Ready for a funny story? A couple sundays ago at church, our Pastor was teaching Joshua and the battle of Jericho. Mid sermon he demonstrated how the Israelites blew the shofar horn prior to the wall falling, proclaiming their victory even before the wall fell. Pretty amazing. At the end of the service, I’m gathering my things and greeting people and I notice my missing husband. Then I hear it, a pretty loud blast of that horn! Yep, his trumpet playing days may be over, but he was chomping at the bit to blow that shofar! So our Pastor invited him to blast it in all three services the following week and it was pretty thrilling, especially imagining what kind of freedom and deliverance it was meant to declare!
“When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed…”
