Renovating life in troubled times
What is the current vision you have for your life? Things are tough. Global pandemics, culture wars, financial instability, institutions including the church, under suspicion. It's tempting to bunker down, to pull up the drawbridge and keep busy by tinkering with home (and self) improvement projects.
But is there a grander vision for your life? A building project that will stand the test of time?
Just such a renovation project is outlined for a people who are struggling to make sense of their national and personal struggles and it is recorded in the Old Testament book of Haggai.
In this talk Steve McAlpine takes us through a less well known part of the Bible and considers the grand vision for your life that it holds out.
