Saturdays @ 5.30pm
- produced for Premier Radio in partnership with the London District of the Methodist Church
Travellers’ Tales is a half hour interview between Hannah Scott-Joynt and a Christian believer - perhaps well known, perhaps not - about their life/faith journey, and how they’ve experienced God working and moving through all of its twists and turns. It’s a chance for listeners to get an insight into how someone else does their faith, and be inspired by hearing stories of love, dedication, doubt, grace, courage, sacrifice, and hope.
Join Hannah Scott-Joynt for Travellers' Tales with Cardinal Vincent Nichols on Saturday 10 April at 5.30pm
You’ll hear about his awareness of a vocation on the terraces of The Kop at Anfield as a teenager, the shock of going from there into the rarefied atmosphere of the English College in Rome (where his mum sent him the football pages of the Liverpool Echo each week), then his surprise as a young priest in Liverpool when a couple of heavies appeared out of nowhere to accompany him as he took the Blessed Sacrament out for home communion visits….just in case.
His memories of the huge event (the size of which seemed to cause a certain amount of bafflement in Downing Street) that was the visit of Pope Benedict to the UK in 2010.
His musings on what life might have been like if he’d remained a parish priest. And his reflections on the past year of the pandemic, and where he has perceived God in it all.
