Faith in the Fire [Daniel 3]

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church, I continued our sermon series on the book of Daniel entitled “Daniel: Apocalyptic Imagination and Exile Faith.” This first weekend, “Faith in Exile,” offered me the chance to introduce the book of Daniel, while this weekend I focused on the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and the fiery furnace from Daniel 3. Throughout this series, I am giving attention to way in which we experience tension between our heavenly citizenship, or allegiance to God, and our earthly citizenship, or the claims of our culture.
