A Rest Stop

We have reached another of the summer rest stops along Godsway 66.  Hopefully, these breaks allow time to enjoy vacations and other wonderful summer activities without falling behind in this trip through the entire Bible.  The overview for the next book, Zephaniah, will be posted on August 17.

In the meantime, enjoy some bonus readings from previous books.  This week, there are extra readings from the prophet Jeremiah.  Mostly, these are further explanations of the reasons why God is punishing the chosen people with defeat and exile.  However, there are also reasons for hope, as God explains the beginning of the painful process of moving from faithlessness to faith, especially in the now-chosen people -- a remnant of those exiled in Babylon.
