Abusive Shepherds and Fat Sheep
Ezekiel offers the people in exile an oracle of combined judgment and restoration. The failed leaders of Israel are judged, and a promise is made for a new kind of a leader and a transformed community. As we see God's promises to his people, we consider our own lives and our responsibility toward leaders in our world.
Scripture References: Ezekiel 34:1-31

Join us this fall as we immerse ourselves in the powerful imagery of Ezekiel's visions, symbolic actions and prophetic announcements. We will see a God who judges fairly, but ultimately turns that judgment on himself. We will see a God who promises a glorious future. The book of Ezekiel will guide us into Knowing the God of Justice and Hope.
