“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
“History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.”
“The history books are written by the victors,” (Churchill), you can go on and on. One thing the above quotations do reveal is that histories, our histories, our nation’s histories, God’s history, have both a painful realism about them and a wonderful (and if you’re Mark Twain, whimsical) hopefulness.
This Sunday, we’ll continue our summer survey of the Bible in the Old Testament Histories. From Joshua through Ezra-Nehemiah, one thing is certain, God is deeply involved in the life of His world. Come share in our time of worship and learning, and hopefully you’ll come away with something that’ll open your eyes even wider to your place in God’s story.
