LRR Ep01: A Very Good Gospel, Lisa Sharon Harper

"It’s not possible to say that you are under the Kingdom of God if you are ok with the image of God being crushed in your land"

Welcome to the first episode of the Love Rinse Repeat Podcast. A podcast hosted by Liam Miller aiming to bring together fun interviews with dope theologians, practitioners, artists, and churchy folk. This first episode features an interview with Lisa Sharon Harper, Chief Church Engagement Officer at Sojourners and author of The Very Good Gospel: How Everything Wrong Can Be Made Right.

This is a fun, inspiring, impassioned, and illuminating interview. Lisa walks her discovery that what she thought was good news wasn't good enough to those who've suffered under oppression and injustice and the journey to find a thicker good news. We talk shalom, examples of communities embodying the kingdom, the image of God, colonisation, and more.
