Stephen Knott is the Archbishop of Canterbury's Appointments Secretary, and deeply involved in finding a successor to follow the Rt Reverend Peter Eagles as the next Bishop of Sodor and Man - he joins us on the programme today to explain his role, and the next stages in the selection process.
And we meet Adam and Cathy Thomas - a couple with deep faith, a love of meeting and working with people in all circumstances, and an appetite for challenges- but what happens when the challenges become almost too much to bear?
In this first part of their life story, there's a lot to interest and inspire - and maybe there are a few surprises too! Adam and Cathy return to the programme next week (20th August) to complete their story
Music this week is from John Michael Talbot, and there's notice board news too
