1 Kings 8, Ezra 6, Nehemiah 9, Haggai 2
The twelfth sermon of our 23 week series “Setting the Table” - exploring the narrative of Scripture.
The Israelites had been taken into slavery. Their world was sent into chaos, their boxes smashed; everything they had ever known changed in a moment - and then they are allowed to return to their land. They go back, they build up the city walls, they restore the temple; but it’s just not the same anymore.
Sometimes we return home, only to realize that it’s not really home anymore.
