Vlogcast: Interview with Rob Calder

The video edition of the forty-ninth episode of the Great Deep Podcast Series is an interview with the Rev Rob Calder.

Rob (Ryan’s dad) has served as an ordained minster in the Presbyterian church for 44 years. He is a preacher, counsellor and teacher as well as a long-time Comrades Marathon runner.

In this episode, Rob answers some questions around lamenting to God. Questions such as ‘Why do bad things happen to good people?’; ‘Why does God allow certain people into government/power?’; and ‘Why are there times when God seems silent to prayers?’.
