Excerpt from the Introduction
The prophetic call is a call to the cutting edge of life. Prophets are those who look at life as it is and set out to expand it. They simply refuse to shrink a vision of tomorrow to the boundaries of yesterday…
During Lent this year I want to explore the Sunday Scriptures with you in light of the prophetic call asking: What does this call have to do with you? How will it affect your life? What will it mean to your own development and spiritual authenticity? As we journey with Jesus from the desert to the empty tomb a clear picture of the kind of prophet needed for our time emerges. These Lenten readings offer seven prophetic gifts that can empower us and shape a new world: the gift of desert struggle, accepting the call, finding our passion, seeing anew, compassionate weeping, courageous witness, and faithful endurance.
We must never forget that the prophets—people like you and me—discouraged by the present, weary from trying, still chose to follow the magnet toward truth, lest it and their souls wither within them. Let us embrace that spiritual legacy and welcome “The Prophet in You.”
