A city in ruins. A community struggling. A crisis of faith and an unpredictable future. That’s the setting for the story of Nehemiah. And what we learn in his journey about rebuilding and restoring what is broken is timeless. It has multiple layers. On the surface his story reaffirms this idea that “we can do more together.” But it also is an indicator of something more critical. When we do something together, it has the potential to affect how a generation sees God.
