Episode 21 - Hard Work Never Killed Anyone, Part III: The Foundation of Prophetic Ministry, Listening with a Pastoral Heart

In this episode of Ergasia, we continue the exploration of the book Hard Work Never Killed Anyone: How the Idolisation of Work Sustains this Deadly Lie by John Bottomley, published by Morning Star Publishing in 2015.

What is the starting point of any prophetic ministry? How does our experience of injustice open us to the need to listen to the suffering of others? What role does God's judgement and redemptive grace play in this process?
