Ex-Gays on BBC Radio 4 Today Programme – Wednesday Morning

Via Anglican Mainstream

On BBC Radio 4 Today programme on Wednesday March 21 Robert Piggott, the BBC Religion Correspondent will be interviewing James Parker of the Journey into Manhood training programme from the People can Change Organisation. Parker contends that it is unwise of the government to bring in legislation about homosexuality when it does not have a full understanding of homosexuality and the possibility of change. This will be between 7.10 a.m. and 9.a.m. GMT, but not between 0800 and 0830.

As far as I know this is a British media first. An ex-gay representative has never been on a leading news programme before AND the style of Piggott’s interviewing and reporting means that Parker will be able to get his message across. I’ll try and post a link as soon as the recording is on the BBC website.

Update – It looks as though the segment will be broadcast at 0830 GMT this morning.

Christ the King
Eternal Father, whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven that he might rule over all things as Lord and King: keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace, and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet; who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Two Final Things

Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort

No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
