James Prescott is an author, podcaster, and Twitter boss (he’s always thought-provoking which I admire a great deal). Today, James shares the story of the trauma and grief he suffered by his mother’s sudden hospitalization as a child. When she returned to the family, her faith strengthened his but when she died years later, James began to ask God some questions. James shares his contemplative journey and why he started the Poema podcast. His story reminds us that it’s okay to ask God questions because He often uses them to mature us into his image.

Stories James shared: The season of grief as we endure a pandemic The two responses to grief Growing up in a Christian family in the Methodist The moment his mom woke up after a coma Being more interested in Jesus after his mom’s injury Making a decision at 15 to follow Jesus Growing in discipleship as a college student Questioning God after his mom died Finding a new community that allowed him to ask his questions His changing theological beliefs Finding a more contemplative expression of his faith The transcendent moment during a Taizé service Starting his podcast Poema Great quotes from James: This God I believe in is not big enough for me.

Poema S6 020 | The 200th - Becky Castle Miller Interviews James Prescott
Today it's the 200th episode of the podcast, and to celebrate my beloved friend and former guest Becky Castle Miller interviews me! We discuss all sorts of things, with some challenging and honest questions like - What do I believe & the role of Jesus in my life - The unhealthiest point in my personal journey, how I got to the healthiest...and the bits in-between. - Why and how did I start the podcast, and my all-time favourite guests. And on a lighter note, there's a few lighting rounds involving Doctor Who (obviously), favourite books, favourite kind of tea, and more. This episode was such a joy, and I'm so grateful to Becky for asking such great questions, and to all of you for listening every week, you make this all possible. Onwards...
