting it into practice, well, that's where the real work is.

It went down well, and also served to set up my second live run-through of the talk on Christian Ethics and the Gospel of the Human Jesus that I gave at the Living Faith Study Day back in December. I added a couple of new bits, and restored some of the cuts I'd made to the LF day talk in order to get it in under 20 minutes. The video for the LF days studies is still in the pipeline, but I recorded the Wardley version too, just in case I ever get the time to turn it into a proper video (or, at least, publish it to this podcast feed).
