Moses was a Hebrew raised in the household of the Pharaoh of Egypt. He followed the call of God to free the Hebrew slaves held in Egypt and then lead them through the wilderness to the Promised Land. As people emerging from a pandemic wilderness, we can learn a lot from Moses’s story. It teaches us how to be a stronger community and a people of hope in an age when people seem more disconnected and worried than ever.
Wilderness experiences are not fun, but they are formative and they are good for us. The wilderness involves fear, even fear of God and God’s plan for us as individuals and a community. Still, the wilderness shapes us into a stronger community that can support and rely on one another. As we begin to exit the wilderness of a worldwide pandemic, we will examine how God used it to strengthen our community of faith in the same way that the Hebrews were strengthened thousands of years ago.
