Often written off as doomsday fortune-tellers, the biblical prophets actually have much relevance for communities and individuals of faith today! What did Amos’ vision of a “basket of end-of-summer fruit” mean (8:1)? Why did Hosea talk publicly about his marriage problems? How is Micah’s oft-quoted line, “You have been told what is good, and what the Lord requires of you: only to do justice and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God,” (6:8) a call to us in 2020? This study will focus particularly on the Books of Amos, Hosea, and Micah while also connecting the prophetic tradition to Jesus’ life and ministry as well as to contemporary prophetic voices. The only text required is access to a Bible; further resources will be distributed electronically.

When: Tuesdays beginning September 22 through October 27th from 6:30-8:30p.m.
