Irvine Grey has written a unique thesis about the Two by Twos, and today he was interviewed by Seamus Martin on Tipp FM. He is a Baptist and has studied this group in great detail.
This time last year 2012 we received a lot of interest in this group and featured the testimony of a former member. The Director also entered in a dialogue with a worker which currently is dormant, but this interesting conversation between Seamus and Irvine will assist to make a group pretty unknown in Ireland better known to the general public.
Here is our material on this group:
The director received a call from the programme, but was unaware that Irvine had been on. So his interview was a little off topic as he did not have an awareness of what had come before. He tried to focus on the fact that Ireland has very unclear ideas around the issue of Religion. In Ireland the census confuses Religion with a Confession or Denomination of a Religion. It is clear that the media, government and the general public talk about Religion when they are talking about the Christian Religion and they call the Church of Ireland for example a Religion, rather than a Communion, Confession or Denomination of Christianity.
When you have this lack of clarity it is easy to understand why it is difficult to categorise a group like the Two by Two’s.
