Lessons from the Women Prophets: From Miriam to Dorothy Day
What is the relevance of women prophets for whom we hear so little about? How can listening to the hearts of women prophets inform us about their intimate relationships with God? How did they find their prophetic voices, and how do we find ours?
Becoming a prophetic person starts with a spiritual practice. It moves from silence to thought to word and action. When our words and actions are rooted in our spiritual commitments, we become a light in the world and a force for good.
This program is an entry point into our own deep wisdom. Join us for an evening of prayer, discussion, reflection and celebration as we explore how to nurture our relationship with God, listen to the voice of God, and use our own prophetic voices. Join us to explore the landscape of our experience and ways to mine it for insight and ideas about the work ahead.
