    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.

**My favorite theological podcast **

This podcast *and community* have played the biggest role in my evolution as a Jesus follower— from one who was taught to “swallow” biblical interpretation without questioning or doubts to one who is beginning to “chew” it through critical thinking and kind & curious examining of the soul. This changes everything folks ✨ Come join!

Gives me life and infuses me with hope

I probably can’t overstate what Inverse is for me at this moment. In a time when I feel like I am barely holding on to my faith, this podcast always draws out those brimming hopeful tears that sting your eyes when something is unexpectedly and breathtakingly beautiful. As I reject the misogyny and white supremacy upon which what I knew as Christianity was built, you guys are helping recover and rebuild something truly glorious.

Always challenged and encouraged

I don’t exactly remember how I first connected to this podcast, but I am glad I did. I have found the non-violent atonement theory podcast episodes to be encouraging, challenging and helpful in my understanding of atonement. Grateful for the voices that are helping me hear a reading of scripture that is taking me forward.
