Category: Sunday Sermons

It wasn’t a terribly long period of exile for those from the Southern Kingdom, but it was long enough for a couple of generations to come and go. The opportunity to return home was one that had to be seized by Israelites that, for the most part, only knew life in Babylon. And yet, this new adventure was God’s plan of restoration and deliverance for their whole people! It would require courage, sacrifice, and faith, but through that process, the community of God would find not only restoration for themselves, but also for their sons and daughters for generations to come.  (Ezek 37:1-14; Ezra 1:1-7, 6:14-15; Hag 1:1-9)
