Today we're talking about poets and prophets, and how prophets are poets and vice-verse. The key writer who set us off on this is Walter Bruggeman - in particular his book 'The Prophetic Imagination'.

Circling around this topic we talk artistic communities, imagery in scripture, and where we find the poetic voice in the church today. Finally we throw in some Walt Whitman for good measure.
