The audio diary.
This is the first time that Jude has explored her faith and ideas about Jesus through writing and poetry and the journey through is fascinating to listen to. Threads of ideas come and themes are followed. Some become poems whilst others get booted to the touchline . . . for now.
Listen to diary one.
Fish, Max Clifford and ebay, the ideas are coming, but the task of making them funny is more of a challenge. Jude interviews some friends on their views and has an embarrassing technological moment on a train.
Listen to diary two.
Jesus has broken his metatarsal but Jude isn’t similarly handicapped. Now in the thick of idea development she finds much in today’s culture that help her express what she believes about Jesus. Oh, and she read a bit of the bible too.
NB: all sound recordings were made by Jude (somewhere near a road) with a dictaphone provided by rejesus.
