What responsibility does the church (particularly the Evangelical church) bare for the state of US public life? In this episode Lisa Sharon Harper sits down for a timely reunion with her coauthors of the book, Forgive Us: Confessions of a Compromised Faith. Join Lisa as she explores the possibility of national healing through the lament and repentance of the church with guests Soong-Chan Rah, Mae Cannon, Troy Jackson.
Good words! I quote your ‘Forgive Us’ book in chapter two of my book ‘The Great Reckoning.’ The chapter is entitled ‘Sins of Church,’ and talks about confessing the oppressive attitudes and actions of Christendom, the power of lament, and is broken down into sections, highlighting that the Church has sinned against: women, people of color, LGBTQ people, the poor, children, the “outsider,” non-christians, the disabled and those suffering from mental illness, and others. Thanks for writing the book! Very powerful.
