I mention the book “The Prophets” by Abraham Heschel…do yourself a favor: https://www.amazon.com/Prophets-Perennial-Classics-Abraham-Heschel/dp/0060936991
This Sunday, I draw a parallel between the prophet Samuel and John the Baptist. Both are born miraculously from supposedly barren mothers…Samuel anoints King David and John the Baptist prepares the way and baptizes the new David, the Messiah.
The two moments of discipleship: “Here I am, Lord” and “Speak, your servant is listening.”
Jesus Christ is proposing something great to us…do we notice it?
