Elijah and the Wilderness Prophetic Tradition

(Recorded June 22, 2014).

This webinar consists of two parts.  In the first 40 minutes, Ched reports on his just-completed five week speaking trip (June-July 2014), talking about the various communities and events he engaged with across the U.S. and Canada (note: the Powerpoint comes up at 0:14:50).  You’ll hear stories of those living out watershed discipleship and solidarity with the marginalized, including the “Moral Monday” movement in North Carolina and the Children’s Defense Fund Freedom School in Tennessee.  In Part Two, which begins at 0:44:30, Ched looks at the Elijah cycle (I Kg 17 – II Kg 2), covering four archetypes of wilderness prophecy and how this can contribute to our own theology and practices.  In the final 10 minute we hear from Detroit theologian Jim Perkinson on his analysis of water justice struggles in his hometown, and his reflections on Jesus’ work as part of a resistance movement rooted in justice, sustainability and wilderness.
