The Psalmist's Struggles
Hi! Welcome to the Moss Valley Pod. Today, we're going to be diving into the Psalms. They're full of real life adventures and writings committed to paper as people were working through the situations that daily life had thrown at them. For this episode, we're going to hear Psalm 139. There will also be the answers to last weeks' Brain of the Week, plus a new quiz to get the brain working over half term.

Overcoming Obstacles
Welcome once again to the Moss Valley Pod, recorded in Eckington, Derbyshire, UK. As I record this, we're about to be categorised as a "High Risk Covid Area" and subject to some new restrictions. In this episode, I'll offer a thought or two about this, alongside the answers to last week's Brain of the Week and a new quiz for this coming week. We're also rejoining St Paul on his journey from Jerusalem to Rome. He's being carried by ship - something that was incredibly dangerous at the time. What might happen to him? Will he arrive safely? We'll find out from Acts 28:1-16. Material in this podcast is taken from “New Patterns for Worship” and "Common Worship: Times and Seasons". They are copyright © The Archbishops’ Council (2008 and 2006 respectively). Last weeks' Brain of the Week was part of the Numeracy Day on 16 May 2018.

In today's episode, we catch up again with the apostle Paul. We hear of his travels back towards Jerusalem. He stops in various places, meeting with the churches and congregations that he has previously visited. As we hear Acts 21:1-16, we'll discover what role a belt had in Paul's journey.

Lancelot Andrewes
Hi, and welcome once again to the Moss Valley Pod. Today, the church remember Lancelot Andrewes. He was bishop of Chichester, Ely and Winchester before he died on this day in 1626. As a bishop, he was a leader within the church. What can we learn from him about leadership today? We also have the answers to last week's Brain of the Week quiz, plus a new set of questions for you to be busy with over the next seven days.

Glory!
In today's episode of the Moss Valley Pod, we're going to be considering glory. It's something that we associate with winning sports teams, acts of heroism or successful entrepreneurs. But, what does biblical glory look like? And what difference might it make to our understanding of glory? We'll find out from Mark 10:35-45. There's also a collective noun themed Brain of the Week to get stuck in to. Material in this podcast is taken from “New Patterns for Worship” and "Common Worship: Times and Seasons".

St Cyprian
What does St Cyprian and some sheep have in common? No, this is not a cheesy counting sheep joke. As bishop of Carthage, Cyprian had responsibility for looking after the Christians in the city, often referred to as his flock. It's why bishops carry a shepherds crook. We'll be learning more about Cyprian and hearing more about sheep from Ezekiel 34:11-16. There's also the answers to this week's Brain of the Week. How did you get on?

On Your Marks...
Welcome to this racing themed edition of the Moss Valley Pod. Don't worry - I'm not going to get you up and about racing against other people. We will, however, be having a think about Paul's words to the church in Corinth. He likens life to a race and wants to win the prize at the end of it. What prize? We'll find out from 1 Corinthians 9.16-19, 22-end. There's also the prize of being Brain of the Week too.

The Birth of Mary
Today is a celebration day within the church. In both eastern and western churches, we remember the birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We'll be having a think about plans throughout life. We'll consider God's big plan and our place within it. We'll also think about where we might fit in with the plan. Of course, there's also the answers to last Friday's Brain of the Week.

Vulnerability, Fear and Trust
Welcome to episode 60 of the Moss Valley Pod. We're continuing our journey through Acts at the moment, and pick up a few days after the story from Friday's pod.

Justice Delivered?
In this episode, we pick up just after Stephen's defence at the Sanhedrin has finished. He's told the story of the people of Israel, but the crowd certainly didn't like the ending. What would happen? We shall hear from Acts 7:54-8:3. As part of the story, we'll also get introduced to a character that we're going to learn a lot about over the upcoming weeks. Also, as it's nearly the weekend, it must be tome for Brain of the Week. Get those grey cells ready...

