EP16: Why is God ignoring my prayers?
Maybe you have never prayed to God yourself, or maybe you’ve prayed for years. Most of us sense the desire to pray and even want to develop a better prayer life.

EP15: "Why can't Christians have fun?"
As Lockdown 3.0 finally comes to an end in the UK and everyone seems set to have a summer to remember, it can occasionally feel that there are a long list of things that we can’t participate in. Whether it’s programs that we would like to watch or places we would love to attend, there is potential to be apprehension as to if a Christian can engage. So how then should we navigate what sort of trends, events and parties we should attend?

EP14: "Are Christians expected to never listen to secular music?"
The topic of secular music is one that often elicits a deep divide among Christians. Many Christians would argue that are free to listen to any kind of secular music they choose just as long as it doesn't "affect" them. Others would go as far as to say that under no circumstances should Christians listen to secular music. Our four guests discuss how with all the different music choices we have before us, we determine what type of music beneficial or harmful to our faith. Guests: M.T Omoniyi, Deborah Suen, Samson Makinde and Lisa Collins-Brown

EP13: "Why don't Christians talk about singleness"?
We often view singleness as simply a phase of our lives to exercise patience in. As if marriage is the goal and singleness is just the journey of seeking a partner. However, our four guests discuss how the season of singleness is a wonderful opportunity to use the time, resources and friendships God has blessed you with, to glorify him. Guests: Toye Akinoso, Deborah Suen, M.T Omoniyi and Heike Faith Adex

EP12:"Is there such a thing as Christian dating?"
As the words “courtship” and “dating” are not found in the Bible, everyone seems to have their own principles and guidelines as to how Christians should date. This tends to lead to all sorts of confusion as to what Christian dating looks like and whether or not dating is something Christians should do all together. In this weeks episode, our four guests look at if there is such thing as biblical dating? If so, what is it? And how can Christians think differently about this pervasive issue in media and culture?   Guests: Susana Clapcott, Toye Akinoso, Rufaro Jerahuni, Lisa Collins-Browns   Join the discussion online using #onthetable

We can all agree that forgiveness is central to our experience as Christians. It is at the heart of our relationship with God and our relationship with others.
