01/29/2017 Nurturing the Inner Prophet

Rev. Teresa Schwartz

In our liberal religious tradition, prophecy is less about fore-telling and more about truth-telling – and that is something we can each do. Theologian Walter Brueggemann suggests that there are three urgent prophetic tasks: to face reality, to grieve, and to hope. We are each navigating this path from reality, to grief, to hope in our personal and communal lives. While we may be in a so-called political post truth age, there are prophets among – and inside of each of us.
