Learning from Elijah
Movies and pop culture can lead us to view prophets as intimidating, larger-than-life, and full of judgment. There's an element of truth there, and it's true that much of Elijah's story involves judgment on Israel, but if we take the time to study the prophet Elijah we'll discover a simple man with doubts and faith like the rest of us. In this Groundwork series, we dig into the stories of this simple prophet Elijah to encounter a powerful God and discover that this God listens, cares, and remains involved in the lives of his people which provides roots for our faith and a basis for our hope.
