Today, we are beginning a new, sermon series based on the book of Habakkuk.  In the first of the three installments, we are looking at the prophet Habakkuk, who spent time arguing with God.

In these days of global pandemic, when we’re starting to settle into a ‘new normal,’ we are forced to acknowledge more than ever before that life can change in a split second.  For the first time, many of us are now facing uncertainties with our health, employment, finances, and education, as well as challenges with the availability of basic necessities such as food, medical and cleaning supplies, child care…  The list goes on and on.  It’s a frightening and difficult time to be alive.

One way we can deal with all of these new challenges is to use the book of Habakkuk as a useful guide and resource in these challenging times.  Over the next three weeks, we’ll be looking at the lessons we can find in the three short but impactful chapters of this often overlooked book.
