I have been a musician my entire life. Of late, I have been fascinated by music, both "religious" and "secular" (although I'm beginning to feel that we often put too much of a barrier between the two), that is essentially prophetic. By "prophetic" I mean to suggest that the artist in question invites the listener to join him or her on a journey. This journey may or may not be to a place that exists; for really, the "reality" of the place is not all that important. What is important in prophecy is that it at the same time disorients our current worldview while reorienting us to another (thank you Brueggemann for this terminology!).
