The Prophetic Resistance Podcast travels the country to talk to our beloved community of freedom-fighters, justice-seekers and faith leaders. We are asking how - in this moment - leaders of faith and moral courage can cultivate prophetic resistance rooted in revolutionary love.
Episode 48: Rabbi Mordechai Liebling
Today’s guest is Rabbi Mordechai Liebling. Mordechai is a lifelong co-laborer in the multi-faith movement for justice. He founded and directed the social justice organizing program at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College just outside Philadelphia. Currently, he co-labors with POWER, the Faith in Action affiliate in Pennsylvania, directing their reflection and renewal process. Recently, he joined the national board of directors of Faith in Action. Rabbi Liebling is a mentor and teacher to many and he was part of the community of leaders who helped develop the Theology of Resistance, which became the basis for this podcast. In this episode, we talk about his upbringing as the child of Holocaust survivors and the values of faith-based organizing. And in the face of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, Racism, and Christian cultural privilege, Mordechai offers hope for those who wish to cultivate our multi-faith solidarity and deepen the practice of Beloved Community.

Episode 47: Lisa Sharon Harper
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.
