We’re delighted to bring you these God who Speaks updates from the Diocese of Clifton:

The Joy of the Gospel

The Clifton Diocese website has a great series of personal reflection videos with a range of people reflecting on what passage in Matthew’s Gospel speaks to them of Joy.

Here’s their first video, with Bishop Crispian Hollis:

Letters from Lockdown

Two of Clifton’s Seminarians, Joseph Meigh and Stuart Ford, have used the lockdown period to create a series of videos based on St. Paul’s letter to the Philippians.

Philippians is very short – only 4 pages long – but is known as one of St Paul’s most joy-filled letters. Perhaps especially it might help us find joy in our current situation of lockdown, because Paul was writing it from his prison cell – so it shows us how that deepest kind of joy wells up from our relationship with Christ which is within us, whatever our external circumstances.
