For our final session in “Talking Like a Prophet”, we will be joined by Will O’Brien, a long-time faith-based activist, leader of advocacy efforts at Project H.O.M.E, and coordinator of The Alternative Seminary, an informal, grassroots, non-institutional program of biblical study here in Philadelphia.
Will will speak about why the prophetic tradition is important in our social context today and lead us in a reflection about what prophetic ministry looks like for each of us.
We will start right at 10:00 – please join us even if you have not come to previous classes!
