Christopher Collingwood is an Anglican priest - Canon Chancellor of York Minster, no less. And… he’s a Zen Buddhist teacher. So clearly he knows a thing or two about navigating an evolving faith, and the pushback that can come with it.

So we quiz Chris on his journey, and ponder how, if at all, Zen can help us on our journey of faith reconstruction.

Tim and Jemimah sit down with David to talk through his new album - We Really Existed and We Really Did This. It's a conversation in which David wrestles with faith and theology, and searches for signs of hope in the increasingly chaotic times we live in. As you'd expect from David, it's deeply reflective, insightful and challenging. It's a must listen (even if we do say so ourselves). Go to David's Bandcamp page to get a copy of the album.

Natalie Collins is a gender justice specialist, who speaks, writes and trains on issues of violence against women and wider gender injustice.

In trying to make sense of her own experience of domestic abuse - and the fact that over the course of a lifetime over a quarter of women experience domestic abuse - Natalie began to ask questions about the patriarchal nature of our society (and Church) and how this shapes the way men view women and themselves. 

It’s an honest, insightful and challenging conversation.

If you want to learn more about Natalie’s writing, consultancy and activism, then check out her website, and her book Out of Control: Couples, Conflict and the Capacity for Change.

Rather than based around an interview, this episode is in the style of our Nomad Devotionals, which our patrons enjoy each month.

Ruth Wilde of Christian Peacemaker Teams reflects on the practice of "getting in the way", and John-Philip Newell reflects on a spirituality deeply rooted in the material creation. And we ask what does it look like to become peace makers between humanity and creation? David weaves these reflections together with readings, music and songs.

Martin Newell is a catholic priest who has been arrested over twenty times. His crimes range from  criminal damage, trespass, and burglary, for which he has been to prison several times.

All of this has been the result of Martin’s non-violent protests against the arms trade and more recently the government's inaction on the climate crisis. He believes that now more than ever we need to resist the rules and authorities, as the future of the planet is at stake. 

Not only this, but Martin has formed a community with destitute asylum seekers. 

So we ponder the questions, when is it right to say no to the rulers and authorities? Would we go to prison for our convictions? And how would we go about modelling a community that points to the world to come?

On this episode we speak with theology professor and climate change activist Timothy Gorringe about the climate crisis. Towards the end of last year the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change released a pretty bleak report. In summary, the report said that the situation is much worse than we previously thought, and unless we reduce global carbon emissions to zero by 2050, then by the end of this century the earth will be a very hostile place to live. 

So we ask Prof. Gorringe how we are meant to respond? How can we as individuals radically reduce our carbon footprint? And how can we put pressures on government to move towards creating a carbon neutral society? And we ponder the theology of the potential collapse of human civilisation.

So it’s not the cheeriest of episodes, but there are some signs of hope!

Rather than our usual interview format, in this episode we’re hosting a conversation. We’ll be listening in on Chine McDonald and Azariah France Wiliiams as they discuss their understanding and experience of blackness and how that has shaped their identity, their place in society and the way they relate to God and Church.

It’s an authentic, moving, and inspiring conversation, and it was a real privilege to be able to listen in.

Janet Williams joins us to discuss apophatic theology and spirituality. I know, it doesn’t sound like the most riveting topic. But trust me, it’s essential listening for anyone who’s been through some kind of deconstruction, faith evolution or dark night of the soul, anyone who’s interested in mysticism, or who’s gown tired and disillusioned with the Church’s obsession with trying to tightly define God. It’s a conversation I’m going to be pondering for a long time.

This month is our 10th anniversary, so if you'd like to give us a gift, why not leave us a nice review on iTunes, Apple Podcasts - or whichever podcast app you use - and on our Facebook page.

And for February only, we have a special Patreon promotion. If you sign up to the $10 tier (or move up to the $10 tier from a lower one), we'll send you a Nomad pocket journal, and a couple of Nomad stickers.  

If you're not fussed about the pocket journal, but would like to send us a donation, then you can make a one-off or regular donation through PayPal, the links to which you can find on our support page.

Edwina Gateley is a mystic, and a social activist. Her life has been a rhythm of extended periods of prayer and solitude (including 9 months of silence in a caravan in a forest!) and activism (including establishing a mission agency that has sent hundreds of people into missions work around the world, and working with prostitutes on the streets of Chicago).

Through both her radical activism and deep contemplation Edwina’s understanding and experience of God and Church has been radically challenged and reshaped.   

This is a must listen for anyone wrestling with questions around what Church and mission are, and how we describe and relate to God.
