    Sometimes we ask "how long?" when we are suffering with pain, filled with anxiety, brokenhearted over injustice in the world, wondering if God will ever answer prayer, and so much more. We'll meet Simeon and Anna, two elderly people who had waited a lifetime for God to bring the spiritual redemption of their lost neighbors and consolation for their suffering nation, when suddenly the infant Messiah is dedicated in the Temple, and they are chosen as the two witnesses required by God's Law to proclaim Messiah's arrival.

    Giving God Glory
    Series: Nehemiah
    The walls of protection around Jerusalem had been miraculously constructed! Now would the community continue their mission as a witness to their neighbors or repeat the pattern of their ancestors, who had experienced God's redemption, only to drift away from God within the next generation? So the faith community gathers to renew God's covenant by listening to Scripture, which they haven't heard in a long time, and devote themselves to God. What they learn and how they respond can equip us to celebrate God's redemption and follow Christ for a lifetime rather than drift away from God.
