God Is Not Absent - Vanessa Ye( 0:26:15)       
Episode Information
Vanessa Ye’s faith journey starts with her parents, who grew up Buddhist, but decided to take Vanessa to church to instil her with good values. Vanessa wasn’t a “bad” kid growing up, so it was hard for her to understand why she needed Jesus. But Vanessa shares the brokenness within her and genuine desire for God that she realised at university. She shares what it’s been like to know Jesus, who isn’t some distant, unrelatable, ancient figure to her, but a friend, a father, a teacher and more.

God Is Not Absent - Emily Close( 0:29:39)       
Episode Information
Join us as Emily Close and I discuss where she’s seen God move in her life. Emily is hilarious, and deeply honest. Her story isn’t a perfectly polished trajectory of how God saved her. It’s raw and confusing and heartbreaking and side-splittingly funny. It’s real. And it’s the kind of story that God has, for all of us.

God Is Not Absent - Jasper van der Meer( 0:29:27)       
Episode Information
Jasper van der Meer joins us to share God’s impact in his life and leadership. For Jasper, realising God’s presence wasn’t a dramatic moment. It was a conversation with a mate, it was in the small silences of the day, in the hard weeks God carried him and in a timely covid positive test. In a world so focused on the ‘extraordinary’, Jasper offers a refreshing perspective - Maybe we could all open our eyes a little wider, recognising that in every moment, even the ordinary, God is not absent.
