Pentecost 22 – In the Adelaide region, several churches are at present celebrating significant anniversaries as they look back with pride to the glory days of the past. But during the sixth century BC, the Jewish people were looking back to their former magnificent temple with regret; it had been destroyed a generation or more ago, and the thought of its inadequate replacement was quite discouraging. But the prophet Haggai had a message for them; God was telling them, "Take courage; I'm with you; don't be afraid." And centuries later, when the Thessalonian Christians were fearful for their future, they were encouraged to stick to just the basics of what they had been taught. God's purposes are bigger than ours;
Haggai 1: 15b - 2: 9; 2 Thessalonians 2: 1-5, 13-17
