Richard Rohr says “the role of the prophets is to call us out of numbness.” Since the beginning of time, prophetic voices both in and outside of scripture have been calling us to consider change of some sort. Sometimes it is spiritual change, other times it may be economic, political, or systemic change. Prophets challenge us to consider a better future. Rising up, all around seems a strong sense of change brewing in the church, and in the wider world. People are rising up and calling individuals and communities, out of numbness and toward justice, mercy and love.
Where is that prophetic voice rising up in you…..?
What is it stirring up in you? What is God challenging you to consider?
