Next Tuesday, I have the honour of hosting In Other Words. I have chosen a passage from Amos that intrigues me and brings me pause. I realize that the passage is a judgment passage of the past, but I wonder how it speaks to us today. Have you felt a famine for God's word? What has that looked like in your life? How did you come back? I would love Tuesday to be a dialogue of how we can keep the word of God alive and well in our lives and in the lives of others. Please come back on Tuesday and join the conversation.
The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign LORD,
“when I will send a famine through the land—
not a famine of food or a thirst for water,
but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD.
Men will stagger from sea to sea
and wander from north to east,
searching for the word of the LORD,
but they will not find it. ”
