MORE THAN WE IMAGINE

Join us this fall in studying the oft quoted, yet rarely read books of Israel’s minor prophets. We will study these alongside New Testament passages that speak to the passions and priorities of God and the hope that undergirds the life of His people. “To be a prophet is to be in fellowship with the feelings of God,” wrote the Jewish theologian Abraham Heschel. What did the Lord allow these prophets to “see” of His own heart in such seemingly strange things as a vision of locusts and the belly of a fish over the span of four centuries? How did God reveal His purposes for their lives in seasons of prosperity and calamity? What mattered to Him as they endured a divided nation, periods of exile, and the challenge of rebuilding? What was their response to the bold indictments leveled against them and the gracious invitations to seek again their Lord and King? And what are we to make of these stories today in light of the resurrection of Jesus and the gift of His Spirit? In the 8th century BC, Israel had a small imagination for the plans God had for them. Might He not want to expand our own for His glory, His church, and our good?

Might He imagine reconciliation where I’ve settled for regret?

Might He imagine community in place of my critical spirit?  

Might He imagine rivers of justice overflowing my own crooked judgments?  

My hunch is that we haven’t even yet imagined all that He longs to do in and through us, and isn’t it time we asked?

If you have any questions please contact Darlene Weaver at darlenegweaver@gmail.com. Registration information will be available soon.
