people on the edge of his pain
During Lent 2010 we reflected upon People on the Edge of His Pain, which continued our partnership with BBC Radio. We looked at some of the key characters in the Passion narratives and considered issues of today that resonate with these characters, using study material available to download (below).
Each week began with Sunday Worship on BBC Radio 4 (0810-0850), complemented by additional programmes on the Daily Service (0945-1000 BBC R4 LW), and Sunday morning BBC local radio programmes carried special items based on the themes of the course.
