Bob Barlow's "Truth"
Special Guest: Candice Curran
Candice was born into Bob Barlow's "truth", and upon leaving sought the opposite of the indoctrination she had lived through. She put herself through a bridging course to make up for the final years of high school that she'd missed, then completed a bachelor degree to become a teacher. Today Candice is proud to educate young people and help them work towards the vocations that best suit their passions and capabilities.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE
There’s a group in regional Queensland that claims to have no name. Members meet in each other’s homes on Wednesdays and Sundays. They don’t have any of their beliefs written down, though they do sing hymns from a particular hymn book. A lot of what they follow sounds incredibly similar to a group that also claimed to have no name but was often referred to as the Two by Twos or The Truth. This one doesn’t have pairs of ‘workers’ who travel around and stay with community members, however. That job was left up to its founder, a man named Robert Barlow.
