Episode Four: Mobilisation of the Church with Euan Mcfee
Episode Four of A Pilgrims Podcast is in conversation with Euan McFee, an experienced ecologist and lifelong Christian who sheds light on the mobilisation of the Church in England. He speaks are hard truth that perhaps a lot of Christian leaders need to face which may also provide hope and begin rekindling the relationship between those of us who still hold Christianity as a whole with disregard. Could this be the beginning of a generation recognising the truth and love that rests at the centre of faith and mobilise a force so large in number that reformation could be just round the corner?

Episode 3: A Journey into Agroecology with Sophie Carrell
Episode 3 elevates the voice a powerful young woman, Sophie Carrel, who is on the ground working the land using agroecological principles at Holifield Farm Project, Gweek, Cornwall. Sophie expresses honestly about her journey into getting to where she is today, a journey which I am sure resonates with a majority of us and is ultimately a call to all of us to step out into the world and act in new ways and come together to work towards a better world regardless of what our minds are telling us.
