    Your Heart Will Lead You Home

    Your Heart Will Lead You Home

    Return

    The challenging scripture we are looking at this week is Ezra chapters 9 and 10. Returning from exile brings challenges for everyone and a difficult decision is made about wives of the exiles. Is it surprising or not that not one woman is heard from on the issue?   Accompanying Scripture:Ezra 9: 1-4
