The Distinctive Message of Prophetic Religion

“It seems that our very existence as a species rests upon our understanding the truth of the prophetic experience. We are all of us creatures, bound to each other by our common origin and destiny.


On March 5, 1961 Rabbi Olan explored how religion reorients the way we understand our purpose in the universe. With its many facets, prophetic faith, he says, provides a critical foundation for us to find hope, courage, and our vital role in something greater than ourselves.

“The bare fact is that we will either accept each other as brothers of one Father, black and white, rich and poor, Jew and Christian… or we shall cease to exist altogether… The Prophetic faith revealed one of the vital experiences of life — the unity of all creation.”
