Beginning September 16, 2021 - Ezra and Nehemiah
In Fall 2021, we will be studying the books of Ezra and Nehemiah. These books chronicle the Hebrew peoples' return to Jerusalem after their long captivity. The temple had been destroyed and the city was in ruins. We will study how the hand of God moved to restore the people to their rightful place of worship. This took hard work and organization on the part of the people, but more importantly, they had to trust God and his purposes for his holy temple and his holy city of Jerusalem.
As we emerge from the pandemic and a time of isolation, we too need to heed the strategies of the ancient Hebrews as we restore our church and continue the work God has ordained for St. John the Divine. Join us as we march forward together to rebuild the "broken walls" of this past year and reclaim the hearts of the people for God and his Son, Jesus Christ.
