Writing those four numerals in late 2020 as this theme is developed feels surreal. Who knows what things will look like in a few days, let alone when the calendar rolls around to a new year? The world has been thrown off kilter by a global health crisis and the accompanying economic and social turmoil left in its wake.

Everything is on its head as we seek to rebuild a better world.

Each week of the five week theme runs Sunday-Saturday and has its own subtheme, which contains daily Bible readings and thought triggers, see the Resource Pack PDF for more details. See the Discussion Group Questions PDF to see the material adapted for small Connect groups.
