Zephaniah is an Old Testament prophet. He lived during the reigns of kings who abused power and cared little for justice or for God. The people lived under harsh judgements - corrupt judges awarded their land to the wealthy. Zephaniah expresses the longing for a king who would restore justice and protect the people.
The theme for this week is joy. What judgements hang over your head that stifle joy? How can you embrace joy today?
