Crying to God: Preaching Good Friday

In this episode of Prophetic Voices: Preaching and Teaching Beloved Community, we speak with Episcopalians committed to the Beloved Community about the texts for Good Friday. The texts covered in this episode are Psalm 22 and John 18:1-19:42. Our guests this week are:

  • Lelanda Lee, a former lay member of Executive Council representing Province VI and parishioner at St. Stephen’s in Longmont, Colo. She has done ABCD trainings and worked on racial reconciliation for many years.
  • Fr. Jerry Maynard, “The People’s Priest”. Working at the intersection of Church & society, Fr. Jerry seeks to embody radical solidarity through protest, praise, and community organizing in Houston, Tex.
  • The Rev. Dr. Sam Dessordi Leite, originally from Brazil, has been working with liturgical inculturation and multicultural ministries in The Episcopal Church. His passion has been helping communities to identify their social and cultural identities and express them through worship and popular devotions.

Prophetic Voices is hosted by the Rev. Isaiah “Shaneequa” Brokenleg, The Episcopal Church’s staff officer for Racial Reconciliation. For more information on Becoming Beloved Community, visit
