November 30 - December 6
Nehemiah 12: Worshipping the Lord

Look, I'm as happy as anyone else that the wall is finished.

And mad props to Nehemiah for making it happen -- no doubt about it.

And yes, I suppose that some kind of celebration is in order: a plaque, maybe, and a couple of speeches . . . 

But a parade?

With marching bands?

And Nehemiah as the Grand Marshal?

I'm sorry, but that just seems a little "over the top" -- especially when there's still a lot of work that needs to be done.

So why stop everything for a celebration?

Yes, why not wait until all the work is done?
