The Episode | One Fifty : Faith is like this...
There are no atheists in foxholes and the truth is that we all find ourselves in foxholes from time to time. We are all fighting a battle that is known only to you and God. It is in that situation where the true state of our belief begins to show.
- Connor Gwin
Not many of us get through life without praying that things could be different. But what do you do when God isn’t listening? Is it possible that he’s just not there? or worse? That he is there but he just doesn’t care. Does our anger at God’s silence draw us into a more honest and authentic relationship with God, or does it feel wrong to be angry with God so we just give up and walk away?

“We don’t have to please God in any other way than to be brutally honest; that is the root not only to a relationship with God but the root to a great song . . . or any work of art of merit.” — Bono
The Psalms are the prayer book and the song book of the Bible. This collection of ancient poetry, sometimes described as the "gut of the Bible", takes on an authentic journey of the human relationship with God - from the highest highs, to the darkest depths.
It is here, in these poems, songs and prayers that we are dragged into the reality of being human before God. The Psalms in their stark honesty guide us beyond just talking about God by showing us how to talk to God.
