This week’s Scripture passage –
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Zechariah+8%3A1-8%2C+11-17&version=NRSV

VIII.
Do the words of the Prophet offer you hope? Encouragement? A vision of a place, a home to get back to?

IX.
How does the prophet describe where the people are?

How does he describe where The Lord of Hosts wants them?

How does he describe what The Lord of Hosts wants for them?

How does he describe how The Lord of Hosts wants them to live?

X.
How do we take the instructions on how the people are to live?

Is it for the future restoration, redemption, return to the Kingdom, the coming of a New Kingdom, or maybe even the present time and place they find themselves in?

Do we wait for Kingdom living or do we live there now?

And, more to the point, perhaps, how do we begin to live there now?
