Podcast: Jarel Robinson-Brown: Prophetic rage: Fire shut in my bones

04 February 2021

0:00 / 0:00

On this week’s podcast, we bring you a talk given by the Revd Jarel Robinson-Brown, “Prophetic Rage: Fire shut in my bones.” The talk was given last Saturday at an online conference organised by SCM Press, “How to rage: Theology, activism and the Church.” We also publish an edited extract from the talk in this week’s Church Times.

He says: “There is no such thing as a prophetic life which is content to be prophetic in language only. Prophetic living, if it is of God, moves us to ask not just what must be said, but, more crucially, what must be done.” 

This talk was recorded before the row about a tweet that he posted about the clap for Captain Sir Tom Moore, for which he has apologised.

Tickets to watch back the livestream of the “How to Rage” conference are available here.

Jarel’s book, Black, Gay, British, Christian, Queer: Church and the famine of grace, is due to be published in July by SCM Press. It is available to pre-order from the Church Times Bookshop here.
