The Prophet’s Voice led by Jim Stewart – June 6 and 13
Throughout the ages, prophets have arisen who challenged the dominant powers that benefited the few and marginalized the many. In these two sessions, we will talk about the “prophetic voices” we hear in brief readings from Amos, Isaiah, and Matthew. What were their messages for their times? How do each of these messages of truth and compassion speak a critical word for us today and energize us to create a more just society?
