QRT #134 – Howard Macy Reviews: “Walk Humbly, Serve Boldly: Modern Quakers as Everyday Prophets” by Margery Post-Abbott

Are Friends in your circles (or you yourself) experiencing a call to speak and act prophetically in this moment, when the US (and perhaps other countries) seems more open than usual to moving toward racial and economic justice, and dismantling violent and oppressive systems?

In QRT #134, Howard Macy (emeritus, George Fox University ) reviews Margery Post Abbott’s book, Walk Humbly, Serve Boldly: Modern Quakers as Everyday Prophets (Abbott pictured at left). In it, she discusses “everyday prophets” and “radical prophets.” Macy notes: “A key theme of the book is that individual prophetic witness takes root in the life of the community, ideally in a community which has become ‘a band of everyday prophets.’”

In what ways is your community creating space for prophetic voices to emerge? How does your community respond to prophetic messages? Do you consider yourself an “everyday prophet” or a “radical prophet”? Read Macy’s review to learn more (Macy pictured at right), and then order Walk Humbly, Serve Boldly to help you discern your own prophetic witness in this moment. Order QRT #134 here.
