This is the start of a new message series in the book of Daniel entitled ‘Confronting the Challenges of the New Normal’.
As we continue to work our way through this season of the pandemic, including the changes forced upon us, as well as loneliness, isolation, grief and loss, we look to Daniel who is an example from the scriptures of someone who handles challenges just like these. Daniel lived in a culture not unlike our own. It was not friendly to the people of God, not just foreign but hostile and he had to ask the question what faithfulness looked like in that environment.
In this first week we will be focusing on Daniel 1.
