Panel #3 – Faith and the Complexities of a Volatile World
(Saturday December 9th at 5:30)
Corey Nathan is a collaborator who works with people across religious, political and social divides to help understand and repair some of our culture’s rancor. This springs from his personal background, having been raised in an observant Jewish household before becoming a Born-again Christian in his late 20s. This unique trajectory required engaging in fraught conversations about religion with his family as well as strained discussions in the church about politics. Over the last several years, a growing audience has been enjoying the engaging, provocative and fun conversations about these subjects on the podcast Corey hosts, Talkin’ Politics & Religion Without Killin’ Each Other.
From Ferguson to New York, and from Germany to South Africa to Australia, Lisa Sharon Harper leads trainings that increase clergy and community leaders’ capacity to organize people of faith toward a just world. A prolific speaker, writer and activist, Ms. Harper is the founder and president of FreedomRoad.us, a consulting group dedicated to shrinking the narrative gap in our nation by designing forums and experiences that bring common understanding, common commitment and common action.
Lisa is host of the Freedom Road Podcast, cohost of The FOUR Podcast and author of her weekly column on Substack, “The Truth Is…”. Her much anticipated book, Fortune: How Race Broke My Family And The World–And How To Repair It All, is now available!
