Today we will hear the scripture from Exodus when the Hebrew people left Egypt on a very long journey. Leaving Egypt was not a pleasure excursion for them. But the story of their pilgrimage in the desert in the Book of Exodus reminds us that traveling, moving, leaving home, is part of our Judeo-Christian tradition. Each of us finds ourselves sometime in life needing to leave the familiar in order to grow and to thrive. Beginning a journey involves leaving “home”–whether that is a physical place in order to explore another part of the world, or changing a mindset that is keeping us from expanding our spiritual capacity. Our question for today is this: “What must we do to embark into the unknown?”
The weekend gathering of the scattered church, in-person and online, to celebrate in word, song & sacrament the word of God in our lives throughout the week. Worship is a way of life that happens every day wherever we are, but we gather to celebrate the Spirit’s work in us and through us. Language and patterns will be adapted to our new reality.
