Does God look more like us, or do we look more like Him? To what extent are we pulling God into our own agendas rather than allowing Him to transform the way we think about the world? Are we limiting our imagination by limiting God and the possibilities a life with Him might provide? These and other important questions lie behind the conversations in this course. In seeking to reflect theologically on matters such as testimony, accountability, power, and Christian thought more generally, we may find that many of our problems as a Christian community have less to do with our answers and more to do with our questions. Perhaps by looking at the issues we face from different perspectives God’s people can learn to please God together. Available on Multnomah Plus.

According to Jesus, prophets are honored, except not in their hometown or in their own families. What does it mean to speak prophetic words? Are whistleblowers prophets? Why do most prophets and whistleblowers end up being outcasts? Why would anyone ever be willing to speak truth to power given the likelihood of suffering that truth-telling typically brings? This is a sobering course that draws heavily from the stories of prophets in both the Old and New Testament. It’s a course on moral courage, a study of the faithfulness of God.
