Welcome to the Prophetic Resistance Podcast, hosted by Rev. Michael-Ray Mathews. We travel the country talking to our beloved community of freedom-fighters, justice-seekers and faith leaders. Grounded in our diverse faith traditions, we are exploring what it means to embody love in the face of fear and to show up like hope in seasons of despair. Refusing to be chaplains to the logic and impulse of Empire, we choose to be prophets of the resistance.
