“The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will bring my people Israel and Judah back from captivity and restore them to the land I gave to their ancestors to possess.”
They will rebuild the ancient ruins
..and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
..that have been devastated for generations.
"Over the centuries, the work of Christ’s church has been lovingly maintained by a vast army of women and men who were ready to do anything that would further God’s cause: cleaning, catering, magazine preparation, flower arranging, building repairs, home visiting, leaflet distribution and scores of other tasks which will never be acclaimed this side of heaven, but they have been done for God’s glory and other people’s good, and that was reward enough."
(Raymond Brown, The Bible Speaks Today: The Message of Nehemiah. p68)
My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
We have a special Zoom meeting for children each Sunday around midday.
