The Nearness of God, Nehemiah 8:1-18

We are in a series in the book of Nehemiah called, Building People.  Nehemiah begins writing as the people of God are leaving exile in Babylon and returning to Jerusalem.  The city is destroyed, but far more has been lost than walls and sacred spaces.  The people of God have forgotten their first love.  In God's infinite wisdom he uses Nehemiah to unite the people in rebuilding the city, but the true purpose is rebuilding the hearts of God's people. 

Pastor Jeff continues our series this week and helps us to remember that we are more like our Old Testament brothers and sisters than we think.
