    Freedom Road & InVerse Presents: GazaCeasefirePilgrimage.com

    GazaCeasefirePilgrimage.com A Kiwi named James Harris set out with a mustard seed of faith and walked the length of Gaza to fundraise for relief and refugees while calling for a ceasefire.
    The next day he rang me (Jarrod) and asked if I would be interested in doing a walk too. I responded, “Mate, I think the world would be interested!”
    I picked up the phone and soon Lisa Sharon Harper, Suzan Wahhab, Mae Cannon, James Harris and I were all in tears. Not merely because of what is happening but of how the Holy Spirit is moving.
    GazaCeasefirePilgrimage.com was born.
    2 weeks later, *12 counties • 77 cities* have signed up. Come join Dr Drew Hart as he facilitates us hearing the story, learning about the movement and responding to the invitation to transfigure our trauma and put our compassion into action for those who are suffering.

Best Podcast Ever

Out of all the podcasts I’ve listened to over several years, none have matched InVerse in covering a range of topics and guests with such grace and generosity. It’s so good.

If you want to meet people who don’t just talk *about* Jesus, but are actively seeking to embody and live the Way, InVerse has been a wonderful doorway into community.

So Good

Jarrod McKenna and Drew Hart graciously and eloquently challenge the entrenched and hidden assumptions of violent white supremacist Christianity in a way that will open up your heart to the beautiful possibilities of life lived the Jesus Way.
