Early Friday morning, Fr. Rick and a couple of others and I will get in our rental car and head for the Prophets Then, Prophets Now conference in Albuquerque, NM. I am looking forward to it, since well known Benedictine Joan Chittister, and Franciscan Fr. Richard Rohr will be leading it.
The idea is to connect our contemplative prayer life with our active vocations in the world. I really like the Scripture they have selected for the event:
Interesting how the presenters say that Prophets are one of the highest rankings of gifts in the Church, yet are often ignored and generally unwelcome.
If anyone cares to, a prayer for our journey would be appreciated.
