Politics and religion. Two things you're not supposed to talk about, because whenever people do it seems to end up in arguments๐Ÿ˜ , fights๐Ÿ‘Š and - worst of all - flame wars on social media๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

What you really need is some calm, objective and informed chat from two people who've been in the game long enough to know what they're talking about. Unfortunately, you've got us instead ¯\_(ใƒ„)_/¯

The Holy Political Podcast is a fortnightly podcast about Christianity and politics. We interview some of the most interesting and impressive Christians in UK politics today, discuss political questions affecting Christians, and look at the good, bad and bizarre ways Christians get involved in politics.

It's mainly accurate, somewhat entertaining, and hopefully helpful. Give it a try! ๐ŸŽง๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜

This week we're delighted to play you the talk Prof James KA Smith gave to MPs and Peers at Christians in Parliament's event, looking at how Christians should engage in politics between Jesus' ascension and return.

In recent years, James KA Smith has become perhaps the leading evangelical theologian and philosopher writing on how Christians should think about engaging in society, and specifically politics. He has recently published Awaiting the Kingdom, the third and final instalment of his widely acclaimed Cultural Liturgies series.

Plus, we have to talk about Brexit. Cos that's the law now.
