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.

#14 Sarah Bessey on the Scarcity Mindset and Having an Expectant Heart

Plucking Up with Liz Bohannon

Sarah Bessey is the author of the best-selling and critically-acclaimed books “Jesus Feminist” and “Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith.” She’s a sought-after speaker at conferences, churches, and universities around the world.  I love this conversation because Sarah is so brutally honest about her journey as a writer. She literally lived to tell the horrors of rejection from book agents and peers — essentially telling her that she wasn’t going to get a book deal! In this episode, we talk about all of that, plus what it means to have expectations versus being expectant. Bonus: I also get a little personal about my faith and my own struggles about labels. -- Love the podcast? Rate and leave us a review!
