Posted by Ros Clarke, 2 Jun 2020

In this week's episode, Ros Clarke, Amanda Robbie and Lee Gatiss discuss the issues of racism in our churches and society, and the intersection of gospel and politics.

This week on the podcast we’re talking about the problem of racism in the UK, in the Church of England, and in our own hearts. We’re also asking when and how bishops should speak out on political matters, and we have a whole host of recommendations.

Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race, Reni Eddo-Lodge
