Deserts can be difficult places. Resources are low, obstacles abound, moving forward can be difficult.
The past few months have a desert feel to them.
- racial tensions,
- political turmoil,
- financial instability,
- uncertainty about the future,
- trying to determine the best way to educate our children this fall.
Over the next few weeks our services will focus on how best to travel desert seasons.
While traveling through a desert is often difficult, deserts can also be places of great opportunity and promise. We are going to focus on what we can learn about God, ourselves, and others that will help us navigate the world in a more peaceful and redeeming way.
In thinking of these desert seasons, I have been drawn to the story of the nation of Israel as God led them out of captivity in Egypt, toward the Promised Land. Their desert season was filled with lessons that prepared them to experience the best God had for them. I believe the same is true for us.
God is doing amazing things in our midst every day. Life may be overwhelming, and yet we are being prepared for the new thing that God is doing.
Join us as we explore how to walk this desert season in a way that prepares us to fully experience the transforming, renewing, restoring work of the Kingdom of God.
