The third chapter of Nehemiah is tempting to gloss over and read quickly. On the surface, it reads like a trivial listing of random names who contributed various parts to rebuilding the wall. But the list also underscores a crucial principle in developing and maintaining resilience: none of us can do it alone. We need the companionship and partnership of others in the journey. In modern terms of spiritual practices, we need to be part of a supportive, faithful small group of Christians with whom we can learn, pray, study, and do life together. And when each of us do our part and remain committed in small groups, the body of Christ can accomplish far more than we can as individuals.