You're Nicked!
Whilst perhaps inspired by them, this episode is sadly not from an 80s Cop drama. Instead, it's the words that might have been said by the leaders of the Temple in Jerusalem. Why? Because, in their eyes, the disciples Peter and John were up to no good. We'll find out what got them into such trouble from Acts 4:1-12. We also have the answers to last Friday's music themed Brain of the Week. Material in this podcast is taken from “New Patterns for Worship” and "Common Worship: Times and Seasons".

What should I do?
Sometimes we know what to do, sometimes not so much. Today, the crowd listens to a sermon from Peter. The crowd ask him, "What should I do?" We'll find out from Acts 2:37-end.

The HR Nightmare
Welcome to a nightmare situation for Human Resources departments all over the world. You see, today Peter and the 10 remaining disciples are selecting a replacement for Judas.

Walking Down the Street
Today on the Moss Valley Pod, we're going for a walk.

What might happen as they walk along? We'll find out in Luke 24:13-35. There's also the next Brain of the Week to find. This week, the questions are all about literature.

The Criminals
Over the last week or so, we've been hearing different parts of the story of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, teaching and trial. In this episode, we hear from Luke 23:26-43, where we hear the soldiers take Jesus and crucify him. What might this teach us about forgiveness for today?

Half Century
We've made it! A half century of episodes of the Moss Valley Pod. Thank you so very much to all our listeners and contributors - I very much appreciate you all. In this episode, our reading is taken from Luke 22:31-38. Jesus and his disciples are at the Last Supper, the evening before Jesus' death on the cross. He's giving the disciples, and Peter in particular, one last pep talk about the events of the next few hours and also the time beyond. What might this mean for us today? We'll also have the answers to last Friday's Brain of the Week quiz. Material in this podcast is taken from “New Patterns for Worship” and "Common Worship: Times and Seasons".

St Mary Magdalene, St James and Bridget of Sweden
You find us today between two church festivals. On Wednesday 22nd July, the church commemorated Mary Magdalene; on Saturday 25th, it will commemorate the apostle James. These two people were central to Jesus' ministry: James was one of the 12 disciples and Mary the first witness to Jesus' resurrection. During this episode, we welcome Rachel back to the pod to reflect on our reading, which is Luke 8.1-3. There's also some shout outs, including to teachers past and present, and the next instalment of Brain of the Week, themed around science and nature.

What matters most?
In today's episode, we hear Jesus' words about the upcoming destruction of the temple. Many of his listeners would not have been able to believe that this building, the centre of their world, could possibly be destroyed. How could this be? What happened? You can find the story in Luke 21.5-19. We'll also be thanking all those who work in our schools and sharing the answers to this weekend's Brain of the Week.

Paying Tax
They say that there are two guaranteed things in life: taxes and death. Today, we hear a story from Luke 20.20-26 in which Jesus is asked about whether people should pay tax to the emperor. It's a question that can be answered in one word, but is a little trickier if the people asking it are setting a trap. How will Jesus answer? I'll also be letting you know about re-opening the church for a Sunday service on 2 August from 9:30am at St Peter and St Paul's Church, Eckington. If you wish to come along, do please let us know. There's also Brain of the Week, looking back over the last school year. Material in this podcast is taken from “New Patterns for Worship” and "Common Worship: Times and Seasons".

Get Out!
In this episode, we hear the story of Jesus kicking out the money changers from the Temple in Jerusalem. Quoting Isaiah from the Old Testament, he calls the temple a "Den of Thieves." Nice. But, What might it mean for us today? We welcome Rachel back to the Pod to reflect on Luke 19.41-end. I'll also be announcing some details about the reopening of the churches in Eckington and Ridgeway as we move towards something that looks a bit more "normal" - whatever that means. There's also the answers to Friday's "Brain of the Week," all about countries and their capital cities.

