Journey to the Promised Land

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.

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past thirteen years. The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
