Fall 2014 Semon Series: Calling All Prophets!


The fall sermon series, "Calling All Prophets!" will focus on listening for the word of God through many of the prophetic voices that were so much a part of the faith of ancient Israel, and a source of inspiration for Jesus. Elijah, Isaiah, Esther, Jonah, Ruth and Ezekiel: these men and women spoke truth to the abuse of power, called their people to greater accountability in their faith, and showed what life could look like when lived from the divine heart of compassion, mercy, and steadfast love. We will also open ourselves to the vision of prophets in our own time, who call us to love extravagantly and wholeheartedly for the common good.
