In The Desert

The next few weeks we will be focusing on the people of Abraham's time in the desert. As a people they just experienced a great exodus out of Egypt where they were in slavery. But knowing what we are leaving behind is only the beginning of a journey. It is a whole other thing to know where you are going.

The time in the desert was a time where the Hebrews were shaped as a community, they discovered who they are and where they were going. Let's camp in the desert the next few weeks together and allow God to shape us as a community.

Genesis and Exodus on Film

I have really enjoyed walking together as a church community through the journey of the patriarchs in the book of Genesis these last four months. I think it has been great to see these stories as one continuous story rather than the way many of us heard them as a children; often giving us the wrong impression that they were disconnected or that they stood alone. I think reading these stories together the last few months has helped us better see the overall themes and message from the text. It also has helped us see these stories as our stories and better enter into the narrative in our own lives.

The story continues these next two weeks with movie nights at our Corridor gatherings. On September 7th we will be wrapping up the book of Genesis and setting up the book of Exodus by watching Joseph the King of Dreams. On September 14th we will be watching The Prince of Egypt. I look forward to enjoying these movies together, followed by some reflection and discussion. See you there.
