My name is Sean Tucker. For much of my life I wanted to be a Pastor in a local church, that is until I actually got my wish. By then I realized it wasn't what I was meant to do, I was meant to be a Prophet. I'm always reluctant to use the word 'Prophet' because people always think of some strange guy, attempting to predict the future, or manipulating lots of money out of lonely midweek, TV viewers, but that's not what these guy were, or are, at all. In the Old Testament they were these cantankerous, odd balls who would walk into the courts of the kings and the priests of their day, and point out where they were off track from their God-given mission. Hosea reminded the leaders about fidelity. Amos griped about how the poor and oppressed were being ignored in society. Malachi had a rant about the anemic sacrifices being offered. Jonah's very life was an object lesson in not reducing God's great mission to one elite people group. And these are just a few. In fact, Jesus Himself looks a lot more like these guys than the religious leaders of His day. He holds nothing back in criticizing the institution for where they are off track. Throughout church history there have been a constant stream of prophetic voices. From St Francis of Assissi, to Luther, to Bono they call the institution of the church back to it's purpose, and we need these voices because apparently we're easily distracted. Richard Rohr (one of our contemporary prophetic voices) says that, 'the Church has always needed a 2 party system to keep it honest'. This has been the tension between the priests and the prophets; between the institutional leaders charged with maintaining the status quo, and the loyal dissidents who challenge us to be better. It's like the two reins in His hands which provide the necessary lateral tension to keep us on the right track. In this vein I am offering my voice to the mix of the thousands of prophets through the ages calling the Church back to the good stuff, and away from the distractions. It's hardly a popular calling, but then I suppose if history teaches us anything, I have to be willing to lose some friends and be dropped down some wells if I follow this path. That said, I really have no choice but to continue because this stuff 'burns in my bones', and I think being better at what we do is so much more important than our own comfort. So this is the story of how I Unlearned my Western Christianity, and became a prophetic voice to the Western Church.

Our Betty

Liz Smith, once called the nation's favourite fictional grandmother, is a familiar face to all TV and cinema viewers. She is most often recognised for her role of Nana in The Royle Family and has appeared in numerous productions over the years. OUR BETTY is Liz's life story - from her cosseted yet lonely childhood with her beloved grandparents (her mother died giving birth to Liz's stillborn sibling), through the war with the WRENS, marriage and children, divorce and poverty, long years working in dead-end jobs such as in a plastic bag factory, until her heavenly escape of evening acting classes provided the chance for a career. While working at Hamley's one Christmas ('I was one of those tiresome people who stop you and beg you to try samples of this and that'), she received a phone call from a young director who wanted to make an improvised film. His name was Mike Leigh and the film Bleak Moments. From that point, when Liz was 50, her career took off and she has worked with some of the most famous names in the entertainment business. OUR BETTY is, like its author, original, amusing and fascinating on the struggles, hopes and successes endemic of a life in front of the camera.
