52 days. It’s not a long time. Less than two months. Less than half a season of your favorite tv series. Less than two units in your chemistry class. That’s how long it took Nehemiah to build a wall around his entire city—not with cranes, but with bricks and human hands. It’s really amazing. But Nehemiah didn’t do it alone. There are lists in the Bible of different people, different families who pitched in. Some of them used their specific talents. Others just jumped in where they were needed. And, in doing so, they became a picture of what the Church was meant to be. People of various talents and abilities working toward one goal—unique but unified. And we have the opportunity to do the same – to work as one body, toward one goal. As we do, we may just discover that we are becoming the people we were meant to be all along.
