The prophets of the bible are ferociously creative and deadly dramatic living out God’s calling. When not summoning fire down on mountain tops, they are either marrying sex-workers (God bless you, Hosea) or dining out on locusts and wild honey. Whenever God wanted to cry out in the Old Testament it seems he called for a poet, and these wild-eyed prophets crafted words and metaphors to help us reimagine the world. Antagonistic, bold, and creative, these wordsmiths long remain an irritation to the church today. In this piece of filmed poetry, Matt Britton imagines the prophet Ezekiel taking a walk through our estates dreaming of a hope-filled world. Prophesying life and living, unity and community, hope and aspiration as an alternative to the trite cliches all too frequently spoken over our urban communities.
