Bible Text: Ezra 1:1-7, Esther 4:6-17 | Speaker: Rev. Dr. Ginger Hertenstein | Series: Rebuilding the City | Over the course of history, nations have dealt with unexpected crises—war, disease, natural disaster, economic distress or ???—just fill in the blank! Life is not that simple, but each time in order to recover well, men and women bravely stepped up. Theodore Roosevelt said, “Let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is…fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”
As we enter this period of reopening our nation, for the next eight weeks we will see what the Bible has to say about overcoming disaster. We begin a series called “Rebuilding a City: Trusting God & Each Other” using the book of Nehemiah. This week we meet ONLINE FOR WORSHIP at 10:30. VIRTUAL COMMUNION takes place, so please have some bread or crackers and grape juice ready! Very soon we will be back together, but until then, I can’t wait for you to join us online!
