Restoration, something that takes time but once completed turns out to be beautiful. What would it look like if we took sometime for God to do some restoration in our lives? What would grow from this? What will become new? In the base camp of our church community, near and far, we will continue in our new series: “Let Justice and Peace Flow”. We will explore the book of Ezekiel. We will learn more about God being our good shepherd. We will keep the gift of Sabbath, learn sacred stories, sing, pray, reflect, refuel, and revive our sense of reverence!
SCRIPTURE: Ezekiel 36:8-12 (NLT)
8 “But the mountains of Israel will produce heavy crops of fruit for my people—for they will be coming home again soon! 9 See, I care about you, and I will pay attention to you. Your ground will be plowed and your crops planted. 10 I will greatly increase the population of Israel, and the ruined cities will be rebuilt and filled with people. 11 I will increase not only the people, but also your animals. O mountains of Israel, I will bring people to live on you once again. I will make you even more prosperous than you were before. Then you will know that I am the Lord. 12 I will cause my people to walk on you once again, and you will be their territory. You will never again rob them of their children.
