Weekend Review: You Were Made for More

This past weekend, we looked at how Nehemiah found a vision worth chasing. He wanted to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, to heal a people, and to bring dignity back to the land. I think many of us want similar visions. We might not want to build a wall, but we want to do something…
