Kingdom // Exile
“Exile” is not a word we use regularly, but it certainly sums up how we feel from time to time. Completely outside of God’s will and no sense of His presence being near us or bringing any comfort to us in our time of need. But what does it mean? What does it look like and feel like for each of us? How does it play into this whole idea of living as people of God’s kingdom?
The Exodus story tells of how the Israelites experienced God through their time in the wilderness. At times this movement parallels our own journey with God. Could there be something in this story for us?
