Revs Tom and Jamie are joined by the Rev'd Dr Bernard Randall for the second half of this special episode. In this first half, we discuss John 3:16-21 and what it tells us about lies and truth in the modern world, Dominic Cummings' latest foray into public life, vaccine efficacy, how to pray, the "COVID pantomime", cognitive behavioural therapy and the NHS's "biggest data grab in history".
In the second half, Bernard Randall tells us the story of how he was attacked and fired from his job as chaplain of Trent College for preaching a sermon on critical thinking and making up your own mind. And we discuss many of the implications of this sad turn of events.
