Father Peter joined monks of the Glastonbury Abbey in Hingham, Massachusetts for a discussion about the prophets, Jesus, and the prophetic voice today. His talk focused on the prophetic voice across faith traditions, with a special focus on the prophets recognized by the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions.
Father Peter spoke about the modern prophetic voice and those throughout our history who may not be formally recognized as prophets, but who have had the courage to stand up and speak God’s truth in society. In our lifetime, we have all seen people who speak truth to power and have lived a life in accordance with the prophetic voice, he says. The discussion provided guidance on how we can be the prophetic voice in modern society and how we can all live our faith in action.
