Introduction to Bestiality and Zoophilia. Here we see the insidiousness of a pervasive narrative of lies and how they seep into our bones. Here in these verses of Jeremiah , we see that the prophet Jeremiah has internalized his own oppression.

I warned you that I was tired of the mockery.

You force me to say things that get me in trouble. And yet …. This is the persistence of God. Hebrew Bible scholar Walter Brueggemann has written extensively on the prophets. He says that the prophet has to maintain a delicate balance between truth and hope. Thus they are related, but in a sequence. It is of course possible to stay too long in such truthfulness, forever critiquing and warning and analyzing.

But of course there is at least as much danger, if not more, of rushing too soon to hope, before truth breaks the denial. Hope practiced in denial is no hope at all. Thus a prophetic [community] must have an acute sense about the world and know, in context, what word needs to be uttered and what word needs to be heard. I would put it this way: The prophetic action is one which creates a disruptive crisis of truth in the present… by bringing forward wisdom from the past … in order to triangulate on a hoped for future.

Review of Walter Brueggemann, Like Fire in the Bones

King sent to the committee reviewing whether then-lawyer Jefferson Beauregard Sessions should be given a federal judgeship for the Southern District of Alabama. Does anyone remember who the head of the Judiciary committee was in ? I write to express my sincere opposition to the confirmation of Jefferson B. Sessions as a federal district court judge for the Southern District of Alabama. My professional and personal roots in Alabama are deep and lasting. Sessions has used the awesome powers of his office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters.

For this reprehensible conduct, he should not be rewarded with a federal judgeship. King know so intimately the workings of this particular southern lawyer? Where was he born? What took place in Selma? In early , Dr. King, under the auspices of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference made Selma, Alabama, the focus of the efforts to register black voters in the South. Warren is interrupted in this first by the Senate presiding chairperson and then by the Senate majority leader, Senator Mitch McConnell, who says:. Now this is a rule devised in to prevent fist fights and dueling between our elected representatives.

The senate then votes on whether or not Sen. Warren has impugned the character of Sen. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Eerdmans. Like Fire in the Bones. Listening for the Prophetic Word in Jeremiah.
