Speaking out for change

May 9, 2010

It's been a busy election period for Ekklesia's staff, associates and contributors. This weekend, the thinking and action continues with the www.takebackparliament.com/hope initiative - and participation in a range of BBC programmes.

On Sunday, co-directors Jonathan Bartley and Simon Barrow are in action on both television and radio. Jonathan is contributing to the BBC Radio 4 Sunday programme, discussing the fallout from the election with Lord Harries. Then at 10am he is on BBC1's 'The Big Questions' as a studio guest, talking about electoral and political reform, inclusion in schools, and whether kids are born good or bad. He also has a column upcoming in The Church Times.

Meanwhile, Simon will be talking about ethical priorities in the post-election period on BBC Radio Ulster's highly-rated 'Sunday Sequence' programme (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b007cphf), hosted by William Crawley. He is also writing for the Baptist Times this week, and has a column on reform and reaction coming up in Third Way, the magazine of Christian cultural and social comment.

You can hear or watch BBC programmes through 'listen again' and iPlayer facilities on the corporation's website (http://www.bbc.co.uk/).
