A Rest Stop

This week, Godsway 66 takes a break.  The journey will continue next week with the readings and resources on the book of Ezra.

This rest stop offers a chance to catch a breath -- and also a chance to catch up on any past sermons and readings that were missed.  It also allows an opportunity to explore a few additional selections from previous books.  So, this week, there will be stories from Kings and Chronicles: miracles by the prophets Elijah and Elisha, a questionable attitude by a king, the clues that Bathsheba may have been removed from the story in 1 Chronicles, and the troubling fact that the Israelites relied on slave labor to build the Temple, despite having been slaves in Egypt themselves, once upon a time.
