How attached are you to this community? Further, how aware and involved in Duncanville are its churches? Do you feel a personal sense of ownership? What about a sense of pride in your hometown? And if so, how do you engage in its economic, academic, civic, spiritual, or racial health? “There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about,” says Margaret Wheatley. Nehemiah would have said the same thing.
Nehemiah knew he could not rebuild his city without all of its citizens. In fact, people came not just from the city, but also from eight surrounding townships. All of the people felt a sense of community ownership. This week we learn how this massive job of rebuilding was accomplished.
