As I went to pray about church yesterday, a dream I had that morning popped into my mind. As I reflected on it, I felt it important to lean into the themes found there. And out of those themes came this message, calling the post-pandemic church out of apathy.
There are two major streams of the prophetic in the church today. One form is of a more supernatural perspective, where God speaks to people and they speak out his word. The other form is of a more natural perspective, where the poor are preached about and actions are taken to provide for them. But these two streams shouldn't be separated. If God truly is supernaturally speaking to us, he will at some point speak to us about the poor. The prophetic life is both supernatural and natural—preaching and action.
