We live in a world of extreme polarization. We are constantly bombarded with opinions and arguments. As a result, church culture can become segregated from the rest of the world. But Jesus walked on both sides of the dividing line. He spoke with religious people, and he ate with town rejects. What if God´s truth is somewhere between the division? Unbalanced takes a close look at what we´ve separated over, what the church has gotten right and wrong, and where Jesus stands in the middle of it all.

LESS Fake; LESS Truth.Truth is a tricky thing. Today, ‘the truth’ is not just hard to swallow; it is something we refuse to swallow. Truth is too certain, too divisive, too arrogant. In response, today’s truth is often one of relativism: what’s true for you might not be true for me. But if it’s sometimes true and sometimes not, is it really truth at all? Jesus claimed to be ‘the way and the truth and the life’. But can we really accept this ultimate truth in an age of questioning, uncertainty, relativism and scepticism? In MORE, young philosopher Kristi Mair explores whether Christians can be confident in the ‘truth’ in our ´anything goes´ age. About the author: Graduating from Birmingham University in philosophy and theology, Kristi has since completed an MA in philosophy of religion and ethics and is now embarking on her PhD. Alongside academia, Kristi has worked with Friends International as a ‘Reach’ volunteer, as a student worker at her local church and UCCF as their Assistant Team Leader for the Midlands. She now works as Pastoral Support and Research Fellow at Oak Hill College. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kristi Mair.

A daughter’s moving search to understand her mother, Carolyn Scott - once a bridesmaid to Princess Grace and one of the first Ford models - who later in life spent years living in a homeless shelter. Nyna Giles was picking up groceries at the supermarket one day when she looked down and saw the headline on the cover of a tabloid: ´´Former Bridesmaid of Princess Grace Lives in Homeless Shelter´´. Nyna was stunned, shocked to see her family’s private ordeal made so public - the woman mentioned on that cover, Carolyn Scott Reybold, was her mother. Nyna’s childhood had been spent in doctor’s offices. Too ill, she was told, to go to school like other children, she spent nearly every waking moment at her mother’s side at their isolated Long Island estate or on trips into the city to see the ballet. The doctors couldn’t tell her what was wrong, but as Nyna grew up, her mother, who’d always seemed fragile, became more and more distant. Now, Nyna was forced to confront an agonizing realization: She barely knew the woman on the magazine in front of her. She knew that her mother had been a model after arriving in New York in 1947, living at the Barbizon Hotel, where she’d met the young Grace Kelly and that the two had become fast friends. Nyna had seen the photos of Carolyn at Grace’s wedding, wearing the yellow bridesmaid gown that had hung in her closet for years. But how had the seemingly confident, glamorous woman in those pictures become the mother she knew growing up - the mother who was now living in a shelter? In this powerful memoir of friendship and motherhood, Nyna Giles uncovers her mother’s past to answer the questions she never knew to ask. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nyna Giles.
