Emma explores the concept of Identity and invites us to Look Up for the answer to that question.

Lockdown Sessions

Lockdown Sessions 4 | A Conversation about Hope, Transformation, and Homelessness

Chris Farrelly

This podcast offers a rare and thought-provoking insight into the life and world of Chris Farrelly, CEO of the City Mission. An engaging and deep conversation from someone who has a lot to teach us about life, vocation, and serving those in need around us. We discuss some of the common misconceptions people have towards those in the homeless community and hear stories about what is possible when people are supported and cared for with dignity, respect, and offered another chance at life.

There is also a special announcement about how you can support the City Mission’s vital work by listening to a new song by Neil Finn and Fleetwood Mac on all the usual music platforms!

What impact might this have on our identity and why is that so important? Where does a relationship with God and faith come into this? What practical steps are key to navigating this process well?
