If my people will humble themselves
by Sarah Sedgwick on October 4th, 2023
The story of Nehemiah is one that has many lessons for us. As Nehemiah heard of the devastation back home, the destruction of the city and the danger those who survived the exile were in, he wept, he fasted, and he sought God, confessing the sins of the nation and reminding God of the covenant He had made with Moses.When reading this yesterday I thought about the devastation we face in the 21st c...

Brotherly Love - the power of prayer
by Sarah Sedgwick on November 23rd, 2022
