Paul Clark visits Witness contributor Philly Barwise, who has selected a couple of her favourite clips and explains why they resonated with her.

An artist from Derry, Philly has chosen to go back to University to be a teacher, as her four children have grown up a bit, with such a hectic life she watches Witness on occasion on a Sunday and finds it refreshing to meet real people who she can identify with. This leads her to her first choice, Eileen Curran, whose message is about appreciating people whilst we still have them and finding peace knowing that even after they pass, you will meet again.

Next is Owen Donnelly, who believes that we often take greater care of our cars than we do our bodies. His advice is that it is not vain to look after ourselves, as the "body is essential to the christian message" and that we really should treat our body like a temple.

Other contributors include Billy Stainsby who speaks about how both partners need to serve each other in a marriage and Ralph Sheppard who while using an analogy about ducks, makes reference to the need for a mixing of beliefs and ideals in society
