what of the silent prophets…

i think it is also how people (typically the traditional conservative view of a prophet) have defined a prophet. which is more of a ‘telling it like it is, no holds barred truth teller’, which i think at times could be anyone not just a prophet. we tend to equate them the open mouths, but what of the silent prophets? what of ghandi? what of mother teresa? what of you or i? i think the definition of prophet (traditionally speaking) needs to be revised and reframed in light of the rhetoric that has been used and abused. i would also add that if a gift is unwrapped or received, it is still being received, but maybe not realized?
