Prophet Sunday

January 16, 2017

Last night at BSM, Rev. Samantha Evans preached on the prophetic words of Micah, an Old Testament prophet. Micah calls out to the people of Israel to be maladjusted to the injustices of their time and place, and calls out to us from history to be maladjusted in our time and place. God fulfills God’s covenant  – God’s promise – with humanity by forgiving Israel and continuing to be in relationship with them. God also invites Israel to be in relationship and fulfill their end of the covenant too – be being maladjusted to injustice, and bringing God’s justice into being.
