    A fellow Christian tells you that for him the Bible is dry and boring. In other words, spiritual renewal is not for us, so that we can lead happy, fulfilled lives to the neglect of the world. How might revival happen here? As pastors, we are encouraged to practice self-care and warned of the results of its neglect. But, there can be few questions, at least on a geographic basis, over what is meant by England.

    They have shown an ability to reach from the centre to the suburb, but perhaps no further. Ezra tells us that Ezra was a scribe skilled in the law of Moses. Revivals historically start here. But, then, do we just sit around and wait for God to work, or is there something that we can do?

    After 70 years in Babylon, with the city of Jerusalem and the Temple in ruins, how could things ever be restored? It has to grow and sustain the widest possible nexus of relationships. It is an extraordinarily easy mistake to make. I strongly recommend pastors to take a renewal leave when they have gone through a stressful siege of ministry or heavy challenges in their personal life but ideally one should not be waiting to the point of burn-out to take time away. Why would Cyrus, a pagan king, issue a decree for the Jews to return to Israel and rebuild their Temple? Christian history is a series of ebbs and flows, declines and inclines—often simultaneously, in different parts of the world.

Lesson 1: God’s Way of Renewal (Ezra 1:1

Church renewal is a term widely used by church leaders to express hope for revitalization of the Church (as well as Christianity in general) in light of the decline of Christianity in many western countries.
