Episode 143 – Hearing The Voice & Wisdom Of Ms. Lisa Sharon Harper (Special Episode)
Episode sponsored by DiverseChurchJobs.com
In this special edition of the The Wise Idea Podcast, we welcomed Ms. Lisa Sharon Harper, Founder and President of FreedomRoad.us. Her visit to our podcast was specifically in response to her engagement and discussion and response to the statement released by the Southern Baptist Convention Seminary Presidents in December 2020.
Several weeks ago, the Evangelical and Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) was set ablaze with a statement that was released by the six SBC Seminary Presidents essentially making a pretty forceful stance and position on race and justice, particularly around critical race theory. You can read the official statement here.
Twitter and Social Media and Influencers kicked it into high gear.
Beth Moore offered her thoughts. You can read them here.
Two African American Pastors (with considerable platforms) have cut ties with SBC. You can read about them and their statements here.
And more specifically, Lisa Sharon Harper offered a thorough and scathing response that also clarified critical race theory. You can read her response/thread here.
You can also read a few additional articles here:
