Ezra Klein Show (Panoply): Yuval Harari, author of “Sapiens,” on AI, religion, and 60-day meditation retreats

Persuasion (Christ & Pop Culture): When You Fancy Yourself a Prophet

https://christandpopculture.com/persuasion-fancy-yourself-a-prophet-sharon-hodde-miller/

An interview with Sharon Hodde-Miller about what it means to have a true prophetic voice in contemporary settings. See her article in Mere Orthodoxy:

…evangelicalism’s prophetic bankruptcy. At a time when our country has utterly lost its moral center, this could have been our moment. Rather than negotiate with evil, we could have rejected worldly notions of “good” in a show of prophetic imagination. Instead, we accepted the terms the world set for us. We chose short-term gains over long-term credibility, and traded our birthright for porridge.
