Patristic Reading: An excerpt from a treatise on the Lord’s Prayer by St. Cyprian

Now the boy Samuel was ministering to the Lord under Eli. The word of the Lord was rare in those days; visions were not widespread. (1 Sam 3:1)

Since it’s still fresh in my mind from the conference, I find myself drawn again to the story of Eli and Samuel.

This post is less a reflection and more an open discussion for the readers…..My query is this: Are we living in a time when the Word of the Lord is rare????

Having gone through seminary (and living the last four years in the Churchland bubble), I tend to always take the perspective that God is revealing Himself to the world on a regular basis….but I’m curious as to what others think.

Is it possible we are living in a time when visions are limited and revelations few????

I would love to hear your own thoughts and reflections on this question :). Leave a comment below and maybe we can figure out together what kind of age we are living in right now. 🙂
