"Beginning today and during these five weeks—we’re spending time with another truth-teller—one of the most unusual characters in all of Scripture—the prophet Elijah. Elijah is something of a legend—we always talk about him with a kind of reverence—but he was also wonderfully human. James in the New Testament tells us that Elijah was—quote—“a man just like us.” He was human—sometimes he was lonely—sometimes he was angry—depressed—afraid . . . But he ALSO had this huge capacity for trusting GOD."
