Season 3 Episode 3 | Rebuilding From The Rubble: Reminders of Return, Recovery and Re-imagination

October 23, 2021

The third in our season of conversations about Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi.

After an overview of some SB resources, we hear how Neil has narrowly avoided offended the Forestry Commission and later Jen has a gem about how to help young people hear from God.

Meanwhile the main part of the discussion centres around the book of Haggai. With only two chapters, it's a short read, but it's packed with challenge for all three presenters. 

This episode was engineered and edited by Aimee Higgins.
