The Exile and its aftermath raised staggering questions for the people of God. Even after a small remnant of the people were able to return to Jerusalem under the rule of Cyrus, King of Persia, these questions remained. Israel began to retell their stories, and as they asked the question, what was God doing, they began to notice glimmers of hope.
August’s Calendar looks at Israel’s regrouping, and how they began to look back over their story.
August’s spiritual discipline is that of patience.
