About This Episode
This week, Banning sits down with Havilah Cunnington to discuss her online resource, Truth to Table. We also have a riveting conversation with author and pastor, Jon Tyson, on how to create a life that is free from the pressure of performance, while talking about issues of human pride, violation of the sabbath, and the need to constantly ‘stay busy’ rather than connecting with God in a true and sincere way. Join us this week for an episode that digs deep into our hearts and challenges what society has celebrated.
Liberating Your Life from the Tyranny of Performance and Success
Jon Tyson's exploration of the reverse economy of the kingdom frees his readers from not only having to earn their salvation but also earn their sense of worth. Life is not meant to be a series of competitions or survival of the fittest, yet the dominant voices in our culture scream that we are only as valuable as our popularity, success, status or social recognition.
This book offers another way forward. It shows readers the freedom of Jesus light and easy yoke as opposed to the tyrannical yoke of cultural approval or applause. This is a must-read for those exhausted from having to invent or perform their identity or conjure up a sense of destiny.

We live in a 24/7 culture of endless productivity, workaholism, distraction, burnout, and anxiety--a way of life to which we've sadly grown accustomed. This tired system of "life" ultimately destroys our souls, our bodies, our relationships, our society, and the rest of God's creation. The whole world grows exhausted because humanity has forgotten to enter into God's rest.
by Tony Walsh & Friends (Author), Various Manchester Creative Contributors (Illustrator)
The day after the horrendous Manchester Arena attack, Tony Walsh read his now famous poem 'This Is The Place' at a vigil outside the town hall. Now, over 60 Manchester creatives have collaborated, each taking a line from the poem to inspire unique pieces of art, illustration, design and photography. Their work is now presented in this one-of-a-kind book with proceeds going to charitable causes. The roll call is extensive including world renowned agencies and designers like Peter Saville (New Order, Joy Division, Factory Records designer) and Malcolm Garrett (Buzzcocks designer) and personal messages from Tony Walsh and the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham.
