The way to the land is through the wilderness. There is no way to get from here to there except by joining together and marching.Walter Brueggemann from Journey to the Common Good
No way forward to the promised land except by way of a wilderness. Ah!!! Great object lesson for our lives on this earth waiting for the final promised land of heaven. Our faith must be tested. Our resolve stressed. Our perseverance honed until “move in” day which occurs at death or upon return of Jesus.
