Poema S7 017 | Sarah Bessey & Lisa Sharon Harper on the Rhythm of Prayer

Poema Podcast

Today I'm joined by author & speaker Sarah Bessey, and speaker, author, podcast host and activist Lisa Sharon Harper, to talk about the new collaborative book they've worked on and contributed to, along with many others, 'A Rhythm of Prayer'. We talk about the background to the creation of the book in the context of the events of the last 12 months - global pandemic, the murder of George Floyd, the US Presidential election and the weight this book carries and the message it wants to send us in these times of grief & uncertainty.  We talk about the inspiration for Lisa's own contribution, Sarah's reasons for creating this book and the importance of new liturgies for a new time - and the significance of all of these voices being women.  "A Rhythm of Prayer" is available now at all online booksellers.

Episode 47: Lisa Sharon Harper

Prophetic Resistance Podcast

Welcome to Season 5. We are honored that our first guest of this season is Lisa Sharon Harper. From Ferguson to New York, from Brazil to Germany, Lisa has led trainings and mobilized clergy and community leaders around shared values for the common good, with a focus on racial justice. She is the author of the book The Very Good Gospel, the Founder, and President of Freedom Road, and the host of the Freedom Road Podcast.  In this episode, Lisa describes her search for Shalom ---Shalom being “what the kingdom of God smells like, looks like and what it requires of its citizens.” She and Rev. Michael-Ray Mathews are both Auburn Senior Fellows and their history stretches back a decade. The conversation moves from the redefining of Evangelicalism to the stories of their third great grandmothers, and then the divineness of Black women imagining Beloved Community. There is a lot of joy in their voices, but there’s also pain as our conversation veered into the hard topics of sexual violence, white supremacy, antisemitism, and homophobia. Listeners, be advised.
