It's so easy to miss out on a deeper relationship with God by getting tangled up in all kinds of distractions, or trying to keep Him at an arm's length. But there's no social distancing Jesus if you want to grow in your faith. In this podcast, the guys talk about life as a Christian, evangelism, bible reading ... and scuba?




"If we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased." (26) C.S Lewis
