The Leap of Faith Friday, Oct 11th

Lisa Sharon Harper

From Rome, we talk with the biographer of Pope Francis, Austen Ivereigh about the Synod of Bishops for the Amazon in Rome and the relationship between Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict.

On the Leap of Faith this week, Rabbi Julia Neuberger on Yom Kippur and the role of atonement in the Jewish Faith, in a week where two people lost their lives outside a synagogue in Germany.  Lisa Sharon Harper is in Ireland this weekend to address the Rubicon Conference. We talk about her evangelical faith and how, as a woman of colour, she perceives two kinds of faith, thick and thin and how her heritage has informed her faith.
