Prophetic Resistance Podcast

Welcome to the Prophetic Resistance podcast hosted by Rev. Michael-Ray Mathews. Grounded in our diverse faith traditions, we are exploring what it means to embody love in the face of fear, to show up like hope in seasons of despair, to stand ready to be light in the darkness and water in a parched land. In each episode, we are learning from the stories, traditions, and wisdom of our beloved community of freedom-fighters, justice-seekers, and faith leaders. And together, we are investigating how – in this moment – leaders of faith and moral courage can cultivate prophetic resistance rooted in revolutionary love.
