Factsheet for Sunday 3rd February 2013
Pam Rhodes meets people who believe they have encountered angels and introduces some popular angelic hymns.
Here is some background information on the contributors that appeared on this week's programme;
Roy Godwin was travelling with his wife and children on a road through a dense forest one frosty night in December 1981 when he crashed with another vehicle who was travelling on the wrong side of the road. His family were removed from the car and taken off to hospital but Roy was trapped in the damaged vehicle with major injuries. Suddenly a strange figure came through the forest and sat down beside him on the passenger seat. The encounter was unusual, not least because of the unusual words the stranger spoke and Roy believes that the mysterious figure might have been an angel.
DR PAULA GOODER
Dr Paula Gooder is a freelance writer and lecturer in Biblical Studies. She explains the origin of the word “angel” and explores the potential different meanings of the word in both the Old and New Testaments. She also ponders why Christians today often don’t talk about angels despite being surrounded by depictions of them in stained glass windows in many churches. Finally she reveals her own beliefs about what constitutes an angelic encounter.
WALLACE AND MARY BROWN
Wallace Brown felt called by God to leave his leafy parish in Leicestershire and continue his ministry on a council estate in Birmingham. So he became the vicar of St Boniface’s Church in Quinton. But he and his wife Mary soon discovered that a violent gang gathered every day around the walls of the church. After several months, they were finding life there very difficult but Mary felt that God was calling them to pray for guardian angels to protect the walls of the church, so they did – with seemingly miraculous results.
Lorna Byrne says she has seen angels since she was a tiny child and has written several books about her experiences including “Angels in my Hair”. She describes how angels appear to her and how she believes that everyone, no matter what their religion or what sort of person they are, has their own guardian angel.
