The Prophet Zephaniah, featured in this past Sunday’s readings, warns Israel that it will face destruction if the nation does not repent for its transgressions against God’s law. If they return faithfully to God’s teaching, God will turn away the nation’s enemies and God’s people will be able to “rejoice and exult” with all their heart.

In what ways have our church and our nation, turned away from God’s teachings in matters of racial justice and equity? What changes do we need to make, as a church and as a society, that would cause God to “rejoice and exult?”