The Man in the Tree
Welcome to this episode of the Moss Valley Pod. Today, we hear the story of a small man. As well as having the Micky taken for being small, he also had a job that people would hate him for - he worked for the Tax Office. When Jesus comes through, he's pushed to the back of the crowd, so wouldn't be able to see. What would happen next? We'll find out from Luke 19.1-10. There's also the next Brain of the Week for you to have a go at. Material in this podcast is taken from “New Patterns for Worship” and "Common Worship: Times and Seasons".

Who do you think you are?
No, I'm afraid this isn't an episode of the popular BBC TV show! Nor is it heard from the terraces of football stadiums: "Who are ya?" Instead, it's the question that Jesus asks through one of the parables he tells his listeners today. Our reading actually contains two parables: one about an unjust judge and another about two people who head to the temple to pray. The reading can be found in Luke 18.1-14. There is also a couple of community thank you's and the answers to Friday's Brain of the Week.

Doubting Thomas
Today is the day when the church commemorates "doubting" Thomas. As such, we'll hear the story of his doubts and disbelief of Jesus' resurrection until he meets Jesus himself. We all have doubts throughout life, but what might we learn? There's also a new and exciting Brain of the Week to keep the grey cells active over the weekend.

Dinner Time!
In this 40th episode of the pod, we listen to Jesus explaining the Kingdom of God. He uses the imagery of a banquet to help his listeners, including us, to understand what God's Kingdom is all about. It leaves us with some choices to make - do we want to go? The reading is Luke 14.12-24. We also welcome Rachel to the Pod once again. I'll be asking her a bit about what she's up to, before she set's this weeks' Brain of the Week quiz to get our grey cells working over the weekend.

Mary, Martha and Jesus
We all think we know the story so very well. Martha is busy in the kitchen whilst Mary is listening to Jesus. Martha gets annoyed and asks Jesus to get Mary to help. Jesus says no. But, is this just a story about busyness versus piety? Could there be something else going on? We shall find out as we reflect on Luke 10.38-end. We've also go a little bit of news about the church re-opening (but please don't get too excited as it's not quite yet) plus the answers to Friday's Brain of the Week.

Promises
Promises. We all make them. We all certainly get tempted to break them at times. But, what might God do when He makes promises to His people? And, what might this mean for us as we make promises? We'll find out as we listen to and reflect on Ezekiel 36.22–28. There will also be the next Brain of the Week and a few words of encouragement for all those who work in and around schools.

V.E. Day
Today, 8 May 2020, marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day. For many, this would have been a day of celebration - the War in Europe was finally won. For others, the dread continued. Soldiers were still fighting against the Japanese. And then, there are those who have experienced tragedy - of losing a loved one, of carrying with them the horrors of war, of experiencing the pain of warfare. Today, we pause to reflect. We hear the words of the prophet Micah looking forward to the day when wars would be over. We will pray the prayers that were used in Westminster Abbey when the war was finished. We will also observe the 2 minute silence. There's also some community notices and the next Brain of the Week competition.

John the Baptist
In this edition of the Moss Valley Pod, we hear the story of the beginning of John the Baptist's ministry from Luke 3.1-14. He had a message for people all over the area; people travelled long distances through the hot desert to listen to him. I wonder what he'd have made of podcasting! There's also a few shout outs and the answers to the Brain of the Week quiz. Oh, and while I'm thinking about Brain of the Week, I said that the questions had all come from a book. They came from "The Ultimate Bible Fact and Quiz Book" by Martin Manser. I couldn't find it on the Publishers' website, but a newer edition is available from Amazon.

Gabriel Meets Mary
Hello from the Moss Valley Pod. We hope you, your family and friends are all well. Today, we think about the angel Gabriel visiting Mary. I know it's a story from nearer Christmas than it is just now (due to the joy of the lectionary), but might it teach us something about today? We also hear about Dexter's fundraising efforts. You can help exceed his £500 target (although I think he can make it to £1000) by donating through his Just Giving page. Then, I know you've all been waiting for the Brain of the Week answers, so here they are. We hope you enjoy listening to the Moss Valley Pod.
