End of Year Pandemic Joy

The full cast assembles to reflect on, and even celebrate, the long, strange year of 2020.

As 2020 ends and 2021 begins, the entire cast and crew of Mere Fidelity has gathered to examine in their own inimitable way how this year has affected both the church at large and the individual Christian. Matt, Derek, Andrew, and Alastair share their personal experiences of joy and anxiety in 2020, and they offer practical advice on how they have thrived and what their plans are going forward. You’ll also hear an amazing impersonation by Andrew. Thank you for listening and for sharing the joy of Mere Fidelity!

Christ Our Salvation is an edifying and spiritually enriching collection of sermons by the renowned John Webster.
