In the first episode of "Have You Heard...", Rev. Phil Dieke and Jeb Bunting have a conversation with Damon Garcia, a writer, video essayist, and public theologian, about liberation theology and liberative Christianity.

In this conversation they discuss the origins and principles of liberation theology, the intersection between liberation and faith, and the radical message of Jesus. They also explore how liberative Christianity is being practiced and preached in the modern world, and the importance of grassroots movements and community engagement. The conversation highlights the need for a contextual and inclusive approach to theology that prioritizes the liberation of the marginalized and oppressed; as well as the intersection of faith, activism, and community.

They highlight the need for religious communities to actively engage in social justice and liberation movements, specifically the importance of viewing faith as a communal effort and allowing marginalized voices to shape and change religious communities. They also emphasize the need for inclusivity and affirmation of all individuals, regardless of their identities.

The conversation encourages young people to embrace a more collective mentality and seek community in third spaces if religious communities are not liberative. It concludes with a reminder that the journey of faith and activism is ever-evolving and that individuals are not alone in their pursuit of justice and liberation.
