September 15: The Prophets
Israel’s prophets represented God to the people and represented the people to God. They help us to see what God is doing in changing times, to align with God’s work, and to resist the principalities and powers that entice us from faithful living. We’ll look specifically at passages from Isaiah and Ezekiel.
